Does interim court order from years ago (which we have modified) still stand?
Hello, I do not feel shared care is working in my children's best interests as the level of conflict is unfortunately very high and constructive communication between us is now practically zero. We have very different parenting approaches and he has not been willing to compromise at all. I have tried to remain neutral but she sends abusive and threatening messages. We do not even look at each other during transitions which I believe makes the conflict very visible to the children. My ex has pushed through shared care when he knew I didn't agree with it. I did not want to pursue a full court hearing as I knew my children would be asked for their views and I didn't want to put them in this situation. I would have always allowed contact but I feel this arrangement is very unsettling for the children. He is very controlling and manipulative. We have tried mediation a number of times and it hasn't worked. He regularly turns up to drop the children off late and one morning last week he didn't turn up at all, opting instead to take the children straight to school without informing me. What would be the consequences of simply saying no, the children and I are not doing this any more? Thanks.
