    Hi all,

    single dad to a 6 year old little girl in the South Yorkshire/Derbyshire area looking to hook up with others for walks, drinks and other social activities. Living with brother at the moment and daughter doesn’t live with me but I get to see her at least once a month. She is my world as I don’t have any other friends that I see anymore.

    Thanks for reading, all the best x

    Sorry I meant visits to your daughter, is that cause of shifts?

    Sorry no, I live in Sheffield she lives in Hertfordshire with her mum now, she did used to live up here with me but when we split up she moved back home to her parents. We still talk as we think it’s better for our daughter.

    Yes definitely better if you can be amicable as it makes arranging visitation easier.

    Just a thought but if you have few ties where you are other than your brother is relocating to be nearer to her an option so you could see her more often?

    I’ve thought about it tbh but all my family live near me and I have a health condition that can affect me somewhat at times so I need the support.

    Ah, understood.  Does it affect your ability to travel?  Would changing jobs but staying in same location improve things?

    I can travel no problem but it’s a 2 and half hour drive to get there. I am currently looking at changing jobs as my current role is quite stressful

    Sounds like it would kill two birds with one stone so to speak.   Hope things get better for you soon.

    Hi all,

    looking for some advice. I’m a dad who sees my daughter twice a month on a Saturday. I have had to miss a few contacts due to work. It’s a 2 hour drive from me in London to her in Norfolk, made Longer by the ex moving house. I have been stopped by my ex from seeing my daughter as I have had to work a few Saturdays and paid her CSA money one day late when I was on a training course. My question is, if I was to take my ex to court for an enforcement would they consider me to be in breach of the original court order due to me missing a few contacts as I’ve had to work ? Or would they breach her for stopping the contact. I can’t see me working to pay csa money every month  reason to stop contact or as a breach. Any advice welcome. Thanks to all
