I have a lawer who is not happy with case workers as they always seem to be on holiday sick or training days and they are very slow getting back to my lawer and when we do hear from them all they say is he is not telling us anything and they cant get to the bottem of it

You need to work with Child Protection to get to the bottom of the issues (I assume he is in care with them). They will not release him until they can be sure he is safe in your home, and at this point, if he is refusing to have contact with you, this is not going to happen. Have you spoken to his case worker to find out more details of what is happening and get some idea on what the procedure is? Really, the process will depend on what has been recommended by psychologists and other professionals, whether he self harmed deliberately and the reasons he gave them. There are so many variables that could come into play here that it is impossibly for anyone here to give you real advice. If you get no answers from case workers, it is possibly worth also getting yourself a lawyer to assist you with the proceedings.
