    My partner kicked me out last night and said that I have to apply to the court to have any contact with my children. I have checked online and found no supporting evidence that they can do this. But it does not say how I can see my children. Oaf I knock the door what happens? Will I be done for being aggressive? To top it all of my number has been blocked so I can not call them. Any advice would be of help.

    Seek legal advice from citizens advice? Or if you can afford it, family law?

    hi,

    I would advise to stay away from the house. she could accuse you of harassment and have you arrested. even worse could get a non-molestation/restraining order against you. if you have no choice but to apply to court, I suggest you to book an appointment with a family mediator. they would have to give you permission to apply to court.

    Seen my kids all this week my partner had to work, and I have a week booked for to cover the holiday, but been told I am not needed this weekend or next week as they have arranged something. Feel like a babysitter but I do like spending time with them but always will be on their terms it would seem.

    hi,

    yes that is the problem, she can let you see kids as and when it suits her, or use some carrot and stick approach against you. you don’t have to put up with that.

    Difficult! All forums are staying court should be a last option but I can’t see anyway around it. I know as soon as school starts it will be you can drop them and pick them up mon-Friday see them every second Saturday that I work. Oh but they live with me full time and I am the primary carer so pay me full time maintenance.

    children need consistency and a stable routine. frankly they need both parents in their lives. it also depends on what you want and think is best for kids. for example if you want the children to spend 2 weeks in the summer holidays with you, and this is denied to you, I don’t think there is much that can be done other than taking legal route. through the courts it is very common to get an arrangement where a parent sees children every other weekend, and time during the school holidays, often half of school holidays. you may also face issues in future, such as you wanting to take kids on holiday abroad and not being allowed.

    maintenance wise, not much can be done as court would usually keep the status quo, and she will remain as primary carer. but at least with a court order, it would state the number of nights the kids stay with you, and you can use that as evidence for Child maintenance service to reduce your payments.
