It's all over now, I'm not sure how to feel about it.

Mother's position was to keep to the current 12 hours a week, no over nights.

Mine was joint custody.

Judge wasn't happy that I have a one bed Maisonette for joint custody, even though children would have the bedroom and I'll have sofa bed in living room.

On the other hand he wasn't happy mother didn't want me to have overnights at all.

Mother got a full residence order. I got alternative Weekend nights, alternative Wenesday, plus a 4 hour visit on alternative Tuesday to break the week gap. Christmas I get 4 hours if I don't have them.

I don't know to be pleased or sad.

I know it wasn’t what you wanted, but it’s a good start and hopefully you can build on it. Your children will see you regularly and you have quality time at weekends to be able to do things together... to start creating memories.

If in the future you are able to upsize your accommodation, you could try and go for that shared care... parenting is fluid and and we as parents adapt to our children’s changing needs and growing independence.

All the best
