I will be here if needed
I am aware that I shall have to fight for my rights in court. But do you think that the courts shall see it as fair if my wife has to bring the children to Malaga to met me, rather than I having to go to her home town every visit?
I know that if she was living in the UK and we had joint custody then she would have to share the burden and expense of making sure that I saw the kids.
I do not want to spend a small fortune fighting for something that I am very unlikely to get.
Thank you for your honest reply.
I know that I am in for hell being dragged through the Spanish courts.
I just have to decide if it is worth fighting her or if I will be fighting a loosing battle.
Its my children who are suffering along with me and its so unfair.
I have good cause to believe that if I asked for full custody then I may get it on the grounds that she is abusing drugs and with a violent partner.
But my children would never forgive me if I took them away from there mother. And also I do not want to do that to her despite her anger and bitterness towards me.
I will just have to wait and see what she demands in court and then decide if I fight it or not.
Thank you again for your response
