How old are the children?
13, 10 and 5
If she wont agree to mediation (which will hopefully talk some sense into her), you have no option but court.
It wouldnt be un reasonable to have overnight staying contact every other weekend, and either regular days in the week contact or an overnight in the week subject to school routine of course.
has she got any rights to stop the children from seeing there grandmother is they want to.
the children are 13, 10 and 5 and the only reason we cant have the children Friday night is because my partner works nights he was having the children on his weekend over 2 nights a week saterday night and sunday night but his ex wife stopped that.
no there is no reason she has just become awkward as the children have resumed contact with there fathers mother and as she fell out with my partners mother many years ago she now is giving my partnere minamum contact
So basocally she is just being awkward?
What was the issue about some years ago between her and the children's grandmother?
What do you mean by if she hasn't arrainged something etc?
it was a disagreement over if my partner was home or not and my was genuinely out and his mother all she asked via a phone call was my partners ex wife just saying he wasn't there to be awkward and she didn't like that and so that is why they fell out. Also my partners ex wife is into her horses and is very pushie with the children so she arrainges to go to shows and for them to go to lessons or go out visiting horsie friends during my partners time and on his weekends. My partner hasn't got an issue with the children riding etc but it is always planed for all the events to happen on his time and not on hers. On her weekends the children spend all there time with her mother and father which is her choice but she doesn't see why my partner should have a problem with her arrainging things for the children in his time.
Thank you. I just wanted to make sure that thedisagreement had nothing to do with the children, which clearly, it doesn't
It would be as well to get contact either agreed betweenthem or set out in a court order to provide certainty for the X and yourpartner and more importantly, for the children so that they know who they aregoing to be with and when.
That way, your partner and his ex-can arrange things forthe children.
If, however, they cannot agree things between them, thecourt will make a decision and it is likely to be based more on what wasoriginally agreed them what she is now offering
