Schlesinger Twins custody fight: Canceled visit

Help Beth Blog  Cancelled visit  Posted on January 20, 2013 by Beth

The visiting centre cancelled my visit on Tuesday 1st January because of the New Year’s Day holiday (even though there was a visit Christmas Day the week earlier). The father agreed to a substitute visit on Thursday 3rd January. I was then informed that the father had changed his mind and I could not have that visit after all. However, the visiting centre acknowledged that a visit was still owed to me and the father would make it up at a later date. I asked for last Sunday, the 13th January, but was told the father had ‘already made alternative arrangements.’

At the end of today’s visit I asked when I could have this substitute visit. I was told that the father no longer agreed to give it me and it’s now been cancelled! I asked why but no reason was given. I asked the woman from the visiting centre to confirm this in writing. She told me this ‘privilege’ would cost me 50 Euros! (in addition to the 42 Euros I must pay each visit- raised to 44 Euros next month).

The father is quoted in the court documents (2010) promising that should he be awarded custody, he would grant me a 50-50 split, that he would allow me to see the children whenever I liked and could even take them on extended holidays to England. Now I am lucky if I even get my once a week visit. Sammy and Benji are constantly deprived of contact with their mother.


  1. She may have lost her visitation due to being deemed a danger. A mother who uses her innocent children as public pawns in a fight with the father, must have her sanity and judgement placed under question.

    Has she been deemed a danger? Please present direct evidence to back up this accusation. Isn't it up to the court to decide whether visits should be cancelled rather than the father to make these decisions himself? Does he not have a legal obligation? Does anyone (apart from Rivka!!!) really think it is the mother, and not the father, who is cruelly treating the children as pawns?

  3. The way these two crazy parents are fighting over and killing their kids it will be a miracle if they turn out normal.

  4. Please try to keep the comments relevant to the post above. The discussion should be about the father's cancellation of allocated time for the children to spend with their mother.

  5. Fenner, you allege the mother is crazy. Please can you provide some evidence to your allegations.

    1. Fenner said both parents are crazy. Why are you only concerned about the mother being noted as crazy?

  6. Despite my well-recorded views about this case on the previous postings on this website, I wonder why she has to pay to visit the children. It does also seem odd that her visitation rights are not fixed and enforcable.

    What a mess.
