Hi. After some help please. There is an order in place for my 6 year old little boy. He lives with me and has contact with his other parent every other weekend. The order has only been in place for less than a year and my ex has made lots of changes to this and I have gone along with it to keep the peace. However now they are saying the Child Arrangements Order is no longer valid?? I thought this was until the child was 16? I understand it can be built upon or varied which I may look in to doing.
The latest change in the order is for school collection. The first one my partner picked him up but the next my ex allowed their partner to do so. The school couldn't do anything about this apparently and released him. My concern is that my son hasn't known this person long and my ex took me to court for contact and is now giving this time away so freely to someone else who has no responsibility for our son?? The partner has been quite nasty to me and from day 1 made their presence known by confronting me, writing about my son in the arrangements book and so forth, I have so far just got legal advice to address matters, but now this! Surely if the other parent doesn't want the time with their child, then another arrangement should be made? I have even offered collecting our son myself and then meeting up later for drop off. Am I wrong in thinking this don't feel right?? I am prepared to go back to court to address things (there are a few other issues) but obviously need to know where I stand. In the court order it reads that I must make our son available for the other named parent on such a such day, are they breaching it by allowing someone else to do this? TIA
