I requested mediation with my ex regarding sharing

This answer was rated:

I requested mediation with my ex regarding sharing responsibility of driving for pickups and drop offs of our daughter who is 9 (we have been split up for 9 years). She has covered ‘some’ of this previously and has now moved further away and is with someone. She flat out refuses to do ANY of this despite a 90 min round trip I will need to make 3 times per week, citing she dies the weekly driving. I’m considering next step-court given she flat out refuses to any negotiation.I can’t afford a solicitor... what is the likely outcome? Is it a toss up of outcomes depending on the judge? She is difficult to deal with, wants everything in her terms.Help please?!

Let me see if I can help and please rate 5 stars. The court would normally expect travel to be a joint responsibility - so would expect it to be shared. If she will not agree then you should consider making an application to the court for a child arrangements order on form C100 - you can do this without a solicitor and I have attached a link to a great book which should help - https://www.amazon.co.uk/Represent-Yourself-Family-Court-understanding/dp/147211910X

Please rate 5 stars

My pleasure.

Very helpful-and thanks for the book tip. Now ordered! Have tried to avoid this route but it is to ensure I get to have more quality time with my daughter, so fingers crossed!
