I haven't seen my adorable gs for 6 months as his mother my daughter wont let me. He has been in hospital for a further hip and leg op and I have had no information as to how it has gone or how he is. I have tried Mediation suggested by my solicitor and she did not attend. My son in law whom I have always got on with seems to have just opted out and has had no correspondence with me, so I now face Court in two weeks. My gs is approaching 12 and I want him to have a normal life with friends and clubs he belongs to so have asked for 2 hours a month which is ridiculously low but I don't want him to feel resentful at having to stay in with me but want him to be happy with his friends and x box. My daughter has had mental health issues for over 30 years and likes to exercise control not just with me but her husband also. My 20 year old granddaughter left home as soon as she was 18 to get away from it all but she isn't texting me as she thinks I am being selfish and basically wants to keep out of it. I am representing myself at court owing to the huge solicitor cost. Has anyone been through this or has any comments please. I shouldn't be scared at my age but I am as Court is such a big step but I do want contact with my gs.
