Thank you for your question. I am a solicitor in Scotland. I will give you some initial comments but you will have to see a family solicitor of your own so that you can have a reply to the letter sent. As regards ***** ***** is no procedure whereby a non resident parent can be forced to have more contact with his children as opposed to less. If he is refusing to take them to the same degree as before then he cannot be forced to do so other than to say that sometimes the knock on effect of that is that he might have to pay more child maintenance. Again he has indicated his desire to have the amount reviewed by the child maintenance service. That is his right notwithstanding you have a written agreement with him. Once the child maintenance service get in touch with you, you should give them a copy of the agreement and also tell them that he is seeking to have less contact with the children. You should give the maintenance service a copy of the letter you have received from his solicitor. Happy to discuss further. I hope that helps. Please leave a positive rating so that I am credited for my time.
No you don’t have to agree but you can’t force him to take more contact that’s he wishes and neither can a court. That is what makes it very difficult. However the less he sees the children the more he will have to pay in child maintenance.
