Hi, thanks for your question. How old is the child and what are the arrangements?
Thank you for your question

Your ex cannot simply change the existing arrangements since they are the subject of an Order which you can apply to enforce if need be.
If she wishes to change then then there does have to be an attempt at mediation and then an applictaion for a new Child Arrangement Order.
Equally if you wish to change the arrangements the same applies
There are no longer residence orders - they are called "child arrangements orders'
There is no point in getting CCTV footage.
It is accepted that many children who are genuinely distressed at handovers settle swiftly afterwards - so neither the evidence of distress nor the evidence that he is happy have any great relevance
If you would still like a phone call then I will send the request - but please be aware that the site charges extra for the service
Please ask if you nave any further details
In so far as you cannot simply go to her house and remove the child from her then yes realistically she can stop the contact.
If she does that then your option is to go to court to enforce the order.
Actually given all the matters that your have mentioned your ex could find herself in some difficulty if it comes to court - and the outcome could be an increase
not a decrease in contact given the evidence that she is trying to create problems.
If the matter does go to court a letter from the school saying they have no concerns would be excellent - but it would be unfair to ask them to go further than that
A court cannot order her to have counselling - but you can certainly ask for it when you are at mediation
