My daughters partner walked out on her and their three children about eight months ago. Since then he has continually refused to pay towards their upkeep. My daughter is now on income support. He has had access to the children but always wants my daughter to take them to him. Again paying nothing for transport etc. Whenever they meet he invariably ends up shoving her, my daughter is now worried that their next meeting will end up with arguing again and so she has told her ex partner that when he wants to see the children he can pick them up and return them to my house, which he is not happy about. My daughter is not refusing him access just asking him to pick them up and return them to me. Is this enforceable or can he demand his own terms.
My house is midway between my daughter and her ex partner and so should be an ideal point for drop off and pickup.
