We contact a solicitor, who recommends a barrister, who is in fact a solicitor.
We ring her.
We are not entitled to legal aid.
She offers to half her usual rate to the Legal Aid rate.
It will cost £500, to consider the papers, and attend tomorrow’s hearing.
We are desperate.
I have ceased to function.
My husband take the papers to the solicitor I contacted to scan to the barrister (solicitor).
She asks court for an adjournment to a later time/date as we have only just got the papers.
But they will only postpone until 12pm tomorrow.
Yet, the in application, the hearing date was on the March 10th.
Without our knowledge .
Only 3 days before the social services manager had asked, ‘What they could do to rebuild our trust?’.
No concerns about our care of Issy, had ever been raised and there was not even a hint that court proceeding would ever be applied for, yet the Local Authority a hearing date of the 10th March.
Now, I see the lodge lady, and a nice lady had always been a set up to get evidence for intervention in March when their education funding ceased, but Issy had almost walked down the close.
Lodge lady etc must have felt Issy out of the house would weaken the case so a non existent punch was alleged.
I wondered how many of more applications had been prepared ?
One in April 2014 when Issy was traumatised, her NAS PTSD reignited and exacerbated by her being told and hearing discussions, that she could not live with Mummy and Daddy.
And I put up a fight, and, revealed their sexed up core assessment, and spying education team and withdrew the needed parent consent to the education package.
Then a new attack in the guise of new, ‘unspying’ agency workers.
Unknown to me lead by a trainee social worker. ‘Who was a good ‘motivator’.
And then there had been a secret social worker as part of a chaotic 15 worker, uncoordinated 3 night respite team, when I was not supposed to be at home. They hoped for an emergency admission via MHA section to a CAMHS/NHS ‘acute pathway centre.
And the 8 month agency support surveillance by the said trainee and additional previous student/agency support, newly qualified social worker was probably stopped by this blog, scaring off their large well known, ‘reputable’ agency in October.
And then, the last, very sly, sideways attack, by a purported ‘independent’, personal services education package, recommended by the LA who had spent hours of meetings to regain ‘our trust’ convincing us that they had the skills to get Issy out of the house again.
But were in fact, the most vicious Trojan horse.
So desperate for a quick and conclusive result they couldn’t wait to say that, loving, weary, self sacrificing parent had punched their cherished daughter in the stomach..
All this ‘support’ had cost tens of thousands of our council tax money, to stitch up, and lie about loving parents, fighting, for their disabled daughter’s happiness, and coping with her state abuse.
A daughter, who had been all her life, horribly abused by the state for millions.
So, they could make even more money, £4,500 + per week in independent living and pharma kickbacks.
Social workers are under a duty in their Code of Conduct to keep a family together, and respect Human Right to privacy and a family life.
So all is illegal but still the courts rubber stamp.
The only email I receive from our barrister ( solicitor) of substance, is about my blog.
She suggests I voluntarily agree not to mention details of the proceedings, or anything more relating to Isabel in my blog, or on any social media.
The Local Authority solicitor had said the same in his letter with the court papers.
Yet, the actual court application states the actual legal prohibition, that I not to mention Issy’s name, and address.
I instruct my solicitor, to expressly request, as all the details are already in the public domain via the blog the judge open up the proceedings.
Particularly, as it has been shown that a carer had maliciously make up a story of abuse, and neglect , there is a long history of us being targeted by the social services and Isabel has been badly abused by the state , now and in the past, so such exposure is not only in her best interests but the publics.
As this appears to be happening throughout the country to all autistics, and mentally disordered as the only adult services support is removal to residential care.
And, there is a conflict between the agencies and the LA and Isabel’s interests as huge sums of money will be paid for her ‘care’ so transparency of process is essential to ensure a fair hearing.
But our solicitor didn’t make any of these points to the Judge.
I had interviewed a private autistic specialist care agency.
They start tomorrow.
If only, and why did I not do this over a year ago.
Trust of state, fear, lack of information, I don’t know.
The order is an interim one, to remove Isabel, deprivation of liberty, and stop all contact with us, and, as you can imagine the statements from the carers are spun, cue seeking trivia, and lies.
