You are right with your first point, that is what an order is usually for. But I’m guessing you don’t have the order thru the post yet? When you get it thru the post have a really good read of it,it will tell you clearly what is what re contact with dad. I can’t see that it would tell you you can’t go away for more than 11 days unless there are special reasons you haven’t mentioned.

Believe it or not it is quite good that he let you know in advance that he was going to be late picking up your son and that he wasn’t going to be able to have him on a particular weekend, many ex’s might not have done that to be honest so that isn’t too bad. And yes the court would expect flexibility from both of you but bear in mind it has to be a two way street, he needs to be flexible with you too. If either of you took it back to court for minor reasons the judge would not be impressed at all.
