There’s no age limit on children being interviewed by CAFCASS; our daughter was 5 at the time and her wishes were given great importance.

I’d be minded to take it back to court to ask for a variation and have his time reduced.  As Anonymous alluded to, you must be seen to be supportive of the childrens’ relationship with their dad and it must be clear that it is the wishes of the children to have less time away than it is your wish.

Will court ask for mediation for a variation?  I’m not sure the answer to this one so hopefully someone else is better placed to answer.  Mediation could be the answer to the issues.

If you don’t make your children available for the times stipulated in the order he could just drag you back to court anyway.
