My 9 year old has just informed me she goes in cars without car seats when with her dad. Does anyone know where I stand in regards to safety with this as to me it is a major thing but no idea where I would stand in terms of visitation etc with it?
Many thanks in advance.

How tall is she? If she is 135 cm or more, she doesn't have to have a car seat. I don't think this is an issue that can affect visitation.

She is not at the legal height yet hence why she is still using them and the reason one was left at last visit.I don't see how it can't be an issue as to me it is a big safety issue.I don't want to stop contact but at the same time what to know she is safe.Thank u for the reply.x

If she is not 135cm tall or under age 11, legally she needs a booster. These are pretty cheap - if you point out to your ex h that its the law and he's currently breaking it, and your DD knows she needs this, can't he just get one??

Can you give your dd a booster to take on visits with her?

Thanks for the replies.She does know she needs one and I did leave one this visit as he asked me to do so and I wanted to insure her safety.His family also have them in their cars as they do a lot of the ferrying around but they had left hers at home aso got the bus but got a family member to collect them and gave the car seat in the car to the girlfriends child.I have pointed it.out to him and been told I need to grow up.Again thank you for the replies.x
