Hi robbietorbay,

I have moved this into it's own thread as it was lost in the other one. Think you may get some more joy as it own thread.

My daughters social worker said that I/we may have to do a residence order in my favour if our agreement does not work.

But if your residence order is shared care, then your ex can do as she pleases, but once your child is old enough to to decide - then your ex will not decide?

Just my two peneth, I am no expert.

I have a shared residence order, but to be truthful they are not worth much more than a contact order if mum does not want to stick too it! Mine was only given to me after mum would not stick to several different contact orders and it was then at the recommendation of both CAFCASS and my solicitor that a shared residence order be put in place - worked for about 2 years, but it has now severely broke down.
