Hi, I’m just seeking advice on what is best for the child at custody exchange time. My daughters mother and I meet at a park for custody exchange, my daughter is always anxious and not wanting to talk to me when she first arrives and likewise does the same to her mum when I drop her back because we have only been doing this for 4 months now. I’m always very positive when dropping her back to mum and try to make the exchange quick because otherwise it drags out, mum however never encourages my daughter to talk to me and usually cuddles her and ignores me for minimum of 20 minutes every drop off and usually sticks around for an hour before letting me leave with her but I do not get that hour back with my daughter. How long should custody exchange take? I just feel as though there has got to be an easier way to do this as I feel as thought it’s not good for my daughter to see her mother ignore me and speak rudely to me when she does have to talk to me.
