HI
Why does he think that he is entitled to have him more often?
Clare
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

i've told him i want to be separated as i cant afford devoice but he said it be wife or devoice that's it, no separation. hes trying anything to get me back but i don't want too. He keeps saying im a bad mother and if i cant make the right answer then how can i keep my son safe. Thats why i need to find out if he can get full custody of my son.

Hi
Then you are entitled to apply for a divorce base don his Unreasonable Behaviour - you are entitled to fee remission so you will not need to pay any court fees.

Given the history of grooming there is no basis on which your ex will be able to take over the care of the child from you.
I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
