Our eldest son's relationship has broken down ie engagement broken off and his ex fiancee has returned with their son to her parents. There were difficulties/faults on both sides and our son fully recognises his failing. However, his ex is now stipulating how much access he has to his son, what money is owed for items purchased for the house ( no receipts). He also contribute £1500 towards her credit debt, although there is no online proof of this transaction. She also created an unexpected meeting involving, him, his ex-fiance and her mother where they dictated what he had to pay back and wouldn't acknowledge money he had invested for her, and their son's general well being. Can she dictate, on a whim .or what legal rights does he have for access, monetary recompensation,etc from her? And can she keep moving the goal posts, or should we put what has been agreed in writing? The house is in my son's name only, and as a couple, they lived in the house together for 10 weeks
Our son is 28yrs old, his son is 5yrs old. he's been offered 2 days access but there's no fixed days, mark has to request week on week days he may have time for his son. Both before and since the breakup Mark has held down 2 jobs to help with the mortgage and provide for his family, this provides a challenge now to juggle job demands and free up time for his son. Ursula seems to be determined to make sure life is as difficult as possible for Mark, even destroy him??.
Items she claims to have purchased or have been gifted by her family are window blinds £400, sitting room furniture, child's bedrooom furniture, towels, bed duvet and pillows, ornaments, total value £472.Overall total is £872.
Unfortunately, Mark allowed Ursula to use his Visa card and there is no proof of what was bought by his or her money, and she claims she doesnt have the receipts, but she knows the value?
She wants to take all the items detailed in previous statement:
Items she claims to have purchased or have been gifted by her family are window blinds £400, sitting room furniture, child's bedrooom furniture, towels, bed duvet and pillows, ornaments, total value £472.Overall total is £872.Mark checked his online bank a/c and large sums of money have been spent at the likes of Ikea, M&S et, but receipts are not available to Mark to prove his ex partner's claim.We are concerned that if Markwe pay this amount, there won't be more claims, almost like 'blackmail'?
He would like2 days min/week, occassionally 3 days /week when he can organise free time from his employment(s).
He also wants to still take him on a planned 2 week holiday in August with all of our family.
Mark is named as 'father' on his son's birth certificate, however, we understand that the mother would have to give written permission for this holiday!?
