Dear Yvonne Jenkins,

Thanks for your response.

Please clarify one point - in your resppnse you say

- ""2. Was the one in the period 2013 - 2017 also subject to Family
Court proceedings?
Ans: The one child in the period 2013-2017, was not subject to care
proceedings. ""

Care proceedings is one part of family proceedings - were there any other family proceedings for this case?

Thanks in advance of your response.

Yours sincerely,

dai pugh
