    Unfortunately there are a lot of women out there like your ex, who do use their kids to "sit around on welfare/child support" and not have to work.

    That has never been me.

    I think my husband needs to work on adjusting his jobs/shifts. =) It works both ways.

    I actually accommodate him as it is/ changing my work shifts around to accommodate his access with her for pick ups.

    He has always refused to accommodate when it came to his work with us, when we were together and now that we're not.

    I would agree with that. But it's not always a case. Think about forces for example...

    Of course priorities should be reorganized when kid born...

    I was just ask... I respect people who work. I am working since 18 years old. And I meant real work with huge responsibility...

    I think you have to work on adjusting you shifts - it's win win situation ...

    I work regular hours but for my ex it's too much ). Nothing better for kid than mom - no child care - NOTHING. Even my wife mother of 8yo is NO NO ...

    She sit on welfare doing nothing (and in camperacing with parents who work and take care about kids it's nothing). and just confirm to me last time I was her that she is not going to go to work ... Such people pissing me of. especially when I see how much taxes I am paying ...

    So go figure ...

    I work part-time, our daughter attends daycare for 5 hours, while I work. Because her father is unavailable to care for her during my shifts, as he's working himself. (If he had her in daycare for 5-8 hours, I would be fine with it--but not over 12 hours!!)

    Everyone needs to work. I would give him 50/50 if he worked reasonable hours--up to 8 hour shifts, I could accept our daughter being cared for by someone else while he worked daily for that length of time. But I will not agree to her being cared by someone else for over 12 hours dail

    He refuses to negotiate, compromise on extra access, different scheduling. I've offered him extra access on the days he's not working--that way I know our child will not be left with someone else for over 12 hours while in "his care". He refused the extra access I offered on the days he's not working. He'd rather have her during the time he works, so someone else will be watching her and not him, it seems.

    OK lets try again... age you going to sit with kids till they 18? Do you prefer him to be laid of and sit on welfare so he will be available as you request? Just try to think what would be your position if you were in his shoes?

    we just talking here right? Trying to find the truth )

    and aging ask your self hostly if he really make him self available will you sign 50/50 ?

    I think him going for sole custody is a just to make plan B not so bad. Lawyer probably add to it putting something what they know you will not agree so he can drag it as long as possibly to take as much as possible ...

    I've given up on property division or getting the rest of our belongings back. Him refusing to divide property/give our personal belongings back has nothing to do with his access with our child.
    Probably formally you did but looks like it still hurt.

    The issue is that I don't believe our child should be looked after by someone else for over 12 hours, when the child should be in his care. What is the point of a father going for sole or shared custody, when he isn't making himself available to care for the child?
    Well. Just try to look on this from another angle. Does that fact that he working so much reason for you take his rights to care about kid? what you would do if you leave together and both work? My ex claim that why would you want 50/50 access if you at work from 8 - 5 PM... But isn't I deserve some sort of respect that working instead of sitting on Ontario Works what allow me to pay child support? But no I deserve to be punished using kid. But not only me but kid too....

    Why wouldn't you guys try to negotiate 50/50 with right of first refusal?

    Legally, I have always been told that a husband/wife cannot kick their spouse out of the matrimonial home, change the locks and refuse to divide property---But for some reason in our case, he has been allowed to do it.
    Let's not even start here... Legaly both parents have a right's for 50.50 time with their kid. Even more kids have right to equal access to their parents but ...But for some reason in our case, he has been not allowed to have it.

    Legally, I have always been told that a husband/wife cannot kick their spouse out of the matrimonial home, change the locks and refuse to divide property. Which is why I tried to fight it, but in our case, so far, my husband has got away with it and I have accepted that I won't get a thing. (Which is why I obviously need a new lawyer, because my lawyer didn't advise me properly regarding this--she should have told me not to even bring it up/that it didn't matter in our case)

    The issue is that I don't believe our child should be looked after by someone else for over 12 hours, when the child should be in his care. What is the point of a father going for sole or shared custody, when he isn't making himself available to care for the child?

    He refuses to talk to compromise on extra access or do mediation. (At the moment he has access every other weekend for 4 days and one evening on the off-weekend) I will never keep our child from him. I simply want him available for the most part when our child is in his care. Like I said if he worked one 8 hour shift job, I would have no problem, if he had to put our child in day care or have one of his family members babysit during that time. But there is no way I will agree for our child to be in someone else's care for over 12 hours every day of the week, she'd be with him, if he were to get shared custody.

    It's does not mean it's good idea to take this right from him. One thing if you agree to that and he did not want it but it totally different what you are saying ...
    what is your husband request? I am sorry but from what I read so far it's look like you not agree father to take care about kids because he not allow you to get your material things back ...
