He has him every other weekend & every wednesday, but he sees him more often than that as I currently live around the corner I have always made the effort to drop my son in or agree if he asks if he can have him an extra night. I have always encouraged contact with his father as think it is important and never stopped contact even if me and his father have fallen out. I would continue to make an effort for them to see each other if we moved house for my son, but I am terribly unhappy where we are living as am only in the area as the father asked me to stay.
I have offered for him to have him every other full weekend (Friday to Sunday eve) we will do one way journey and he will do the other, and then offered for him to see him the weekends in between also if he wanted too by mutual arrangement (if he wanted to have sat & sun for example) and share half of all holidays. Me and my new partner have both said he is also welcome at anytime to come to our house. Or come to our house and take he out etc even if it is during the week. We have basically said he can see him at any time & would put it in writing if needs be.
Also can I ask while you are here, if he were to go for half custody (if we were still living near him) and I wasn't happy with that, would he get it? or is every other weekend and every Wednesday acceptable?
He already does have the Sunday night, Thank you
