    Hi,
    First time user here so very nervous at using this.   My ex, father to girls age 7 and 9 has had mental health issues and was suicidal last year.  He is now in therapy 6 x week and sent a solicitor letter saying he wants wed/and every other weekends.  Until now we have had a verbal agreement of no overnights (split 3 years ag0) given that he was actively suicidal.  Since july we agreed sun and wed contact but he has been erratic dropping last minute etc. and kids have been confused.   I have got a solicitor now and am suggesting we keep sun/wed for now for next year whilst he shows his commitment and ability to parent (Until early this year he was a gambling and drug addict – this is in writing).   I feel I am being fair but he is being really challenging and making other arrangements via kids.  Solicitor is dealing with all this but in the meantime – he sent a message about xmas – wants sun (x eve) and boxing day and see the xmas.  Also asking for other days to do things with them.  I feel that I should stick to sun/wed with option for him to pop in on Xmas if he wishes to – naturally girls can call him at any point.   Is this fair??
