You can stay at home dad...

A family law judge recently decided that a father, who has full time care of his 11 year old daughter, should move out of his home so that the girl's mother, who lives in Bulgaria, could stay there while visiting their daughter.
This meant not only the father but his new partner and their child having to find somewhere to stay during the visit.
Fortunately a higher court has overturned this decision and they can can stay in their home.
The court can make requirements in connection with a parent seeing a child after a divorce or separation if they think it in the child's interests. This might be where they should meet or who else can be present. Moving out of your home was not considered to be one.
