Child access matters between separated couples and their friends and family members are civil cases. You should seek advice from a Solicitor.
We have no powers to go and remove children unless there is a concern for the child’s safety. We will do a welfare check on your child to confirm that the child is fit and well if there are possible concerns over their wellbeing.
We cannot remove a child unless there is a specific power given to us within a court order or we are satisfied that a child, is or will be subject to significant harm.
If there have been any threats, or use of violence then this is a police matter and should be reported to us on 101.
If a child or anyone is in immediate danger you should call 999.
You can get free independent and confidential advice on legal, money and other problems from the Citizen's Advice Bureau.
