Thank you for clarifying that for me.
It is the position of the family courts that it a child right to have a good relationship with both of their parents unless there are child protection concerns. Going on holiday as a couple is not such a reason and appears to be more one of jealousy by the mother, especially given the length of time that the current routine has been in place.
If the mother does decide to follow through with such threats then your partner needs to make an appication to the family court for a child arrangement order. This is an order that stipulates the time that Ashton gets to spend with his dad.
The first step you would need to take is to refer to family mediation. If you do not do this then the court will reject the application.
There are lots of family mediation services and there will be one local to you. Just google family mediation in your area and give them a call to get the ball roling.
If mediation doesnt reach agreement - or the mother wont engage - then the mediator will sign the family that you need to apply to court.
The Form is the C100. There is a court fee payable of £215 at the start of the application - then no other court fees.
The current routine is not unreasonable and a court would likely order in line with this.
It is worth letting the mother know that you will take this course of action if she decides to be difficult.
let me know if I can help you further.
