you need to make arrangements order regarding your daughter
You and your ex-partner can avoid going to court hearings if you mutually agree on:
where the child will live
how much time he’ll spend with each parent
If you both are not agreeing on the child arrangement conditions, you can go for a mediation service to get help in preparing to make arrangements and reaching an agreement with your Ex- partner.
So, if you and your partner do not agree on where the children live, their custody & contact, and financial support you can take the help of a mediator, local citizen Advice Bureau.
If you are not able to reach an agreement mutually or with the help of a mediator, you can apply to the court to decide and make a child arrangement order.
However, You must show you’ve attended a meeting to see if mediation is right for you before applying to a court.
You can approach your local council /citizen advice bureau , most of them have family mediation services.

Court will not force a contact arrangement upon you, if you have irregular working shifts or can not visit on weekdays.
The ideal situation is of course to be able to communicate with the other parent and to be flexible with your work schedule. It is important to be able to negotiate arrangements frequently and as often as is necessary depending your availability and work schedules.
Again, If you find it too difficult to make arrangements direct, mediation is an excellent way of discussing options and coming up with an agreement which works for everyone.
