hi, my ex partner and I have recently seperated after 10 years after i found out he and my best friend had an affair. I moved out 32 weeks pregnant and he moved in with bestie. Our bub is now 4 weeks old and im busy with consent orders. Ex partner really wants to be involved in bubs live and are saying i am keeping her away from him with visitation times and days. I just want bub to have structure and routine. How many days and times do you think is suitable for ex partner to see bub?
It completely depends on the situation. Usually a court would rule 50:50 if possible but because of the age it might not be possible. Like last poster said. This is something for a lawyer to advise you on.
I spoke to the lawyer who was recommended on this page when I was looking to leave my partner when my child was 1. She said because of his age, my partner would not be getting 50/50..that doesnt happen til they are a bit older it seemed
She did say though, it’s hard to backtrack.. as an example, if you let him take the child 3 days a week, if you went to court it would be hard to argue he could only have the child one day a week. Try reach out to legal aid to get some free advice. Good luck x
