Tbh I’m not sure my solicitor has the contact details for my contact at the children services so I’m guessing that she will speak to her on Tuesday morning to sort this out I don’t have anything in writing from the social services it was just what she recommended me to do on the phone to get my solicitor to do an emergency cao, my wife has done some things too like not send the kids to school for nearly a week (last week ) just so I can’t goto see them as she is out the country atm on holiday with her daughter and not back until Monday evening but my kids are with her parents so the school and ss are not happy she has done this. But as far as I’m aware they will be at a school Tuesday and I will go to see them for the 1st time in nearly a month just so my kids know I am not giving up on them as they must think daddy has left us as not seen them for ages. I think this way my eldest may speak out more about what he has witnessed my wife doing to me and moreOk sometimes there isn't any joined up communication between services. Social services said to get the solicitor to do an emergency application. To me that means an ex parte order for the kids to stay with you until investigations are completed - either same day or next day hearing. But. It's a bank holiday week-end so I guess the court won't be open till Tuesday (not sure about that). And the non mol gets there Tuesday and the Solicitor said do the emergency hearing when she;s got the non mol (presumably because she can't do it before Tuesday).
So sounds to me like you need to be emailing the solicitor and saying you want to do the emergency hearing first thing on Tuesday and social services said to get an emergency order.
Although social services said this to you, do you have anything in writing? I think sometimes they need that or the social worker to attend to verify. Unless your solicitor knows otherwise.
