I am in court in a few weeks as i have applied to increase my contact:

current contact order (been in place for 2 years):

fri at 3-sun at 6 (alternative weekends)
wed at 3-thurs at 9 (weekly school droppoff)

i am proposing to increase the alternative wekend to mon at 9 (school droppoff)

my ex has just counter applied to redice my contact by removing the wednesday which has been in place for 2 years - no issues have ever been raised with this in 2 years. her argument is it is disruptive to school and has claimed there are concerns (contrary to the school report which is positive).

i am obviously concerned as removal of midwek over night would be so detremental to our relationship - even though it is day to day school routine stuff it has really developed our relationship over the years...

...oh yeah, we had a finding of fact a few years back from which the ex made similar welfare allegations and it was recorded in the findings she was malicious and hostile to father and contact.

anyway, any advice on how this might be seen, what i should perhaps do, i am really stuck on this one???

I think given that this is a settled arrangement she would have to show that it is disruptive to school, rather than just assert that it is.

Presumably she is trying this on because if you are already doing one school drop-off she can''t claim that the additional one you propose will be disruptive on its own.

Best wishes,
