I seperated with my ex 5 years ago. She lives in Exeter, and myself in Bristol.

Up until now I have always collected her for simply and easy life.

However, she is now threatening to move to Barnstaple or Portland for her job.

I have said it is unreasonable that I should have to travel 6 hours each way twice a weekend when I have my daughter.

She is refusing point blank. What are my options and what can I call on within law? I have always paid above the legal minimum requirement by 33% in terms of child support and regularly contribute to books and clothing.

Any advice would be welcome.

How likely do you think this is happen. Do you believe it is a genuine move for her job? or to make your contact more difficult.

You can apply for an order from the court to stop her moving, although if she is able to prove its work related I am not sure if you would be successful.

Perhaps send her a email saying that you will need to reduce CM payments in line with CSA assessment if she moves as you will have additional travel costs. Do you think this may make her reconsider?

Can any other wikis help?

I''m not too upset that she is moving. To be honest I''m more upset she is refusing to do any travelling with my daughter at all.

I''m expected to do 2x 7 hour journeys (there and back) twice in a weekend. Heck, she even refuses to drop her at the train station.

I''ve always been fair and now it seems it is being used against me.
