I am totally clueless about family courts/social services and would really like some advice on behalf of a friend.
He has a young child who he has being given (by the courts) access to see regularly - the mother allowed this initially and then not played ball. The mother has a history of problems and is known to social services. There is a strong chance that the baby is at risk with her and her and it has come to light that they are planning to move.
He is progressing things with his solicitor but it seems very slow and in the meantime there is a real worry that they may disappear.
I am sure he has it all in hand but I am so worried for them and wondered if anyone can suggest anything further that he should be doing.
He could consider applying for a prohibited steps order to prevent a move. Courts have been known to grant them in some cases, though they aren't common. Depends what the reason for the move is. He must keep social services on side.
