struggling to comply with court order
I really need some advice and real life experiences...
Firstly I struggle terribly with anxiety so I may be over thinking or overly worrying but here I go..
My daughter is 4 1/2 and has lived with me since she was born. My ex cheated on me while I was pregnant and we finally called it a day when my daughter was 3 months old. Since then he has paid nothing for her despite me having a CSA case and now a Child Maintenance case. He currently has £2.5k of arrears and a liability order but still hasnt paid.
He has seen her most weekends since we split as until recently we lived close to each other.
We had a court order that I instigated last year and it said he has her every Saturday and that she resides with me.
In January of this year my partner and I with my 2 daughters (one is my new partners) we moved 200 miles away. I gave my daughters Dad 2 weeks notice and asked him to discuss a new child care arrangement with me, he decided he didnt want to and took me to court for a Prohibited Steps Order, he wanted to stop me from moving.
The judge didnt stop me but put in place a temporary order saying he can have her every other weekend. It doesnt state who drives her, who pays for it etc.
I have issues because I have a 6 month old daughter so I have child care issues, I also have Carpel Tunnel Syndrome which means my wrist and hand go numb and ache, its worse if I drive long distance, I also do not have a job, we are totally supported by my new partner as child care costs too much for me to be able to work so given these 3 things I have said I am not able to drive my daughter 200 miles to him, 200 miles back and again then next day!
He is kicking up a major stink over this and saying as I moved away I have to do the travelling... I cant magic money out of thin air, I just cant, and I have a genuine medical reason for not being able to travel that far.
Now the temporary order has been breached because I refused to take my daughter for a visit, I did however email him and say he is welcome to collect her.
We have a final hearing on 9th Feb, obviously the court will ask how the visits have gone :-(
What do you think is going to happen? Im so scared they will take my princess away, Ive done everything I can for her as a single mother, I moved for a better life and shes happy. He is just a selfish man trying to punish me for some unknown reason.
