Hi, I have 3 children 2 of which are step children. Just recently the BM has stopped contact (for taking them back 30 mins late). I married my husband over 3 years ago and for the first 2 years I was main carer for my step children up until recently where the BM wanted a chance at being in there lives, which we had no problem with, for some reason BM doesn't like me possibly because she feels threatened (although she shouldn't I never want to replace her).
BM has stopped all contact for myself and step children's father as well as their 5 year old step sister. BM had set up mediation to which my husband had attended but BM refused to go. BM Has since said she doesn't want to go to mediation as she is heavily pregnant and doesn't want the hassle but had told my husband that if he wants to see his children HE MUST get a court order!
We don't know what to do or how to go about it a court order is a hell of a lot of money, we go round on the days we are supposed to have them but BM is either not there or point blank refuses to let us have them. My daughter is missing them terribly even though they are at the same school, although BM has told my step children that they cannot play with their step sister. All we want is regular contact with them and are missing them terribly as I know my step children feel the same as the teachers have told me they have been upset about the whole situation.
Has anyone got advise on what we can do?
