This post contains the simplest of messages. But dads…please take it on board!
When you are in the middle of divorce/separation proceedings and wanting to secure regular meaningful contact with your children you have to behave impeccably.
The mailbox monster will be driving you bonkers, friends of your ex may be spreading rumours which aren’t correct. Your ex herself may be behaving in a way which is damaging your relationship with your children in all sorts of ways.
Your very masculinity will be under stress and strain.
But at this very point – when you find yourself sinking in the quicksand that is the British legal system you have to stop kicking and screaming. Rather, you must lie low and ask for help and support.
Here at OnlyDads we know how hard that is. But at stake is your life-long relationship with your children. Help and support is there. From friends and family, from numerous organisations like ours and Dadshouse and mediators and family solicitors.
It will be worth it….!
