My situation is I am a father of two children myself and their mother spilt up 5 years ago and we have managed to come to a private agreement concerning custody of the children, she has them in the week and I have them 3 out of 4 weekends. Recently she has become unhappy with this agreement so I would like to know how much in legal fee's will it cost me if I was to apply to the court for joint custody or shared residence.
I hope this is a little more clear.
They are both 8 and she wants them on 2 weekends at the moment but I'm sure she will want to change that again at some point. I am unable to have the children in the week due to working hours and location.
We split the holiday's between us, I mostly have them over half terms and we rotate the weeks over the summer.
Well I would like to keep our current agreement or maybe even extend it so I would have my children every weekend instead of 3 weekends if there were chances the court would allow that.
I currently have them Friday to Sunday, I could take them to school Monday mornings also so yes Monday would be fine.
As for two weekends out of three I wouldn't be able to accept that as I know other fathers who have them every weekend.
I work evenings and i would have to take public transport to pick them up, it takes a hour and a half to pick them up on a good day.
