      You sound very concerned about your daughter...maybe you should post on the forum with more information about what is making you afraid for your daughter's welfare....so that you can get a clearer response.

        Thank you for your wise and comforting words. I am trying to be strong as my partner deserve all the best in his life. He is such a wonderful man and devoted father. He is also a true gentleman. No matter what his ex will come up with it, no matter how much she tries to make our life hard, he never retailated in the same way. I truly admire him for that. You are right in saying that the sad, twisted ex will no succeed in breaking us off. Her spiteful, venomous campaign bonded us some how stronger.Her manipulations and hatred just back fired!
        I will wait a bit longer as my partner is worth it. Thank you again!!! xx

      just been through this my little one is 4 and found out he told me he was getting a place on his own but he now has his partner living there. I stopped him letting her sleep as he was not honest with me and demanded to see the girlfriend or I would not allow it. He lives in a one bedroom place to.
      I saw the girlfriend it was hard but did not want a stranger in the house or sleeping in the same place. I now have really put my foot down and made rules so he understands what I expect and now he listens and IT IS STILL HARD but made me feel more at ease.

      It can be v upsetting thinking about your children spending time with your ex's gf. The questions you have to ask yourself are: will it harm the children if they do? How harmful to the children is a big falling out between you and their dad over this?
      I guess you have questions you want to ask your ex about this - for tips on how to have a difficult conversation click on the Programmes tab on the home page. Or ...have you thought about giving mediation a try?

      It sounds like a very straightforward question...however, as you probably realise it is not easy to answer. Ideally you would work together with his ex to do the best for both children ...but what you consider to be the best is obviously different from her opinion. It could be that the best option for all of you is that your boyfriend and his ex attend mediation sessions to work out how they are going to co parent their son...and contact arrangements etc. it can be hard to negotiate with ex's when feelings run high, mediation helps by having a trained facilitator manage the situation.Why not post on the forum with more information so that others in your situation can respond with their experience.

      I guess none of us can get inside her head to know what she is thinking , What is happening that makes you think she is bitter and nasty?. When in dispute , we always think the other person is the unreasonable one ! . why don't you use the listening room from 9.00 -10.00pm or use the forum and explain your situation a bit more and you may be able to get some support .

        That's tough. How are you and your son coping?

        Maybe she still has issues about your relationship when you were still together. Or maybe you haven't sorted out the finances yet that's causing conflict. Why not use the Forum to tell us more about what you're having to deal with?

        I wonder what has happened to cause you to need to find out what benefits you are entitled to? If you want some feedback from others about your situation why not post more details on the forum. Others in similar situations might be able to help.
