On the Shepherd's Pie thread, I mentioned our niece who is a recovering alcoholic. She has not seen her 9 year old son since a couple of days after she came out of rehab and left her husband (early October, I think) as he informed SS (after she left) that she is an unfit mother and has applied for sole custody.
She had a supervised access visit booked for this morning but, when she arrived, was told that the child didn't want to see her as it would be too upsetting just before Christmas. The SW also informed DN that her husband seemed very controlling. His controlling behaviour and violence were the reasons she left him. She has two older sons who have made accusations against her - we think instigated by the father.
Any advice about the position regarding a child refusing to see it's mother in this situation.
