I have a 3yr old, and a 1yr old. Both are boys and they mean the world to me. In July this year My 3yr old witnessed me being assaulted by his father. Since then my 3yr old has refused to see his father stating he is a horrible man, and he is frightened from him. This man who assaulted me is also the father of my 1yr old boy. When I concieved our second child he asked for a DNA. This was taken and proved he is the father. He now is seeking contact with the 1yr old too. We have been to court with him applying for residence for both children. He has never paid any child maintance. And has declared to the inland revenue he earns less than £5 a week so no maintance would be recieved for the kids. My 3yr old has now started to make himself sick. i guess it's all worries of him seeing his father again. My son has asked me to speak to the courts and tell them he doesn't want to see his father. Has anyone been through something similar? could anyone give me tips as to what to do?
