what contact does your son want
as his ex who is actually moving back here today only lives a couple of streets away my son obviously would like to have him as much as possible. every weekend sat morning till sunday evenin and maybe one night through the week. forever would be nice as my grandson keeps sayin but we know that wont happen. please advise.
every weekend is unlikely as in general terms the court likes both parents to have a complete weekend with the child
a more realistic request would be for alternate weekends friday to sunday plus one night in the week and half the school holidays
your son can get help support and advice from families need fathers (www.fnf.org.uk)
thankyou that sounds great will he have to see a solicitor to enforce this in writing or is it the law, cause i cant see her agreeing to what youve suggested likely, unless my son has some sort of back up.
the law says that the child is entitled to regular personal contact with both parents but the extent of the contact is dependant on the needs of the child itself
