In 2012 a care order was made for my children. Over the 4 and a half years there have been so many changes. But throughout i have worked well with the local authority, attended every contact and meeting, followed every rule i was set to a tee and always been told that i am not a danger to my children or to anyone else. I have changed from being someone very downtrodden, having anxiety and depression, and made homeless from losing my children to being strong and independent, with a nice home, extra bedroom, have been studying so i have professional qualifications behind me, and studying to further this into a higher degree, got a job and wotked hard so that now i have been promoted and in charge of 4 services for people with special needs.
(this is not me blowing my own trumpet, im trying to set the scene really). My eldest son has just turned 16 and is allowed to spend as much time with me as he likes but for all the others its still supervised 1 and a half hours per week. I wanted to go to court to overturn the care order but would not have legal advice as i cant get legal aid and cant afford a solicitor. My support worker at contact suggested applying instead to changing to a supervision order.
I dont know anything about it and would love some advice.
I didn't find the right solution from the internet.
