Hello Clare. Thank you for your response. Here is the information you asked for:
The children are with their Dad on Mondays and Tuesdays and with me on Wednesdays and Thursdays. The weekends are spend alternately between their Dad and me. Over a two week period, they split their time evenly between the two of us. We alternate Christmas and usually agree other holidays before we book them.
The girls appear to be quite scared of their Dad. I'm sure he would never be physical towards them, but he is extremely controlling and the girls get very nervous if they get anything wrong or do anything he doesn't like. They both have Type 1 Diabetes and apparently he gets annoyed if their blood levels are too high. This also makes them very nervous, but it is virtually impossible to keep their levels even, particularly at this stage of their lives. Our Diabetic nurse has spoken to him, but apparently he does not respond. The girls cry regularly and send me texts when they are with their Dad saying they wish they could live with me all the time. I see this as a potentially explosive situation, as I'm sure their Dad will not be pleased if they are allowed to live with me.
I hope this is enough information. I look forward to hearing from you further. Thank you.
We haven't discussed that sort of detail yet. I presume they will still want to see him, but less often - something like every other weekend. And probably holidays.
I believe they will be, as long as I am there for moral support. I will not speak for them as I think that would be counterproductive.
