Thank you, ***** ***** named on the birth certificate but the child is named under mother's name and not with the father's last name.
Their son has been living with his dad on and off for 7 months (as the parents have never lived together) Their pattern of contact has always been good - however their relationship was on and off and since she ended the relationship around the 26th/27th March has been by phone message (text) unless he was meeting her. Frequency since they split communication was morning and evenings everyday - before that they would communicate throughout the day.
If it was about them the frequency was more than normal but about their son always mornings and evenings
Only some normal conversations others quite nasty and name calling and angry at him - then refusing to talk or take any messages - then she would come around the next day let the little boy's schedule go back to normal then few days later she would start again saying father cannot have him distance is too far, and manipulating the situation. The dad went up on Sunday to N.Ireland to see his son as the mother was away and the grandparents left him to spend time with him while they went off to play golf all was well - but as soon as mother returned she requested father with less than a days notice to come up next day and take him to the beach - when the dad explained he couldn't and that such short notice requests for a 2.5hour drive is no realistic she proceeded to say he could not have him down to him home in ROI anymore journey is too long, she refused to send him any pictures of the boy and now has written - on Wed 8th April - As of today u will not contact me by phone/social media or any other form of communication. If you have any queries regarding their son you can contact my dad. I'm sorry that it has come to this but you have upset us all and son is my responsibility and him going to ROI is not an option at this stage. If you want a formal meeting u can arrange it through my father.
The schedule was strained from time of birth as after 2.5 years it was recognized that relationship was in trouble and not working - the mom fell pregnant and they tried to make it work and as a result of the strain the dad was up and down the road to them at least 3 times a week and then would collect and take mom and son to his home place and where they would reside or stay for number of days and then also stayed for at least a min period of 14 days; and down over the Christmas period; however, due to her relations with her parents her time was always in question and would always return to her home place with their son.
