Thank you for your all your messages.  The father still has contact and sadly I have to be tactical and not go the court route because He will be difficult and unhelpful with looking after his own children to spite me.  He collects the girls after school on Friday so that I can either have a free day to myself or work as a private carer on a flexible basis.  I work during the week and I collect the girls from my mum.  If I jeopardise this he will not be helpful.  It’s a legacy of manipulation and I have to keep on his good side otherwise it’s difficult for child care.  I am going to open up a case with CMS as suggested so that its recorded.  He has no benefits as fell off his bike dislocated his shoulder and waiting for a tribunal because his ESA was stopped.. he told me this coud take up to 6 months to 12 months.  He is with a new partner and expecting a child in December.
