Hi,

I work full times as does my ex and we are both now able to do so from home. However since the schools have shut my ex is refusing to take on any of the extra childcare. I have two primary aged children who were normally in school and then after school childcare until 7pm. I am struggling to do my job and now care for the children including homeschooling (which their school is providing only lessons the parents are to give the children!) in the current situation. My ex has then one night a week overnight at the weekend. I am constantly working and parenting and finding it hard to cope. My boss will not furlough me. Is there any way my ex can legally be made to take some on this responsibility? I can not last much longer.
