Thank you for your answer.It's good to know that he needs to be paying something even if he is unemployed.In regards XXXXX XXXXX interest in our son's everyday well-being - with our current arrangement he has him every second week from Friday evening to Sunday afternoon. When I drop my son off on the Friday my ex-partner is hardly ever there, so I have to leave my son with his grandmother which I am not happy with. Do I have the right to refuse to leave my son at the house unless his father is there?
Considering my ex-partner put up such a fight to have visitation rights I expect him to be there for the whole time my son is in his care.
That's very good to know. I do have concerns about the grandmother after seeing and hearing how she has brought up her own children, which has been reflected in my ex-partner actually.
My son is 5 years old. We have had the custody agreement in place for 2 years now. It was a very long process due to violence issues with my ex-partner
