My husband and I are having a trial separation at the moment. There is no custody agreement in place but my husband and I ave decided that I will have the children 4 days per week and he will have them 3 ays per week. The children are 2 and 4. My husband travels a lot for business and I have asked to have the children while he is travelling. My husband has advised that he has custody of the children at that time and he wants to leave them with his parents. I am not comfortable with my kids staying with his parents. Not because they aren't lovely people, which they are but because they have never had both he children at the same time and my daughter (who is 2) has never been looked after by them for more than 3 hours (and that has only happened twice in her lifetime). Do I have any rights in regards ***** ***** that the children stay with me while he is away travelling? This puts me out considerable as it impacts on my ability to work and I am also studying a Masters degree but I believe the children need to be with thier mum or dad at this time.
