daughter is 6, 7 in december
her ex has asked for every weds and every Saturday per month.
mediation letter has been received but not made apt yet.
he wants to have daughter delivered to him at 1600 on weds and will drop her at school following day..Saturday again he wishes to have child delivered at 1600 and will return her at 1800 following day.
my partner works nights on a rota as she works as a nurse in the out of hours gp service and this request could lead to child being out of her family home for potentially 5 nights a week.
the old agreement was that there was a degree of interaction with regard to her rota to assist with childcare and provide greater amount of contact, agreement allows for 10 nights a month
Week 1 weekend: Sunday 10-4.
Week 2 Weekend: my partner has little girl
Week 3 weekend: 10am Saturday to 4pm Sunday.
Week 4 Weekend: my partner has little girl.
the access would be as per the original agreement allowing him 10 days/nights a month.
she is willing to be flexible and if a set night could be agreed mutually then there is a possibility that my partner could agree a set night at work to allow for this.
its a possibility but the concern is that he does not give her decent meals and that she stays at his new partners house,where there is no bed for her to stay in she has been forced to sleep on an airbed in the lounge,obviously this is not ideal over a prolongued time, also there is an issue around the provision of proper nutritious meals.
Thank you very much for the information you have given me, we are very concerned that this will be a very costly process as the ex gets legal aid to support his action where as we are required to pay for all of the various steps in the process! We hope to try to settle this issue without the need to go to court!
no legal aid even though he is on long term sick due to his previous illness?
