Hi thank you for your message, did she not indicate that if you had your son for the weekend she was away then you would need to give up other contact time in exchange?
As opposed to you having your son for the weekend and in addition your regular contact so you have extra time with your son?
Hi thank you for your message well the alternative to the specific issue order above would be to apply to enforce or vary the order. It is the same process which means the court can enforce the order so she cannot take away any of your time (in exchange for your having your son at the weekend) or vary if they feel you should have more contact.

It costs £215. The court will look at the facts again to see if anything has changed.
Depending on your situation and what you’ve asked the court to decide they might make: an ‘enforcement order’ - this means the ex-partner has to do between 40 and 200 hours of unpaid work, an ‘order for compensation for financial loss’ - this means the ex-partner has to pay back any money you’ve lost because they did not follow the order. You can go back to the court if the ex-partner still does not do as the court ordered. You can also ask the court to vary the order.
