Build up in contact?
Just wondering what your opinions or experiences are of a built up in contact time scale wise? Building up to 6 overnights a fortnight including weenights and weekdays.
Currently sees other parent for 9 hours over 3 days with no overnights.
Thanks for any help
- Should also add children are 6 and 7 with the younger having additional needs
what are current arrangements, are there any overnights at the moment?
Currently no overnights, just 9hrs over 3 days which are two weekdays after school for dinner and 3hrs at the weekend.
The children have previously stayed overnight at their mother's house but this hasn't happened in over a year now and cafcass have said it would need to be a slow build up to the 6 nights a fortnight but I'm just wondering what they class as slow.
It will be every other weekend and a couple nights on weekdays.
from my experience with cafcass, they would do something like a gradual build up. so in your case as its 3 hours a weekend, they would recommend something like 4/6 hours per weekend for 2-3 months. Then 8 hours. then 1 overnight per weekend for 2-3 months. then 2 nights...
