Story

So I became a dad in September 2016 and it was the happiest moment in my life. 6 months down the line and my life fell apart when my partner left me and stopped me from seeing Imogen.

I've jumped through hoops trying to arrange visitation and at first things started to look up in September 2017 when finally after 6 months of fighting to see her I got to see her. For a grand total of 12 hours split over 3 occasions. Then my visits were stopped again and for no reason.

I've enlisted a solicitor to help me try and take her to court to try and resolve this but my legal aid decision got declined due to insufficient evidence supplied by my solicitor. Again the appeal was declined for the same reasons as the original decision despite me providing my solicitor with all the information provided. Apparently I chose the wrong solicitor to entrust with my case.

I work had to make ends meet and even harder to try and see my daughter doing everything in my power to see her. I've been subject to my house being trashed by my ex partner and left with next to nothing in my flat and had to start from scratch. I'm finally in a stable job and want nothing better than to spend quality time with Imogen so she will actually know who I am.

I'm asking for your help with what ever you can to help me get enough funding together to go through the legal aid process again to overturn the original decision and proceed to court (with a reliable and recommend solicitor) enabling me to gain access to my daughter. No child should be subject to not knowing one of their parents, whether their parents get on or not, especially when they try everything to see them.

If anyone is out there who could help me and Imogen would be forever indebted to you.

Thank you for taking the time to read this and I hope people can see that this is not the way a child should be treated nor their father. Everyone deserves to know who their parents are.
