Contact - another one

Hi

Currently having a few issues with my little ones dad.

He used to see him 2/3 times per week, this was pretty flexible, however he was often late to collect, early to return I.e planned to have him 10-5 but would return for 12-1ish. Often no phone call to say he was returning but would just arrive, minor irritation really.

One day he didn't show, contacted him, he denied he was having him that day, however it was his usual day to have him so unsure why he wouldn't think he was having him confused. Anyway argument ensued with him resulting in saying he no longer wished to see him. This was 3 months ago now. He's now got back in touch wanting contact reinstated, no word of apology for what he has done to our son.

Contact used to be ok, he enjoyed going but was more than happy to come home. Knows me and his dad don't get on and is staring to notice his dad's behaviour towards me isn't great such as asking ' why doesn't my daddy like you? Why is he rude to you'.

Huge back story here of, aggression towards me from his dad, including police involvement.

I guess my question is where to go from here? Reinstate contact and hope he doesn't drop our son again when the mood strikes?

Thanks if you got through all that

Could you do handovers via a third party?

He's 4.

Tried that my brother did them for a while but ex just used it as a platform to vent his issues and grievances.

Can you do handovers in a public place..Inform him you will only wait for 15 minutes then continue on with your day..
