I've heard it was hard but managed to get my ex to agree to it (that's the hard part). I have sole custody and he has visitation (no overnight visits) this was mostly because:
a) they are all young (5, 3, 1)
b) he has prescription drug and health probelms
c) he hasn't really got anywhere to take them as is sharing a flat with a friend.
He signed the consent orders so it's a done thing.. but can be reviewed (at his expense this time) later as the children grow up. I don't have a problem with him having overnight visitation as long as he takes a drug test to be sure it's safe for him to be around the children. But I'm not going to get the consent orders revisited - he'll have to take me to court next time and he can pay (I had to pay $600 to get the consent order put together and he never paid a penny).
Babies spend much of their time sleeping, however, are you aware that some sleeping arrangements are unsafe and can increase the risk of fatal sleeping accidents? Learn about this and more with the Pregnancy & Development of Your Baby Guide.
