hi Claire, the children are 11 and 7,
I currently work a 12hr 4 shift pattern including weekends, the pattern has a 4 week cycle so I have the children an average of 2 nights (stay over) a week, this works around my days off.
there was no separate court case regarding children, we came to an agreement on the rota which I thought was passed by the judge when divorce agreed.
I currently pay £134 per week maintenance, I have worked out via csa calculator that I should only be paying £116 but have left it at £134 since separating approx. 17 months ago.
my ex wife has been trying to add more time days to my rota and change it as she sees fit, I have rejected these changes as at the moment I have only 5 free days (when not working or with kids) per 4 week cycle and have little or no leeway to make these changes, because of this she threatened to stop me seeing them altogether ( tho I have never missed a payment or failed to have the children as per my rota).
I just wanted to my rights and where I stand with this. thx
