My babies dad has my 2 year old daughter once a week every week he wants to take her away for a week in August, I’ve never been apart that long from her I feel like she is too young, what do I do? Do I have legal rights
You can ask help from children services regarding this issue, actually where are you from?
If you have no child arrangements order via a court then you don’t have to permit anything.
Even if he took this to court a court would expect to do a build up to contact and probably only look at a weeks contact at around school age after having built up to two overnights, three etc.
i would simply formally tell him in email that a weeks holiday is too much at this time but you will be more than happy to discuss an increase in contact schedule.
Does he currently have the child overnight? Since when?
Thank you that’s very helpful!
im from southport
and solomummy he has her Monday to Tuesday every week since we broke up last year but was very on and off until after Christmas!
he is very controlling and in person I can never say no but I have really bad anexity about her going as he won’t even tell me who she is going with
If you wish to tell him no, do it in writing when you’re not going to see him. So say on a Tuesday night when your child has been returned.
Sadly with regards who would accompany him, you have no legal right to know. Morally maybe. But in many ways not being so het up over that will help you focus in the bigger issues.
