    So the section 7 report came back. Couldn’t find nothing wrong with my parenting or housing. Couldn’t find nothing to back up the children mother allegations even safeguarding checks came back sounds part from her false accusations which came after relationship ended. ( just lodged allegations so they come up, nothing came in during 8 year relationship). Which police never chased up as they said its rubbish. She struggles to day to day parenting ie taking children school, she always has to be around her mother. When i raise she struggling to do day to day parenting as she need her mother assistance on daily basis. Yet I get refused shared custody by cafcass cause I work. In my eyes if she struggling with day to day care how can she primary carer and refused shared custody with no real reason

    hi,

    yes what usually happens in court, if you tell them your work commitments will get in the way of spending time with children, then they will give you less contact, usually every other weekend. if your work is flexible enough, then hopefully your able to get more contact.

    what recommendations did the s7 report make?

    No one asked the times I work. I start at 9 finish at 3.  I have never said work will get in way. Work is very flexible. Even with current order.

    Tuesday PM  til Wednesday AM return the youngest to mum after school run. (This was suggested  in s7)

    Then every other weekend Friday til Sunday.

    I did have them every Saturday as well until she stopped it. Even though it was basis rebuilding  relationship after she stopped all contact.

    Cafcass said I couldn’t have shared custody as going to school from two different house is confusing and to much change routine. Cafcass kept saying keep to norm. Even though this started march last year,  the mother refused help with any home schooling and with the current covid situation.

    Surely you have create a new norm after break up.

    unfortunately court/cafcass don’t like to give 50/50 if they see that both parents don’t get along and think they will not be able to communicate properly to make 50/50 work. It was out of the question for me also, because of these reasons and her refusing to communicate with me directly and being difficult. I have heard many cases of dads going for 50/50 and most don’t get it. your arrangement is still decent. I have kids fri after school- monday school drop every other week, and mon-tue every other week.

    Two of buddies got custody of the children. Basis of her whole case is on false accusations.  One minute she said she lived in 1 bed house, told me I can keep rented property, week later gets me illegally evicted me even though I got proof I can have it and she left the house.  Load of police calls logged which til this day police haven’t got in contact with me on her claims.  System outdated and biased just for money.
