Vexatious Litigant?

(4 Posts)

How many times can an NRP apply to the courts for a variation on a contact order before moves can be made to stop them?
Residence order in place, contact order made less than a year ago and children still unsettled and unhappy during contact at times.
NRP is litigant in person, long history of documented abuse/ NMOS/ occupancy orders/SS involvement)

Latest summons claims that the issues he wants addresses were overlooked by the court (they weren't he just didn't like the outcome)

As a LIP can he just keep making applications indefinitely? He has been removed from court a number of times for becoming aggressive with the judge so I'm hoping that it's the same one sitting this time.

I can't ever see an end to this sad

Look at section 91(14) of the children act and ask for one of these orders ....

Special Guardianship Order - they have to prove to the Court that there is a genuine reason to return to Court, that things have changed! If the contact is still causing the children to be unsettled you can always go for reduction in contact at the same hearing - so use it against him, may make him think twice before going to Court again.

Thank you both. This is his first attempt to change the order but I know that if it IS amended to suit him, then that leaves the door wide open for his next proposed change. If it isn't amended, it will wind him up even more and he's bound to try again.
Is a 9 (14) likely to be granted on this first attempt ?
