Father regains relationship with children

A Father from Bath has resumed his relationship with his children after their Mother stopped all contact for almost two years citing serious and unfounded allegations against him of abuse.  This suspension of contact followed years of litigation and this Father was facing the real possibility that he would not see his children again.  Upon instructing Helen Fitzsimons in the summer of 2017, an application was issued for a transfer of residence and a psychological assessment of the family on the basis that the Mother would not support contact.  Francesca Wiley QC was instructed for this important interim hearing and a psychological assessment was ordered.  Following the psychological assessment and filing of detailed evidence on behalf of the Father, a Court order was obtained to resume regular staying and holiday contact which has been very successful.  We secured a provision that if these child arrangements were not adhered to or if the Mother did not support those arrangements the Father could restore the matter to Court in respect of the change of residence.  This grateful Father said ‘I hold you and Fran in the highest regard and the outcome speaks for itself – the children are really happy in my care and I am extremely thankful.’
