This is not an instantservice so sometimes you will get a response in minutes and sometimes it willbe hours, or even overnight. We all have clients and court and other users andtravelling and weekends and evenings and misc interruptions etc. in addition,we are lawyers, not typists and some of us can't type that fast!
We will get back when we are online which is on and off all of every day usuallyHow old is your daughter? Will he agree?
Can we have full background please?
My daughter turned 10 this January. She never talks about him, or asks to see him.
My Ex has never put my daughter first. He would take pleasure in making my life more difficult. That is more important to him than understanding the difficult situation I now find myself in. He would also say its not possible for him to have my daughter whilst I work away which could be anything from 3 days to 9. But then my daughter refuses to stay over at his house as he lives in his sisters back bedroom with no extra room for my daughter. Again, not an option.
Background? my divorce came after fifteen years of having a husband who relied on me to provide financially whilst he did nothing. He is agrieved I still live a comfortable life, one which I have taken away from him. He would be happy to make me lose my job even at the expense of his daughters wellbeing. Hope this covers yr questions, I'm sure youl realise there is a whole lot more than is possible to put in type. I was also registered with the police domestic violence department directly after my divorce following harrassment,intimidation and threats.
As per my previous post. They have had limited contact during the last 6 years. They did have a run of seeing each other every Sunday this was about 2 years ago and it lasted about 10 months. He has not seen my daughter since Dec 2011 (14 months) . I have never stopped him seeing his daughter, indeed I have encouraged contact to inc every other wk end. This, my daughter did not want and it seems nor did he otherwise he would be pestering for contact.
As I said before if I thought I could ask him and be amicable then I would not be taking legal advice. He would say No as he still would take pleasure in controlling my life. My daughters wellfare is paramount. I am afraid of the fact I may have to give up a very good job in order to look after her full time, this would greatly affect her standard of living as everything would need to be downgraded, house etc assuming I get another job! I suppose I am asking am I eligible to get sole custody, or are there any other ways? Thank you
Have you read my initial post which went to Law Denning.? It does explain that I work as cabin crew and will be able to commute from Cyprus. I work one month on and one month off.
My mother wishes to relocate to Cyprus in order to look after her sister. I hope we can manage under the circumstances so I can keep my daughter in school until she finishes Primary School next July. This wd be less upheaval for my daughter and a good time for her to enter secondary school next Sept.
As a short term plan my mother will fly back and forth when I need her to look after my daughter. Not an ideal situation, hence my need to relocate also.
Thanku very much Claire.
That puts a much clearer light on things.
Just one last question. Would I be able to apply for sole custody under the circumstances? if successful would that solve my problem. I was recommended to apply for this 6 yrs ago but did not want to put my daughter through the stress of CAFCAS.
Many thanks and goodby
