Today, I get the keys to my new home, and will be moving on Wednesday with our three children aged 8, 6 and 4. Dad will stay in the rented home for now then look for somewhere for himself. He works away, at best three nights a week and this was more despite me begging him to make life better for me and the kids to save our marriage. He could never schedule with us in mind until now. I have, since the birth of our 1st child, been the primary and often sole carer. We are now in discussion about contact arrangements and he seems to want them 50% of the time which is not what they are used to and I don't feel is right for them emotionally! What would be reasonable to offer from the beginning. I have no desire to stop him seeing the children. Thanks in advance.
