Dear Mr. Perez:
Through this, I wish to request a reduction in working hours for personal / family reasons.

XX in the morning to YY in the morning/afternoon.
The requested duration of this reduction is XX months and I wish it would be effective from the XX of YY of ZZ, so, in order to avoid possible inconvenience, I inform you in advance.
I remain at your disposal for any additional information you need and for any form you need to fill out.
