A lack of response from the Norwegian family welfare office in Mo i Rana leader Justin Smith

So, a good while ago, the leader of the Norwegian family welfare office in Mo i Rana, Justin Smith, contacted me as he wanted a meeting about the roles the people in the office and the person assisting me in my visits seeing the kids have.

I'm not sure what the deal was, because the meeting so far hasn't taken place. But it might have been that I privately wanted to pay the person assisting me (Rubi Stjernen) in these visits for more time, so I could spend more time with the kids, or it could be because I've asked Rubi to welcome the kids, so that I don't have to deal with the the kids mom (Hilde Olsen), her contact person (Vebjørn Svidal, Hilde's brother-in-law an police officer) or any other member of that family.

Anyway, I agreed to such a meeting, then a bit later I figured out there were other things I wanted to discuss, as this conflict about the kids has been going on for 6+ years, and the family welfare office in Trondheim and Mo i Rana have been involved in the conflict for 6+ years.

I sent this email asking for an extended meeting, with the things the leader of the Mo i Rana office wanted to discuss as the first point over 7 weeks ago, but haven't heard anything after that. I send a reminder some weeks ago, and I sent a final reminder last Friday, the 4th of October, asking for comments. I haven't heard anything back.

I think the lack of response, says a lot in itself.

Here's a copy of that email, translated to English:

Subject: About contact meeting
To: Justin Smith, <justin.smith@bufetat.no>

Hi Justin.

I don't have a place to [have a call] that is fully private, so I thought I could borrow a room at the family welfare office in Trondheim.

There are a couple of other things I want to talk about:

1. The roles the family welfare office, visit supervisor etc. have

2. Carrying out visits, wishes

3. Extension of visits [time with the kids]

4. Parental responsibility, why can one party refuse to share information, when is this [considered] irresponsible

5. Review of [conflict] history up until today, confidentiality [non-disclosure], the position of moms and dads in family matters [conflicts], the position of the parent the child is living with, in family matters

I think we can say 15 minutes on each point.

I would like 15 minutes alone in the room before and after the meeting, to prepare and round up. I want the meeting to take place circa in the middle of my [scheduled] visits to see the kids, in about 3 weeks.

I will probably want to have more meetings.

I prefer to have meetings towards the end of the [working] day.

I will record the meetings.
