My x husband and I have been divorced for a little over a year now. Our son was 2 when we split up an will be 4 this August. We have visitation where my x has him Sunday over night and Tuesday overnight. I have him the rest of the time. Everything was going good until Christmas. Christmas Day was the last day my son has gone happily and willingly to his dads. Now every time my x comes to pick him up, my son is hysterical. Runs and hides, screams for me, cries for me, tells my x to get away from him, and it has been so bad that several times I didn't have the heart to make him go. I have no reason to think my son is being abused or anything like that. When I ask my son why he doesn't want to go, I don't get much of anything as far as an answer.tonight my x just took my son anyways even though he was screaming and crying and reaching for me as he was being carried out the door. Because of our agreement I didn't think there was anything I could do. I was in years because it was so heartbreaking. My question is, legally what can I do about this? I'm concerned about the effect this is having psyco logically on my son and if making him go is the wrong thing to do. I feel like he was looking for me to help him tonight and I didn't, I made him go. I don't want him to lose trust in me.Answer Question

I would continue to talk to your son about what is going on. He's four so it could be nothing more than he doesn't want to leave you. Find a time where you're both relaxed like watching a cartoon, coloring, taking a walk and ask him why he feels the way he does. Keep asking at different times if he doesn't give you an answer your fine with.
