The court ruled that reducing the father’s contact is not in the children’s best interests because they’re used to the contact with him and it would financially disadvantaged the mother, with whom they reside.15 August 2019 at 5:26 am #29211

- I just want to tell mother’s that they CAN enforce an order if father dies not comply. He can’t use it as a form of control by not picking up children as agreed in an order so as to make life difficult for the mother.
Thankfully the advice I was given on here was wrong. The magistrates ruled that reducing father’s access (non resident parent) in the school holidays and having no set pick up time would not be in the children’s best interests. My ex husband had focused only on that it would be in his best interests because of his work, not the children. I argued that I need to work too and it would disadvantage the children. He was also reminded by the magistrates that he had parental responsibility and should not be pushing all of his responsibility on to me and that if he did not comply with the order then he risks imprisonment. He has effectively been forced to have the children in the school holidays as per the original order. His employment does not prioritise mine. I demonstrated my efforts to compromise for what is best for the children but he did not. It could be different because it was a variation of a child arrangements order.15 August 2019 at 5:16 am #29209

<li style=”text-align: left;”>I really don’t understand that. The non resident parent agreed to a court order. He breached it twice by not having the children. The court themselves told me via email and also during my last hearing that I could enforce the order if I wanted so if he would have sanctions. I understand if there is no order in place then you can’t make a non resident parent have their child but if there is an order then both parents need to comply. This is for variation of an order not a new one. Are you trained in law or is your advice from experience? Thanks
Thanks for your advice. I’m not sure if it’s right though otherwise there would not be the option of me taking it to court to enforce the order if he breached it by not having them when it’s stated in the order.10 July 2019 at 7:55 am #27528
He took it to court for the original order so if he didnt have the children when he agreed to them he was in breach of the order. Isn’t that the courts making him have them? He originally wanted them every single weekend but I compromised with 3 weekends out of 4. Now he wants to change to fortnightly, not pick up from school times and cut holidays in half. I’m saying that it’s detrimental to the kids if he reduced access so much. He doesn’t want any set times on his Fridays so I’m arguing that too that they need routine and would be upset at such a dramatic reduction.
