Looking for some advice before my case goes to court.
Me and my child’s father were never really together. He was quite supportive at the beginning of pregnancy then became incredibly controlling and manipulative so had to keep my distance.
We had an agreement in place for him to see the baby when he was born, 3 times a week for 2 hours to build a bond. This happened 3 times then, unfortunately, I had to isolate due to covid. Before the isolation period was over I received a letter from his solicitor to say that he was going to start having our son for 5 hours 2 days a week on his own. I have no safety concerns as he lives with his parents and his mum looks after his other child when there. My concern is the baby doesn’t know him and it will be distressing to be left for hours without me.
What is an appropriate approach to this? My solicitor said the court will rule in his favour and agree to the 5 hours without me. I just can’t see how that’s best for the baby?!
Baby is 11 weeks old now. He hasn’t seen him since January. He’s also demanding to change his surname to double barrel, hes registered with my surname. I dont want that changed but don’t know where I stand with that.
I don’t know much about the legal side and hopefully in the a.m someone who knows better will be able to help you but for the mo I’m just wondering how his solicitor thinks he can tell you what his client ‘is doing’. Errrrrr…..it’s important to keep your head screwed on bc he sounds a bit overwhelming and personally I would find myself panicking and then giving in.It really does sound like a lot of hours to start with for a young baby who hasn’t seen him for so long and as you are the main carer right now ,from what I’ve read on this site hopefully you will have more control and say in the matter.I hope it goes better than it looks right now.x
