Ask a Family Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, my name is*****'m a barrister and here to assist.
I would suggest that, whilst you do not have to take your daughter for contact tomorrow, as the order is for contact with her father, not her grandparents, that if this is a one off due to the new job there would be nothing harmful for your daughter in you taking her for contact with her grandparents in lieu, on the proviso that this doesn't happen again. If it is going to be a regular occurrence, then you should apply to amend the order as he is not able to fulfil his side of the agreement and ultimately it is your daughter who will suffer.
Despite my advice about this week, in the long term, contact is for him, not his parents.
I would get back to court before the overnights are due to happen, as there is no benefit to your daughter to be going to see her father when he is not actually physically there.
Yes, exactly that.
I think in the circumstances that might be the fairest approach.
No problem, my pleasure, I'd appreciate you accepting my response and providing a positive rating so I can be credited with assisting you this evening.
