Thank you for your question

It would be more appropriate to agree a Parenting Plan such as this one
which is more reflective of the actual needs of a child.
However whatever it is called it is still not enforceable - only a court order is enforceable - and your ex will only be able to use this as a reflection of what you have agreed - not what the future must be
Please ask if you need further details
What are the current contact arrangements
Why do you intend to move?
How old is the child - and what is the actual pattern of contact?
What will happen when the child goes to school
When did you separate - and what has happened until now?
May I ask why you have agreed this new pattern - what is the benefit for the child?
When he has him for the whole weekend is Dad actually there then?
How did the new proposal come about?
And do you think this will suit your child?
What has been the actual pattern up until now?
SO quite a big jump - and one which means he only has a minimal liability for child maintenance.
It is also one which could indeed make it difficult for you to move in the future since such a shared care arrangement will make it easier for him to apply for an order
preventing any move - and of course for insisting that Nursery and primary schools should be in your current area.
I would think hard before agreeing to this as it does seem very disruptive for a very young child.
At this stage stability and security are key and to be honest it is not clear that this has been the focus of the negotiations (or demands!)
I suggest that you make it clear that he can certainly have Friday to Monday overnight on alternate weekends, and every wednesday night - but even that ha sto be agreed as part of a Parenting plan which includes discussions about school and moving.
Yes - that is exactly what you should do
Nonsense - you can take the child to a christening if you wish to do so
No - just laugh the next time he says he will see a solicitor and say he is welcome to do so but he will be told he has to attend mediation to discuss a parenting plan - which you are happy to do
