what if i applied to the court for joint custody
so basically he can still dictate my life
he is a good parent and he loves his kids but since he has been with his new partner it has all changed
and i and his family believe it is his new partner that is asking him to make these changes
so there is nothing that i can do by law to make him see his children
would his new partner need to be involved in this as it is her house they stay in every other weekend
this is the trouble i am having as i am sure it is her that is lowering his time spent with the children
so other than a mediation there is not much i can do ?
ok thank you
sorry just quickly is it correct that if i stop is access altogether he can apply to the court for access
i wasn't really happy with the answers, as there father (down as such on birth cert a legal documant) there must be something the law can do. not just if he doesnt want to he doesnt have to.
