Hi

Any advice appreciated. I share care 50 / 50 of my daughter and live alone with her. Her mum lives with her partner and his three children in a three bed house, of which my daughter has her own room, so its overcrowded there. My daughter has been basically living with me for past two weeks for various reasons.

Should see still go back to her mum's house in light of government advice? I dont know what to do as she wants to see her mum obviously but they could still meet and go for walks, video calls etc. My daughter's welfare is obviously paramount and I dont want to expose her to any unnecessary risk from current coronavirus situation.

Thank you.

Hi
I am not sure which advice from the government you are referring too.

What is your relationship with your ex like ? I am assuming that since you have 50:50 care and have had your daughter stay for the last two weeks it can't be too bad. I would suggest speaking to your ex and discuss the situation and options that are open to you.

I have a 50:50 care arrangement, we've switched from half/half each week to one week on, one off (benefits of working from home now), anyone shows sign of infection, the positions are frozen.

There is a risk that you could be accused of using the current situation to change previous arrangements.
