A long running separation had left Oliver, a father of an eleven year old son, without contact for more than three years. He had been through the courts to fight for custody, and he sought legal advice. He did not have anywhere to turn, nor any money, and is unable to read or write. He had been referred by one of our organisations to us and we provided legal advice and continued support for some months. This included a referral to an external organisation for legal representation. Oliver now has the support he needs to present his case and deal with the issues he faces.
