For the last 3 months after leaving the family home, I have been collecting my 2 year old son from his mother’s house on the days I have him as per an agreement we made.
She has recently started seeing someone new and text me a couple of days ago to tell me (not ask) that I would be picking my son up from from her partner’s house this weekend.
I’m not happy that, this early in the relationship, my child is staying at someone else’s house (the only reason I can think of why he’d be there at 9am) but that’s by the by. My main concern is that I’m not comfortable with picking him up from the house of someone I don’t know.
I’ve told my ex that I feel this isn’t reasonable and that we had an agreement in place. I offered a compromise and said that I’d be willing to meet at our half way point if she wasn’t at home, but she’s flat out refused. I’ve been told that if I want to see my son, I will need to pick him up from her partners.
I don’t know what I can do at this point. If I pick him up from where she’s told me, I’m only going to have to deal with the probability of her making more changes in the future. If I don’t, I don’t get to see my son.
Can anyone offer any advice? Do I just have to grin and bear it, or is there something more I can do?
Unfortunately it is best to pick your 2 year old son up from where your ex partner said. If you think there is going to be future problems now is the time to agree to going to new partners house for pick up, but also ask for more time with son. By having more time now especially overnights this would help you if u ever needed to go to family court in future
