Found out today from an extremely aggressive and hostile email from the ex that she has breached a recording made on a court order. She has also stated that she will be varying the contact arrangements for the next 2 weeks in order to be a royal pain in the behind.

The recording states that she may register my son in nursery education in her town on Mondays and Tuesdays, I may register him in nursery in my town on Thursdays and Fridays.
Found out today that she has also registered him on a Wednesday too.

What effect does a breach of a recording have? Is it not worth the paper it''s printed on?

With regard to contact, the arrangements should be that Contact this week runs from Wednesday 6.00 pm - Sunday 3.00 pm. She emailed me to say that she wants my son to have his photo taken at school on Friday so I can''t have contact until Friday evening. I responded to say I did not agree to the change as it means that son will not be able to attend nursery on his second week. It also means 2 days of missed contact which is disproportionate to a school photograph.

She is getting married to the poor mug on 20th. Contact would normally run from 6.00 pm Wednesday - 9.00 am Saturday that weekend. I offered to let her pick son up at 3.45 pm on Friday so that he could still go to nursery and not interfere with their wedding plans. She writes back to say no, there will be no contact that week as she is too busy, therefore son will miss nursery again. The week after is half term (he can''t attend in half term as it''s NEG funded) and so if these 2 events go ahead then it will be 4 weeks between the last time he attended nursery and the next time. That''s clearly inappropriate in my opinion.

My personal favourite line of her whole email is:

"There will clearly be dates that cannot be adhered to within court arrangements as life does not abide by court deadlines and rules."

Erm... correct me if I''m wrong but there''s a screw loose there? Perhaps what she meant was:

"There will clearly be dates that cannot be adhered to within court arrangements as I don''t abide by court deadlines and rules."
