As a father, sigh, I am not sure. I don't know who the order says the children live with, but given when we made the agreement (and I had competent counsel) 9 years ago I did not pay attention to who the order says the child lives with.
We have an arrangement order (whatever the legal term is for a court-approved custodial arrangement is) that provides for the children to be with me every Thursday until Friday morning (during school) and every other weekend i.e. they come back from school Friday evening and go back to school Monday morning - every other weekend.
So let me just emphasise, on a Thursday school night, every week, they come to me after school and go to school from my residence Friday morning.
We split vacations 50/50. In this case, the kids come to me Thursday 22/5 and then I have them for 1/2 of their mid-term holiday.
As a one-off, I want to go to a special family event with Tom (14 1/2 year old son) and he will return Tuesday morning (during the school mid-term vacation which I am meant to have with him anyway). I currently have his UK passport.
The divorce agreement has been in place for almost 10 years. There have been no particular problems since negotiating the arrangement 10 years ago.
The other child is 17 years old and not part of the travel plans - another sigh studying for AS's, but she is ok, no difficulties there.
You are not a barrister by any chance? (I understand if you can't answer, but we did have some help from a barrister named Clare in the beginning).
