My husband has an initiating application for interim & final orders with a family court date for early next year. Since separation with his ex-wife, time with the children has been sporadic at best. (Not his choice). In his application, he is asking for one weekend (every 3 weeks, coinciding with his work roster) and half school holidays. The children live interstate and at this stage, have no problem with the travel. (Just over an hour flight). The children are more than happy to spend time with their father in our home. Are there any reasons that what's being asked for wouldn't be granted? I understand it's all about what's best for the children. However, other than the travel, which isn't as much as some children do, I can't see any negatives. Possibly as they get older and want to socialise with friends that may change. But for the foreseeable future, I see only benefits. So, is there reasons why this may not happen that we aren't seeing? The other parent is strongly against it, but not for reasons directly relating to the children.
