My children are 11,9,and 8 I speak to them on the phone the wife has said Thursday and Sunday but this is often not done with the excuse poor signal or on holiday followed by tough when I complain. I asked to have the children for a week of the holidays this was refused and I had to go to Devon and see them staying in a hotel and only being allowed to have them when she said 9am till 1800 .The agreement was I could talk to them on the phone and see them as often as I wished within reason.
To add to this the financial agreement is not offering me the safety I asked for this is why I am going for part custody to hopefully protect me from her taking further monies.
My wife told me on the 26 of May that she did not like me anymore after she did something on the evening of the 25 of May which caused an argument. I returned home to the family home to avoid any further bad feelings and let the children and her continue the holiday. I returned at the end of the holiday intending to pick them all up however on my arrival I was informed she had sent the children back with her parents earlier that morning and that she would be travelling back with another friend so I took the caravan home. She refused to bring the children home after several days we spoke and I agreed to move to my parents so she and the children could move back into the family home. I had the children from the 18/22 between the hrs of 9 am and 1800.
I had the children as I am retired and my wife worked.
She worked full time but since the split she has reduced her hrs to just enable her family tax credits .
We own 3 properties the family house and 2 bungalows one her parents occupy and one rented. Then we have some savings .
Yes I can have one of the bungalows to live in
