I am looking for some advice, I recently obtained a court order and the order states that my ex wifeh as to make my daughter available for 6 nights of the month, alternative Christmas and New Year arrangements and I am able to have her for 2x 7 night holidays per year.
This order has been working perfectly until Christmas has been mentioned. The order states that I am to collect my daughter at 2pm on Christmas day and drop her off at 6pm on Boxing Day and vice versa each year.
My ex is now refusing to let me have access to my daughter and is stating I can have her on the 23rd/24th December. I have tried to advise that this is in the court order but she will not conform.
I have looked into a few options and I would like to write a letter, stating that she is in breach and that I will enforce the order if the breach continues and advise her on the possible sanctions of breach.
Has anyone sent a letter like this or have a example?
during my case, barrister suggested alternate days for special occassions each year. i said not a good idea as these occassions are 2 days a year and not fair on one parent to miss out completely. so i went with the half day options. is it possible for you to make a half day arrangement with ex so both of you get to see child on xmas day? court order does not stop both of you making additional arrangements that suit both of you.
if shes not interested, then you have already told her that shes in breach and fully aware. i dont think sending her a polite letter will make much difference. your better off just enforcing the order.
