Overnight/holiday shared parenting ?

Add Topic

We are discussing the accommodation/care of our children in relation to his residence. Does he need to provide me with an address of his residence for the primary purpose of the children staying with him?

I am sorry if this is in the wrong section - I am really trying to find my way around this forum, but to say I am intimidated is an understatement!

My ex & I are currently trying to establish a parenting plan & trying, as much as possible, to keep it pleasant & amicable - avoiding court if we can.

I have a very simple question.

We are discussing the accommodation/care of our children in relation to his residence.

Does he need to provide me with an address of his residence for the primary purpose of the children staying with him?
Does anyone have any clue on this aspect?
Unless there are extenuating circumstances, then, the general rule is that both parents should supply an address and phone details in case of emergencies etc.

Thanks Monaro - no extenuating circumstances - he just refuses to divulge.
At this stage, the children have not stayed with him overnight, but with school holidays approaching soon, it will be a real possibility.
Just wondered if anyone actually KNEW?

I have been searching all day (- hence how I found this forum) for any documented information on this point.
I am trying to keep my *emotion* out of the situation, but to not know where my children actually are seems to be a bit ridiculous?

Firstly as you have no court orders he does not have to do anything and neither do you. However trying to put a parenting plan together and avoiding court seems to suggest a degree of cooperation. It is reasonable to have an adddress for where the children are to be residing with either parent. What is the reason for withholding that address I wonder? Perhaps he is staying with a friend who he does not want you to be aware of? I would agree with you it is quite ridiculous and hardly in the spirit of putting a parenting plan together. ALL of our parenting plans require the parents to disclose address and phone contact numbers.

This does not auger well for a resolution…
