Supervised contact with a Father with alcohol misuse issues

Marie represents the Mother in a case where the children have been seeing their Father on a supervised basis over a number of years, after the end of the parties’ relationship. This was as a result of concerns about his alcohol misuse, as well as domestic abuse allegations.

At the FHDRA the court listed the matter for a fact finding hearing pending Police evidence, and ordered hair strand testing in relation to alcohol use. There will also be a s.7 report in due course. Contact is to remain supervised in the meantime.
