Any advice from anyone suffering similar? I have two children a daughter aged 4 and a son aged 20 months, I was with my ex partner for 4 years and he has over ten domestic violence offenses against him to me, I threw him out when my son was born, since then I married a new partner and suffered very severe depression and have a few times has to seek help at hospital, in September 2012 I agreed my daughter goes to a family member on a temporary basis and I was threatened by social services that although they had no concerns about my sons care, if I tried to get my daughter back they will start pre proceedings on my son. I never signed the section 20 for my daughter and today I withdrew my consent for my daughter to remain with the family member and I want her back... Social services have started court proceedings for both my children even though neither child has suffered and harm and I've done everything they have asked...ie courses ect... They have no reason as to why my daughter cannot return other than my depression could spiral out of control again even though I'm recovered, ... Now they are applying for a interm care order for my son even though by their own admission he is a healthy happy well loved child in no risk of harm but their excuse is that they can't take one child to court without the other
