  • The first and third weekend of every month, or when they want to go. Sometimes they just want to stay home and relax. It's quite a dirve to meet him half way, and after a long school week, they like to stay home. I try to encourage them to go, but sometimes I just have them call him and tell him they want to stay home, and he understands. They also spend some holidays with him, and a couple weeks in the Summer, if they don't have sports obligations.

  • Zero. I have no idea where he lives. He hasn't seen his child in over two years.

  • my dd is grown now but once she was school age she went there only every other weekend. He was a pretty good dad, it was just that with school it was just nicer for her to not be dragged back and forth all the time. She still has a great relationship with her dad. My dh used to have his dd 3 days a week and it was terrible. Now she comes eow and things are good. I think that sometimes going back and forth so much the kids end up not feeling stable and then there can be behavior problems. JMO

  • He gets our son every other week. We have 50/50 custody but I am labeled as primary since our son goes to school in my county.
