My wife and I have recently separated. We have a 6 month old son. We have tried mediation but after 2wks of a temporary 6wk plan she has put an end to it and stopped working with the mediator. She is now only interested in one access suggestion...hers.
She is only willing to offer me a midweek 3-4hr visit and a 24hr overnight visit (states not a minute more....time of pickup is time dropped back off), she is not open to compromise or discuss anything else.
The midweek visit does not work as even the mediator has said this to her, I live 1hr 30mins away as I had to move out of the family home due to her physically assaulting me on 3 occasions all while the child was either in my arms or hers. There is also over time the times she throated to kill me, stab me, threw bowls, glasses, tea, water and even the childs bottle at me while feeding him. Needless to say she has a anger issue and her family have also said the same thing about her to me....her dad has even told me he does not even like visiting the house when she is there as she just argues with him over the smallest thing.
I now have to go to court to get any type of access but what do I do in the meantime to get bonding time with my son?
Once I prove I can look after the child?? Such a comment to make to someone. I have been there from the day he was born and plan was that I will give up my job and be a full time dad while she returns to work. I am more than able to look after my child!!
