I am after some advice please. I currently have 50/50 care through a court order for our 14 year old son. Recently he has been getting more and more unhappy about going to his mum’s, because basically he is just left alone in his room, and she does very little if anything with him. He is bored, and is starting to hate it. He asked if he could live with me full time a few days ago. I am concerned because he is really, really unhappy and it is obvious, he dreads going to hers. She wakes up at 1 or 2 pm most days, not because she is a night worker, but because she chooses to go to bed early morning, she spends most of the time in her room and basically neglects him and the only reason she wants him is to get DLA allowance (he is on the spectrum, but mildly), which isn’t spent on him, and she refuses to give me half, even though I have a legal 50/50 split.
Thanks for the reply. I’m not too bothered about the DLA payment, the systems do not allow for dual parent set up so end of story, but seeing my son being so miserable is a concern. I was just after any advice on what I should do really, go back to court to get the order changed? He no longer wants to live with her, at all, even every other weekend. His needs have changed, and she is, and always has neglected those needs.
