Customer Question

I just recently split up with my girlfriend and as a result of that I have moved back into my parents house a 3 bed with my mum dad and brother I have suggested to my ex that I can have the children on a regular basis 2 during the week (not overnight due to work) Wed 1630-2030 and Fri 1630-2030 and every other weekend she agreed to a certain extent I wanted to have one child on the Friday then the other child on the sat night this is due to I don't think its a practical having two kids staying over at my parents from fri to sun (like she has suggested) in the little box room that I stay in its barely big enough for me never mind a 5yr old and 18mth old now she is talking about going to the solicitors to make me have the children on those set days during the week and every other weekend for both of them Friday till sunday which I wouldn't mind either if I had my own place but I don't yet and until I do I felt that what I suggested was appropriate so if u could let me know that in the event of her going to the solicitors I have a rough idea of what's going to be said thanks Kane

Thank you for your question.
My name is Clare and I will do my best to help you but I need some further information first.
When do you think you will find your own property?
Why does she wish the children to be overcrowded in this way?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Not sure i think she is struggling to have the kids on her own constantly every weekend and demands me having them so she can have a break n go out and what not i dont know wen i mite have my own place as of yet but hopefully sooner rather than later because living back with ur parents is not ideal haha
