Hey :)

I thought I'd give an update on my situation after seeing my Daughter again for exactly a year this week :)

As some of you know I spent most of last year not seeing my baby daughter whilst I battled through court, looking back a year on since the court ordered that I see my Girl for 1 hour every 2 weeks it all seems surreal compared to how things have turned out now.

My Ex has been sound as a pound for the past 10 months no major issues at all today she commented on what a great dad I am (bout bloody time lol) so that was nice.

I've had to forgive her for the sake of our Girl which has happened in the past few months and we are friends again.

We've had a few hiccups along the way but I've found compromise is key I've sort of been looking at the bigger picture and thinking is my gripe really worth it in the general scheme of things.

We have actually been co-parenting brilliantly and you can see how happy our girl is for sure.

It's defo took a good year to build my relationship back up with my girl it has been hard at some stages but I suppose that's being a parent although nothing can be as hard as fighting through the Courts it still sends a shiver down my spine when I thing about the state of my head at the time.

I pick my girl up friday tea time and drop her off monday morning every week without fail now I suppose it's 40/60 shared care it still doesn't stop me missing her through the week though I always struggle on wednesdays but try and keep myself busy.

I've had my girl every weekend for the past 10 months only having missed one friday for a works do I must admit I am ready to start getting myself out and about a bit more so I'm off over the Atlantic for a couple of weeks spinning the tunes very soon I'm gonna miss my girl but looking forward to seeing my friends and having a proper holiday.

The ex is cool about me going away although she is jealous lol.

It's nice coming on this site and seeing most dads getting great results in court and seeing Dad's getting a better rep in the media I think the tide is defo turning it's just a shame we have to prove ourselves so much when you're ex goes nuts and you have to go to court.

All the best

Slim :)

I'm no way trained in Family court matters so don't take my ramblings as gospel but I've been through the Court mill and learned so much along the way I just like passing my experience on to other Dads who face this absolute nightmare from hell, you might not be able to beat the system but don't let it beat you :)

That's brilliant Slim.

Really happy for you. Shows that all the hard work is paying off.

Thanks for sharing, it shows that even when you can't see the light at the end of the tunnel, that is does eventually come.

Being civil is a big key.
