Hi Clare,the final order is attached with CAFCASS;
the question is this: why I can not look after my daughter when her mom is working despite the fact the court order? Saturday night my daughter send time with her grandma and no with me; also the magistrate did not take in account the CAFCASS report witch was very good report

This Order was only made recently and you are currently building up to your daughter spending alternate saturday nights with you.

This will start in the New Year.

This is designed to increase at a pace that is right for your daughter.

Your daughter is used to spending Saturday nights with her grandmother - and any changes need to go slowly.

If matters go well next year then after the holiday in Italy in July you can start discussions again - but remember her mother is entitled to weekend time with the child during the days on her weekend - even if she is working.

You have achieved an excellent order - next year you can see if you can add a Friday night to make it a full weekend when you have her
