Basically im a single dad of two kids (4&2) and I had made plans with my ex partner about seeing the kids both together and individually whilst I am off work for the 10 days over the Christmas period.
As the weeks gone on my ex partner as tried to alter these original plans on several occasions and I have told her demands are not possible, so she has thrown the dummy out the pram and blocked my mobile number so I can’t now contact her regarding access to my kids and my evening telephone call with them.
Instead I have had a text message from her new partner saying that I have to go through him with regards to access and my evening telephone call with my kids
I would like to know can my ex legally make me go through this method of having to go through her new partner legally without an order as such stating it?
Hi Dan, another option is to request mediation first as you can still come away with a legally binding document regarding child arrangements and contact and it will cost less than going through court with solicitors
At the end of mediation, if you do come to an agreement, the mediator draws up a document that your solicitor can give to a judge for a consent order. This is what makes it legally binding. Without a consent order, it’s an informal agreement through mediation. I am just going through the mediation process now and this is what I have been told.
