”The relationship went on for a few months, but Fiona was convinced that there was something wrong.“John was constantly fretting about his wife, her feelings, and the kids.I didn’t complain as I knew it had been hard for him, but he seemed very reluctant to actually tell people that we were dating.I do not want to sign again before I can get to see them.Is there some law that can help me enforce her to let me see the kids on a regular basis or get them returned to SA on a permanent basis?
How likely is he to get awarded joint custody when his home address is mine and I categorically do not want involved? I couldn't give my new partner enough praise on how she has dealt with the ups and downs in the relationship, divorce and financial matters, unemployment and my children.
We've been divorced since 2005 and she took, with my consent (and an agreement in place for the kids to SKYPE, write and visit me in SA at least twice a year) the 2 kids (then aged 5 and 3yrs)to NZ that same year. Not helping or allowing me to be involved in the kids' live.
I do not want to sign again before i can get to see them.
If you want to make a success of a relationship, it’s worth thinking about whether you’re really ready to in effect take on another woman’s children, even if it’s probably going to be a part-time venture!
One thing you can be faced with when you start to date a recently-separated dad is their guilt.
