    Default Hi. LONG HIATUS now single parent. advice please.

    Hi all.

    So it's been quite a few years since I've been here.

    I'm now a single mum to my 5 sons and need some advice on legality stuff.

    More... XDh is refusing to buy a car that will fit all the boys and wants to just swap cars with me every fortnight when he has them...
    he also wants to buy a ute.

    I have no idea where I stand!?!?

    If i refuse to let him have the car.... can he refuse to take all the kids??

    I've got 5 sons 10yrs old and under.. the weekends off keep me sane! 😮😮

    Firstly I'm sorry to hear about your marriage break up. Far as I know if the car is yours then it's his problem on his weekends. He can always hire a car when he needs it.



    wifey of hubby who is always away. mother of two girls who are always amusing.

    I guess if he wants to buy a ute you can't stop him. I would look at local public transport and get the timetables for him explaining that is his only other option.
    Do not give him your car. Buying a ute when you have 5 kids is just cray cray!

    I was just thinking of you the other day and wondering what you were up to. I'm sorry to hear this update (unless you're happy about it, in which case congratulations!)...

    I'd suggest that what he is wanting may be a short term compromise type of solution but it is definitely not manageable for the long term.
