The normal contact rhythm is effectively 1/3rd of a year, Every other weekend, every week a weekday overnight and half the holidays with me. Morven has stopped it 7 times. Without just cause. Once because i couldn't pick up at the scheduled time as i'd locked myself out of my flat...
In January we had a disagrement about contact. A small argument. Morven informed me i could only see Jacob supervised in a contact centre. This was before I had decided to go to court. The police and Social Services are not involved. There are no safety issues.
I think she will agree principaly because she is used to a significant amount of time off with the amount of time i took Jake. She needs this and has been looking after Jake on her own for 5 and a bit months. Jacob is probably stating to her - as he does to me - he wants to come to my house again.
she has intimated she would allow it. i have mooted it in e-mails, she has asked for suggestions.
She is a good person, unfortunately she uses her power to withdraw contact as a weapon from time to time. As i gather, this is quite common. Jacob is mostly unaffected. He seems relaxed in himself, is doing well in school. I've applied to court to get the previous contact rhythm upheld by the court. For stability, for Jake.
