#32862 Report


I share my boys almost 50 / 50 with their mother. She is a teacher so I agreed initially that it made sense for her to have them a bit more over school holidays. She is using this as a way to receive child maintenance even though I have expressed a preference (and I am able) to share access completely 50 / 50.  I am already giving her 1,000 a month in spousal maintenance.

From my (admittedly limited) experience yours is a common story. It’s also common for fathers to want to be just as involved as mothers. What is not as common is the fathers’ willingness to talk about it all on the internet.

For me it has been easier to just accept it all and focus on caring for my boys above all else.  Not great advice, but I felt compelled to respond to your post as I suspect there are lots of us out there.
