Holiday visits withou proper arrangement
I asked my ex husband on 23 August that he must please let me know when in December he would like to have the kids. He never came back to me and I therefor made alternative arrangements for December. Today, 8 December he sent me a message insisting on a date that he can collect the kids. I told him that I made other arrangements but that he can have the kids on 26 December until the school starts in January. He threatened me with the court and said that he will tell the court that I am refusing him to have the kids for the holiday. This attitude from him started because I took him to the maintenance court for not paying maintenance for 7 years. What can I do. I already paid for the kids activities for the holiday
If you have evidence of your conversation on the 23 of August, then you should not be scared. Send him an email telling him of your previous correspondence and why you are unable to comply: He made it impossible for you to comply by his silence. Also indicate that your request for him to pick the kids up on 26 December is not unreasonable. Court threats are what they are, threats. It is costly and takes time, by which it will be 26 December. Unless he intends to bring an urgent application and convince the court that taking the kids now and not on the 26th is urgent.
