Thank you for your question.

He is talking nonsense. He has parental rights because he is named on the birth certificate. That doesn't automatically entitle him to three and a half days a week. It doesn't work that way.

Your daughter is presumably the parent with care therefore the child resides with her. He is entitled to contact to the child at such times and place as is deemed to be in the child's best interests. That is rarely half of the time given the upheaval for the child. There is no normal or legal amount of time; it depends what is in the best interests of the child. Frankly, is view of it is simplistic and naive.

I hope this helps. Please leave a positive response so that I am credited for my time.
