Have been split from my partner for nearly 9 years. Communication was difficult at first but we came to an arrangement and it’s been working well. However for over 6 months he has been ignoring my messages if i politely ask for any changes to the arrangements (I always message with respect and manners) I have suggested returning to mediation but he’s not interested. At the moment he has her for longer this bank holiday and I’ve simply asked when can I pick her up tomorrow and he’s ignoring me…..any advice?
Tbh I would have thought that if he’s not wishing to enter into protracted discussion the default would be whatever is typical for those circumstances. Eg if the parent with bank holiday drops off at lunch then assume that’s the case. If however he’s not sticking to the past defaults and not communicating this there are bigger issues…….
I assume this was an informal arrangement?
You could try a contact book sent with the children…..
We went to mediation when she was 2 years old….he’s bought her a telephone so that’s cutting me out. As she’s growing up she is getting invited to parties etc. (He has her every weekend) so sometimes ask for the odd change for her best interests…..
