Can I ask the father for help to buy my daughter a bed, even though I'm hoping he won't get contact with her through the court?
Hi, unsure on this please be kind. If me and my child’s dad are going through the court about contact due to DA to both of us, am I entitled to ask him for help towards getting her a toddler bed? I’m only 20 and yes he pays maint but not a lot and is on over £2000 a month compared to my £900 with benefits and work which obviously all goes on food and bills. She has her heart set on a bed and hoping the right bed will finally mean she stays in hers, if you know you know 😅. Anyway will it harm the court case if I ask for a little bit of help towards her bed even though I’m hoping he ends up with no contact with our daughter due to the threats to drown her etc?? I don’t see why she should miss out especially after what he put her through but if it will harm my case for him to not get contact with her through the court I’d rather find an alternative!

NQ. Have you thought of applying for a budgeting advance on your benefits to buy the bed

NQ. I don't really know the answer re the court case, but I would personally not try to contact him, simply because of the abuse. In my experience it could be something that he could hold over you and use it as a way to stay relevant (and in control) in your life. If he needs to be giving you more money, which sounds likely, the courts will (hopefully) sort that out. Good luck!!
