Hi. In 2014, a female got raped by her now ex partner as a result a child did get conceived. Once the child was born in December 2014, Department of Human Services got involved immediately because they had concerns about the father and a criminal investigation had just begun into the rape. At the time the mother didn't want anything to do with her child. For the father, his main assessment with Department of Human Services is the outcome of the criminal investigation . In March of 2015 they mother had changed her mind and wanted to start to get to know her child she had visitation with her child for a hour every week it then got increased to every week for 2 hours. In July 2015 there was a reconciliation meeting with both parents so both parents can voice there opinion on what they would like to see happen with the child. The reconciliation meeting got changed to a different date because the father didn't show up. A few days later, the mother went to a parenting course with her child for two weeks and passed the parenting course and all assessments required. Department of Human Services were going to give full custody of children and reunite mother and child on the last day of the parenting course but they weren't able to because the mother didn't have any accommodation. Department of Human Services still have the the intention to reunite mother and child, once the mother has reasonable accommodation. Since the parenting course, the mother has visitation with her daughter everyday for 4 hours. There is still a criminal investigation in regards to the rape. Apparently the father has just got interviewed by the police this week. My questions are: Will the mother's actions or her changing her mind and possible getting custody of her child affect the outcome of the current rape investigation on the father? What happens now in the police investigation after the father has been interviewed?
