Jagdev was approached by a concerned mother seeking legal advice because she felt cautious about allowing the father of her child unsupervised contact. In this situation, the father had not seen the child for several years and had prior convictions for serious offences.
Guidance and support
Our Family Law solicitors provided legal guidance throughout proceedings, working closely with a psychology expert in advancing our client’s submissions about the child having mental health concerns.
In the end, the judge was able to make an informed decision in the child’s best interests. This consisted of a phased approach, allowing the father contact in a controlled environment rather than outright unsupervised contact, which would have caused more harm to the child.
