My partner (the childs mother) constantly asks her ex (childs father for information as to when he will be seeing his son (collection and return times etc) he will not reply or answer these requests. The fathers parents (grandparents)have informed my partner they (and the father) will be taking the child on holiday for a few day this weekend. Again my partner has attempted on several occasion this am to find out where, when,how long for and collection and return times as to be able to provide suitable clothing etc. Having noted he has been "on-line" to others this am he STILL refuses to reply. We provided a detailed calender for him covering the whole of July & August indicating where and when we would be taking the child on holiday and asking the father to insert the days he would be wishing to see his son or take him in holiday. It was returned blank apart from the dates supplied by ourselves Where do we stand legally with this difficult situation as this is ongoing and makes planning for ourselves almost impossible.
An urgent reply would be appreciated
The child is seven (7) rears old. The contact is every Wednesday after school 4.00pm to 7.00pm with grandparents, Sunday 10.00 am to 7.00pm with his father. Child and ourselves often kept waiting for father to collect him on Sundays, father seldom adheres to agreed times for return on Wednesdays or Sundays making it almost impossible to make any arrangements for ourselves.
Father has made no attempt to see the child on any additional occasion throughout the school 6 week holiday period, expecting ourselves to look after the child and take time off work to do so. We have taken the child on three separate vacations, the father has made no attempt to take the child anywhere.
There are no court orders in place.
Sorry cannot really recall that information, perhaps we should have kept a record.
6-7 times anything up to 11/2 hrs.
Yes. The issue is with the father not either set of grandparents. He makes no attempt to reply to any communication from my partner regarding holidays days out etc. He has constantly told the child he is taking him on holiday but refuses to reply to requests for information.
