Hi single parents I'm interesting in hearing all/any stories of people who have had to go to court in order to sort their custody arrangements.
I can't see XH & I agreeing on care anytime soon & he is pushing mediation right now ASAP.
I'm still recovering from abuse he inflicted on me over the course of years & my head is still all over the place.
He has informed me he is intending to file on shared care (7/14) and I'm wondering how practical this is given his work (away often), DDs age (4), DDs special needs & the fact he is yet to attend or implement any therapy recommendations (ASD) let alone the DV & his denial of any said abuse also witnessed by DD.. And the fact that I am currently a SAHM 7 days a week.
I am awaiting my next appointment with my solicitor but in the meantime I'm terrified of his requests & for DDs well being.
Without knowing any extra information.. Do you think a court would actually award this?
What (if any) do you think if a fair shared care arrangement under the circumstances?.. None? Supervised? 1/14? 2/14? I have no idea & he is being incredibly pushy dispute my frequent requests not to 'discuss this with me again before mediation)
What was your situation? What type of care did you & your x agree on or what did the court appoint? Especially interested in other DV cases where no previous AVOs were in place before seperation.
