I have just received another lawyer's letter today regarding extended contact and my ex is requesting the following:-
2 weeks in the Summer holidays
1 week at Easter or October
Christmas Day (alternating between us each year)
1 week during Christmas holidays
The occasional long weekend for occasions such as a wedding or other family celebration
He currently gets his daughter every 2nd weekend, every Wednesday until 7pm, 2 weeks during the Summer and Christmas Day from 10am until 1pm and from 26th December to 27th December at 5pm. My other daughter (who has a different father) also goes away with her dad at these times.
His lawyer wants to draw up a legal agreement for the above.
What I would like to know is do I have to agree to this? If I don't then can he take me to court? Would this actually go to court because he already has regular contact?
I am finding this very difficult because I was left on my own from before she was born and now she is 3 years old, nearly 4, and now that he has left the army, he is all of a sudden asking for all the additional contact. I am now married and settled and my 2 daughters are very close to their stepdad. I am wondering if this has something to do with it, the fact that their stepdad spends more time and does more than he does.
I look forward to hearing from you and appreciate all your help in this matter.
