TOPIC: Overnight Care

Overnight Care 4 weeks 22 hours ago #108227

From the CMS perspective roughly what time does overnight care start compared with day-to-day care? Is there a rough guide?

An overnight stay is when your child stays at your house and sleeps over until next morning

I've always had my kids overnight from around 5pm, my ex is now saying i need to collect them from school at 3:30pm (which she has always done) with work i would struggle to do this though.

The time you pick them up has nothing to do with CMS. As long as they sleep at yours overnight.

This issue would be covered in any agreement you have with your ex either informal or via a child arrangements order.

hi,

I'm in similar situation to you. went to court, but they basically making me collect kids from school, to avoid conflict at ex's home, e.g. you turn up after work and she refuses to let you collect kids.

Sounds sensible Bill, its the reason many pick ups and drop offs happen at school. Parents can make the school aware of the order and the school will ensure the child is handed to the relevant parent as per the order.

Lance, in relation to your work, you have a legal right to put in a flexible working request on the basis of childcare. So you could request to finish early so you can pick up kids. However in return you would either have to make back the time on other days or start earlier or reduce your working hours. Don't know your circumstances so you would need to consider if feasible, take a look at your HR policies.

An alternative is to request and agree this informally with your employer.

Thanks
