Finally - A Good Outcome
#1
As all you know, I have been through the Court Process once, and I got kinda what I wanted, but I also let the mother get more of what  she wanted - and in the end I felt I got screwed over badly.

I decided during the first tranche of Lockdown that I wanted to see Stampy more, she is growing and she needs her dad more in her life - even if I  am so far away, so I filed for a second round of court in July of this year.

We started doing a lot of talking, including conference calls which we both recorded and we started thrashing out more details.

Today we finally reached an agreement, and it will be lodged with the Court tomorrow.

I get unsupervised
I get more days
I get special times (Christmas/New Year/Easter/Etc)
I get alternate birthdays
I get Holidays
I get overnights in time
I get extra days
I also get extra days which I didn't ask for

Its been nearly 4 years since I started all this process -  this would be my second court appearance, but we have managed to get there - and you guys can too.

Ironically during this process myself and my ex have finally managed to bury the hatchet and we are frenemies - I  doubt we would ever be friends, but theres a level of understanding and we don't hate each other as much as we did.
The opinions here are not that of Separated Dads, but merely a loving father who has been through the process and has come out the other side.

Well done mate! Happy for you

Frenemies is fine. Anything that spares you the misery of court/disagreements and supports a loving father-daughter relationship is great!
