He said he wants 3 days one week and four days the next.
When access was agreed for father number one and we went to court he did not request a full weekend with child number one. The access was similar before we went to court as he had the same days on a tues/wed but every week he had 12pm Fri until 12 pm Sat. The court order changed this to the alternate weekend access that is in place now. This court order came into place in December 2012.
This seems like quite a lot - as when will both children see each other? They are really close and when either child is in the house without the other they constantly ask for each other. I work full time (Mon - Fri) so the children go to breakfast club and nursery - we leave the house at 7.15am and I pick them up by approximately 5.30pm. Father number 2 works alternate Friday and Saturdays - therefore Father number 1 swapped his weeks so that it would coinside with Father number 2's weeks - so that the Friday and Saturday access would be the same.
Would it not be better to do the weekend when father number two would have him Saturday morning until Sunday morning - to have first thing Saturday morning until 5 or 6pm on Sunday night but every fourth week - so his brother can still see him on the Friday - and me. As your question would mean father number two would get a full weekend every other week, or even one in four - and I would never have a full weekend?
