Hi all,

Im new to this forum and would like some advice.

I'm currently going through the steps to get consent ordes. Have had mediation and did not reach an agreement. My child's father is asking for 50/50. I am refusing as I believe our child is too young. (2yrs). I work part-time. Ex is a full time and travels for work.

Has anyone been through similar situation? Any advice would be appreciated.

Cheers Coral
