    My ex is very controlling over contact with my two children. Anything I request I get the response “I’ll agree to ….” as if it’s her place to control the shared parenting

    The situation is now taking over my whole mind and I can’t work out the best way forward. Is it via court to get a stable pattern of care?? Also as I work I am reliant on my ex picking the children up from school and I pick them up from her. Seems like she may remove this making it even harder for me to co parent

    Just looking for some words of support and ideas

    Gosh shes lucky to have you wanting to co parent and be involved. Maybe try mediation? Good luck

    Thanks Busybee

    She’s  just making it more and more difficult as each few months go by. She only works part time hours 10-2 but expects me to do school runs which isn’t feasible with working as well.

    Mediation she has refused as I don’t tbink she really wants anyone else’s views or opinions that might ve contrary to her own

    My ex had to go down the court route due to a difficult controlling mum to their daughter. If she really isnt up for trying to work with you then sounds like you do need to go to the courts maybe if ahe gets a solicitor letter she may realise that you mean business. Also ots costly so can she really afford to go down this route when it could be reloved easily. Honestly i dont get parents like this theres so many of us that are solely single parenting and would love nothing more than some support and for the boys to see there dad and you het someone whom just wants to make things difficult. 🙁

    Sounds like controlling behaviour to me – a missive from a Solicitor would be my route, hopefully should bring her back to being reasonable

    Hi Soccer Dad

    My solicitor sent a long letter detailing how shared parenting should work and that no one has the ability to dictate to the other

    She totally ignored the content and if anything is now worse
