Good Afternoon Clare,
our Grandaughter is 16months old, it was our sons girlfriend who ended their relationship and she moved back to her mums, our son had to sell their flat and they split the profits, this sale completed on
up until the sale our son had his daughter every weekend and any free days off he had during the week, now his ex is saying that he can only have every other weekend, and yesterday she phoned him and said that if he gets a solicitor involved then he will never see his daughter again.
naturally this is a serious and hurtful comment and our son in seriously concerned, we would be grateful for any advice.
she has said that our son works to many weekends at work, on the weekends that my son does work then my inlaws look after their great grandaughter until he returns.
our son has his own room at my inlaws property and he has moved in there now that he has sold his flat, i must add that my inlaws are very healthy and still both play sports and love having my grandaughter.
i have just spoken to my son and he doesnt work Sundays, and he only works 1 Saturday a month, very occasionally it may be 2 but that is very occasionally.
the mother works part time for Tesco, i believe her new arrangement is every other weekend and maybe 1 day in the other week which he hasnt got his daughter.
at present its every weekend and whatever his day off is in the week, so her plans are to halve that.
thank you for you replies, with regards ***** ***** ex girlfriends threats that she will stop our son seeing daughter again is this something that she could enforce, does the current system still allow these things to happen ?
i ask this as i know my Cousin went throw a torrid time with his ex wife about 10 years where she constantly stopped access and he was always in Court having it granted only for her to stop it again weeks later.
the system back then seemed extremely flaud with not alot of hope for the fathers.
