Need a little advice.
My sons (16 months old) father, has been absent, volentarely, for the last 13 weeks. This has happened once before for 11 weeks, but his then girlfriend forced him to come see his son.
We have an agreement of days/times for visitation and that our contact is to be only via email (so I can have everything logged down, just incase)
Now, the last 13 weeks he has either given silly excuses (like Hospital/Doctors appointments on a Sunday) or given me no notice at all.
Now the problem I'm having, is what to do with this? As childish as it will sound, simply emailing him and asking is out of the question, the only time we email is to confirm visit are going ahead as arranged through my solicitor (no court order, they just gave advice and sent him the letter confirming visit dates)
So, what to do? I've no idea of the 'Absent Father' laws in the UK, and I know 13 weeks isn't a great deal of time compaired to other absent fathers.
Also, I still receive maintenance through CSA and he is on the birth certificate.
Any advice welcome! xx
