this is unsettling for the child and is an emotional ride for the childs feelings. There was no bonding between the parent and the child. The parent becomes a stranger. Some out there can relate to this story whether its child access, family court matters eg separation, foster care. When the parent chooses to stay away and then chooses when to come back into the childs life is not good for the child. Theres been violence, the parent has uncontrollable illness that the parent nearly assaulted the child before twelve months. The parent cannot due to being incapacitated sign even under a lawyer a parenting plan. The parent had been in supported accommodation therefore unable to care for themselves. The other parent has okayed access but with their family in attendance but with concerns still on the childs safety if put into this situation. Being incapacitated, no legal documents signed the incapacitated parent can still take the child away at any time creating fear within the family. No one would never accompany the other parent in a vehicle to attend incase of violence. The incapacitated parent had also entered into a relationship that children were removed from child protection services therefore the child may be put at risk. The new partner is claiming that this parent is a good parent. What do you think? Have you been in similar circumstances or know of situations? The child is safe and does not experience any violence with the parent they reside with. The other parent has smashed up houses and leaving them as unlivable.

Post your story
  • The hospitals are leaving new parents home too long before time


  • wow poor child…that’s all i can say


  • This situation would be heartbreaking for the child..
    my nieces father hardly sees my nieces and it’s heartbreaking. But we don’t have all the other concerns to deal with that you have mentioned. That would be terrible


  • It sounds as though you need formal intervention like a family court order.

    • Cant get a faMily court order as hes been declared as incapacitated so he cannot sign any paperwork. Its been through mediation too. We held on to the last minute last time and no orders were given. He can still take the child then we have to fight to get him returned. He cant look after himself yet alone a child


  • Is this someone that you know or is this a hypothetical situation? Is this a scenario for general discussion – a what would you do? It is not quite clear and I would like to give an answer. If this is someone close to you? I hope everyone is receiving social services/supports and assistance.
