Need some advice re: DSD who is 6.
Her mother took off to QLD when she was 4. We're in SA.
BM applied for DSD's surname to be changed to her husbands but it didn't go through due to paperwork issues.
BM refuses to let DP have anything to do with his daughter.
We tried friend requesting DSD on facebook, which is run by BM. We were blocked, and blocked from BM's account also. (although she has DP's entire family on their fb??)
So what next?
Do we need to see a lawyer before mediation? Or can we do mediation without having seen a lawyer?
DP hasn't seen or spoken to his daughter since she was taken away - DSD wouldn't even know him now. She calls the other man Daddy.
We want access to DSD - but don't know where to start. HELP???
ETA: there are not & never have been any orders in place.
Me (27) & Him (25) = DSD (6), DS (6), DSD (3) & DD (2) plus TTC from Dec 2011 :-)
