    My ex and I have split our time with our daughter since separating, arranging the schedule between ourselves. But recently he’s said he can longer have our daughter during the week due to his work schedule, instead he wants her Friday to Monday while I have her Monday till Friday night, with one weekend a month she stays with me Friday till Sunday morning, he will then have her Sunday till Monday.

    I want my daughter and her dad to have a good relationship and think it’s fair he has her but am I being selfish in not wanting to loose a weekend? I am getting conflicting advice from friends and family. It’s really having an effect on me, I can’t sleep and I’m very tearful when I think about it.

    She is not at school yet.

    I suggested mediation but I can’t really afford it and I’m told if it goes to court they will go in his favour and he will have every weekend.

    Any advice? Or has anyone been in the same situation?

    I don’t think you are being selfish. It’s natural to want time with our children.

    Why have people said they will reward in his favour?

    why has his work schedule changed?

    How does this fit with your own work schedule?

    What if your work schedule suddenly changed? Would he accommodate?
