How often does your ex/s see the kids?
He has her every second weekend and sometimes sees her at other times, it varies week to week and just depends on what he's got going on.
What percentage of care do you have?
I'm not sure what it works out to - 85%?
Do you wish ex/s would see child/ren more often?
Yes and no. I wish he could take some of the pressure off during the week. Then again, he's not that great at organising her for school, or looking after her generally (doesn't have a proper bed for her at his place, lets her stay up till all hours and only feeds her junk food) so it's probably best that I stay in control most of the time.
Are there any circumstances that prevent ex/s from seeing children more often (such as DV, work etc)
Ex's schedule is all over the place. He is working three casual jobs at the moment as he is just starting out in his career and trying to get a foot in to get a permanent job in the industry. If he gets a permanent job and regular hours, he may be able to work in some more time with him and DD - whether it will actually happen is another question.
Who was main care provider prior to separation?
Hmm, complicated. I worked and Ex studied. He looked after DD while I was at work, but I looked after her the rest of the time, so based purely on hours then I would say it was me.
Do you have family close by or do you rely on childcare?
I have lots of family around but they all work. DD went to childcare 4 days a week until she started school, now she goes to before and after care 4 days a week.
Do you work or study?
Yes I work full time.
Did you have career prior to having kids? And is it one that requires reskilling?
Yes, I am a lawyer. Not sure what "reskilling" means in this context. If I took an extended break (ie more than 1 year maternity leave) then yes I think there are a few things I would need to do to re-gain my practising certificate.
Is your current career child friendly hours?
Not in the slightest. Even if I drop DD as soon as before care opens and pick her up from after care at closing time, I am still the one "leaving early". I often work from home in the evenings.
