    My ex and I have recently seperated and shes making access extremely difficult.

    She was very controlling throughout our relationship and is exercising her control over one last bit of my life she can.

    I currently see my daughter 8 hours a week and I’m not allowed an overnight stay. She is quoting “legislation” that a child must have her own dedicated room. The current proposed arrangement is that on an overnight stay my child will sleep in my room and I will sleep on the sofa. Unfortunately I dont have a spare bedroom.

    I have no legal barriers preventing an overnight stay and my daughter wants to stay overnight with me.

    Have you any advice to help please.

    Hi, Micky, I am new, just been reading your post. Have either of you seen a solicitor? I think they do the first 1/2 free. They will be able to tell you your rights. Possibly arrange mediation. I found that my husband and I had trouble settling on something that was fair. It’s very easy for children to get caught up in the middle. Have you discussed where you want to go, whether it’s a divorce or reconciliation. At one point my husband kept me dangling for 6months,which confused the children as well as me!! If she has no reason to worry about you having the children, then you should be able to have them every other weekend. That’s how it was when I was going through it. I hope this helps. I know what it is like to miss your children, I have been on that side of things with my first husband. Just try and keep positive, not always easy, but I do think that you need some professional advice. Julie 123
