He is 9yrs old.. At the moment I have him Friday night till Saturday about 3. But speak to him nearly everyday and all he says is he wants to live wiv me.. This is why I thought joint custody would be better.. We have just had 4 days together on holiday and now my wife has book a holiday for him and my stepson but my son says he doesn't want to go because I'm not going.. He phones me a lot crying and I feel helpless and it feels like I'm just walking away from him as I can't do anything
