Changes to Leave to remove applications

The process of Leave to Remove applications for families wanting to start a new life needs to be reviewed. We found that our case was listened to by a judge who based everything upon one Cafcass interview  where mother was not listened too and also the children were not listened too and found the officer was already biased towards father who had been interviewed first with his new wife and no other individuals such as their schools and people that see the children daily are spoken to for their opinions. 

An ex partner can make up lies totally unfounded and the person bringing up the children who has residency and who makes the every day decisions for those children and who has suffered domestic abuse, power and control for many years is not listened too.

The children have suffered from power and control and made to strip at the front door at contact visits amongst other behaviours since separation.

My new husband has brought my children up for over three years in a loving environment but that is not taken into account, only the years the children spent being in a family unit with abusive ex are important.

My children not only suffered a marriage split when I was finally brave enough to get out but are put through the mill by Cafcass as this organisation advised the judge it was better for my children to remain in the UK with me bringing them up on one salary. I since sold my car and moved house. My husband moved to Australia due to his health as he couldn’t find new employment working indoors in the UK. He has a new career and a full time job and a home ready waiting for us to join him.

We remain in contact by FaceTime and hope our marriage (married last summer) and my children have the closeness they once had survive the years apart. My eldest daughter no longer has contact with father and feels the organisations which are there to protect her, have let her down. She now only trusts my new husband and I.

I wouldn’t want any other families to suffer this trauma.
