    Hi , looking for a bit of advice please.

    I currently have my children every other weekend fri- sun and alternate pick up so on one weekend I will travel 30 miles to collect and 3o miles back to my house

    the next time I have them my ex will me meet me half way at pick up , but I still travel 30 miles to drop them  suck on sun.

    she us now saying she can’t meet me anymore as her hours at work have changed , I’ve suggested she can drop them of later but she has refused this

    I also suggested that she could meet me at the half way point Instead when I bring them back

    Any suggestions please

    Personally I’d say you should do all the travelling. She doesn’t have to provide travel arrangements for you to see your children….It’s 60miles every other weekend. She’s not being unreasonable.

    I know a dad that does a 450mile round trip every other weekend and has never complained.

    why do some people think it’s someone else’s responsibility to make sure they have contact with their children? It’s not her responsibility, it’s yours.

    It’s 60 fri and 60 sun, she’s is the one who moved away , so you don’t think meeting halfway is fair

    No I don’t, sorry.
    I don’t know your story, what your circumstances are, what maintenance you may pay, if you want to see the kids more etc.
    I think travelling that far every other weekend for Friday-Sunday is nothing compared to her being expected to do all school pick ups, drop offs, work and be a mum….with 4 nights (roughly) off a month.

    We coparent 50/50, but I still do all the driving, as I’m the only one out of the two of us that can. That’s 360 miles pick up and drop off, and she’s 3 on 3 off at work, so it’s 180 miles every 3 days.

    If you’ve only got the every other week, I wouldn’t complain, I wouldn’t expect her to meet you half way either.
