Despite my ex promising to help out in the school holidays he never does. Leaving me to work every Saturday when he looks after our son (no leisure time for me !) to build up enough flexi time to cover the school holidays. Despite my requests he says he doesn't want to waste his holidays, preferring to fly to exotic places with his new girlfriend !
Does anyone know if it is worthing seeking legal advice or am I fighting a losing battle ?
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

Sorry, there is no way to force a parent to see their children. Contact orders are designed so that the PWC has to make children available for contact, which is the child's right, but there is no onus on the NRP to take it up.
