Been separated from my husband for two years...no formal arrangements in place for access/child support etc.
Just had a phonecall from exh telling me that he is planning on taking my son out of school for two days midweek. This is to allow him to take my son to visit his grandparents just over 90mins away. The reason for the midweek visit is that the grandparents are busy for the next few weekends and don't want visitors!
So my exh wants me to write to the school and tell them that as he works shifts over the weekend he wants to take my son out of school for two days.
Now I have never taken my son out of school for holidays etc. Before we separated my exh was very critical of relatives that did holiday in term time.
I just don't feel that shift work and busy grandparents justifies taking my son out of school. However my exh is telling me in no uncertain terms that is what is happening.
So in these circumstances who should have the 'final' say? My son lives with me and I am the parent with all the contact with school...so I feel I should be able to veto this. I don't have any friends in RL who are separated so no one to chat with. Hoping that your advice will help me make the right decision.
