My name is ***** *****. My ex wife and I have a shared care
My ex wife and I have a shared care order which was agreed last year after she began to withdraw contact over personal and financial matters. Since we separated, we have both found new partners. She lives with her partner and has a new child. I live alone apart from when the children are living with me as per the order. My new partner (2 years standing) lives 3 hrs away and when it is possible, we share our time with our respewctive children. Her daughter is age 8 and my two children are 9 & 10 respectively.

My ex is claiming she has the right to meet her and has said that if I don't facilitate this, she will find a way to contact her directly to try to arrange this. What would you recommend under the circumstances? Thank you … read more
