Hi
Thank you for your question.
My name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you but I need some further information first.
What exactly is it that she wishes to stop?
Clare
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
My daughter is on her own in the marital home Her ex husband and his mother are buying my granddaughter the presents on her wish list before her birthday I know it sounds bizarre but a lot of problems have arisen from that
Expert:  Clare replied 3 years ago.
Hi
I am afraid that there is nothing at all that can be done to stop this - I appreciate that it is spoiling the child but sadly other than discussing with her ex using family mediation how bad it is for the child there is nothing else that can be done
She could of course insist that those toys are kept for contact visits - but that is all
Please ask if you need further details

My daughters Husband whom she is in early divorce procedure with has told her he wants 50/50 pro cent custody for their 4year old daughter .He is the owner of a large IT Company . He would leave child with his mother who has Husband wheelchair bound and other child to look after there will be no dicipline and treats given all the time
My daughter do not agree with such upbringing and wonder what the court would say to this. My daughter does do garden work for clients and can fit that in with child's schooling Looking forward to hear your answer. Kindest Regards Lisa Farrant

No not since they separated about 8 Month ago. She still lives in the Marital home. Just recently has her Husband upped his visiting rights
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Sorry got that wrong. Yes she has
Expert:  Clare replied 3 years ago.
Hi
In what way has he "upped his visiting rights"
Clare
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
He now has her every weekend from Saturday to Monday when my daughter picks her up from Nursery. Also Wednesday over night
Expert:  Clare replied 3 years ago.
Hi
What weekends does your daughter get with her child?
Clare
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Only on special times. When she visits us and as we have just been at my daughters home for my granddaughters Birthday. He has told my daughter he will not pay maintenance
Expert:  Clare replied 3 years ago.
Hi
May I ask why your daughter has agreed to this?
Clare
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
No but he bullies her She lost her Driving license a year ago drink driving after massive row. He is probably trying to get out of having to pay maintenance
Expert:  Clare replied 3 years ago.
Hi
Yes that is exactly what he is doing.
Look to see if there is a local Freedom programme that your daughter can attend
http://www.freedomprogramme.co.uk/
Your daughter is entitled to have weekends with her child as well
Her ex has no right to simply "up his visiting rights" - how the child's time is shared between them is for discussion not dictation
If teh child cannot be with her father most if the time - then she should be with her mother
