Consent orders in place since 2010 with ex husband to see children every 2nd weekend & 1/2 school holidays. Consent orders also stipulate that we are to keep each other informed / consulted about issues impacting the children and specify particular situations. This calendar year I have sent 7 x items of correspondence to my ex (all relating to the children): 3 x about eldest requiring braces and seeking input to the decision making process / 1 x providing children's report cards / 2 x medical issues with kids that impacted the kids for the weekend they were about to spend with him / 1 x advising it was ok for him to call our home phone if he couldn't get hold of the kids on their designated mobile phone number. Yesterday, I received a letter from his solicitor advising that he considers this level of communication to be unnecessary and that I should only contact him in cases of emergency, and if it is a medical emergency, that the medical practitioner should be the only one contacting him! I believe that this is requesting that I breach the terms of the consent orders. I requested a mediation with him about other issues last year and he refused to participate - I don't believe that the answer would be any different if I called for mediation again now. In fact, the letter specifically prevents me from providing his contact details to a 3rd except in the case of an emergency, so I wouldn't even be able to provide his details to a mediator! This letter also stipulated a visitation calendar for 2015 which I have been given no opportunity to provide input to. He has reduced the amount of time that he sees the kids to 53 nights in the year (conveniently above the 52 night threshold for paying more child support). The kids don't enjoy visiting him as his new wife is very nasty both to them and also towards me even though we have never even been introduced. I am absolutely at my wits end about what to do in this circumstance. Do I just send all information relating to the children (e.g. school reports, medical information, etc.) to his solicitor? How should I proceed??
