    I hope it's all OK!! It is a significant increase from three nights a fortnight to seven. At the moment we only have weekend time, and the law states that a parent has the right to both quality weekend and weekday time, so it will have to change as it isn't a fair arrangement at the moment, so we've gone for the maximum which is week about. We're prepared so that we have a smooth transition for DSS - so no schooling changes, sports, activities etc, and we'd buy an extra set of all uniforms etc so that he only takes his school bag from one house to another. So we've planned it all out and put that in our documents - we've put forward a really positive case that the parents have managed for six years without legal agreements in place, so they have a history of amicable co-parenting, but seek legal orders now that they can't agree on DH seeing more of DSS.

    He's nine turning ten mid-year, so at the right age to be increasing time with Dad.

    thanks @Corbes. sounds like you've got this down pat! they used to have a bloods area at my GP's office but now there's a doctor in the room. so I'm not sure if they've just relocated the bloods or if I have to goto the pathology place which is a few streets away.

    @Charlie74 I'm going to be super interested to see what response/instructions you get from LB. I asked her about Progy vaginally and Viagra a week or so ago. She shook her head to both. I wonder if she'll suggest either. Or whether you're going to have to go all @BlondeinBrisvegas on us, ie rogue, and self-medicate!!
    AFM I should get AF at the end of this week, then my first lining scan will be 1.5 wks later. While I know the min is 6mm and ideally 7-8mm, at this stage with my lining getting thinner and thinner on each cycle I just want to make it to transfer! So I'm crossing my fingers for 6mm and then go from there. Just throw me a bone and I'll take it. I'm not asking for the whole cow!!!

    @Summer Fair call if he'll be 10y/o by the time the parenting order is granted. My just turned 4y/o has the same amount of contact as your DSS currently has with Dad. Good luck to you, DH and DSS.

    Thanks hon, and for being so supportive when you likely see it from the other side too.
    It was agreed very early on that the three nights a fortnight would work best when DSS was younger, with an increase in time with DH as he got older, but when the subject was first spoken about eighteen months ago, the ex decided she didn't agree with the original outline of increasing time, which is why we've ended up at legal proceedings. The only reason it will work for us is that I work from home and am very flexible and DH runs his own business that he is now in the process of selling, so that he can semi-retire and be very hands on. So we are in a position where it will work, but know it's not the ideal for everyone.
