Changing custody arrangements? - mushroom - 05-10-2017

I'm a dad of a 7 year old girl, 2 years out of a divorce, I'm on the birth certificate and in the divorce agreement I have access to my daughter every other weekend.

I'm finding every other weekend is not enough, and my daughter says similar things to me about it feeling so long to actually see me in person, what are my options legally?

You can go to court to get a change to any Child Arrangements Order - if you dont already have one.

To be honest - every other weekend is a LOT more than most dads on here

Hi,

How far away are you from your child?

Any reason why there can't be any midweek contact even if that is just via FaceTime or Skype?

Would mum resist?

In terms of the law, in England its 10 before the Childs wishes and desires can be put to a Court.

However, you can apply to vary if its on a Court Order. It is normal, where a Judge considers shared care workable for you to get 0 or 1 mid week visit or stay over on your week, and 1 or 2 on the other.

Indirect contact can also be part of the order
