At my second Directions hearing 3 weeks ago I ''booked'' 4 periods of 2 days each with one night staying contact.

I chose wed/thursdays on the weeks when I am not due weekend contact so as to spread contact.However I based this on the basis that weekend contact would run as it had been since the contact order awarded at the first hearing.

When I got my second contact order it started weekend contact a week earlier meaning I will now have periods of contact wed/thu followed straightaway by sat/sun.

If I write to the court explaining this is there any chance I could get my weekends to run as per first contact order?

So at the moment you are having contact 4 days together every fortnight, but what you actually wanted to happen was 2 days per week.

I am no expert but cant see it unreasonable to ask the judge to amend the dates to allow you contact every week rather than fortnightly.

Its not every fortnight,it was only on four separate occasions.

I guess I''ll just have to write to court and see what they say.
