Hi Clare .

She is buing a fly tickets first and than she tells me she is going to Poland to see her family. Already 4 times this year. We agree that i can see my child any time i want but i got only few hours on sundays. She make non molestation order against me becouse i went to her house to see my child just after a week after when she come back from 3 weeks holiday and inform me that my child is seek.(got a food poison) .She never text me back or Phone call when is abroad and i want to know if everythik is ok.

She ask me to pay a 100 per week or i want see my child. She is breaking my name to the family and friends.

Hi there . Am worry that she always choose the time by her self with not asking me aboult my opinion or plans i have about my child over the christmas time or holiday. She always buy the fly tick et first before asking mi for permision.Child has my surname and my name shows on birth certificate so by law my rights should be the same .but in practicly way looks difrent. I do not want to stop her ,i just want make an order that i need to held all information about what she is planning to do. She never phones me . Am scare that in the future anythink can happend and could be to late to avoid. it. I have resone with not trusting her when after one year time been separate she made the order of non molestation , just becouse i come over to see my child when i did call her and send text massages with question about my child condition and when she never responsed. I have feeling that step by step she is tring to take over all the control over my child. In the uk when we both living she only giving me a 3hours peer week to spend with my child . My child showing a clear evidence that miss me i need me. My little girl can hear my voice from meters away and starts running to me and than giving me huge hug and keep holding me. I realy can not understand why her mum can whatch this and keep asking for more money. Just after she made allogation aginst me . I am realy destroyed.

From what you are saying I think what you actually want is to have a Contact Order that sets out when you will see your daughter - and which your ex will have to respect - is that correct?

Hi Clare. Yes ,i think .that will be great option for now. How i can applay strait to the court.

The law says that a child is entitled to regular contact with both parents and the courts will enforce this if necessary.
In addition your ex needs your permission to take the child abroad - and you are entitle d to have full details IN ADVANCE
Your staring point is to try and discuss these issues with your ex using Family mediation ( to see if agreement can be reached - but if that is not successful then you need to apply to the court on a Form C100 available here and seeking a Defined Contact Order.
the fee is £215 and you can read more about court applictaions here
I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
