My ex went into the military about a year and a half ago. After training, he was stationed in South Korea for a year. He will be comming back in a month and plans to take me to court. I can't affor a lawyer but I had a consiltation with one, just to know what to expect. I have told him what my lawyer said and he said his lawyer has confirmed it, and he thinks he is getting a raw deal. She said that because he will be living a state away but still within 280 miles, he is considered "local" so he gets every other weekend and one day during the week (no exta during the summer like he though). He has to drive the whole way because since he lives in the barracks, my dd (4) can't stay with him there so he will have to stay with his mom. The only thing is, he won't be able to come every other weekend (there is no way he will be able to come one day during the week) and the weekends he can come, he has to come after work on friday, he will get off at 5 or 6 and have to drive 4 hours so he won't get here till after she is in bed. Because of this, he won't get her friday nights only saturday. I am also asking for right of first refusal so he can't leave my dd with his mom while he goes out and parties sat night and I am asking for an adjustment period of the months where he only gets her saturday but she comes home at night since she hasn't seen him in a year and both laywers have said I will get it. I think that my ex did this to himself by going into the Army and I think the schedule is perfectly fair, am I right?Answer Question

Is there not anyway that the two of you can work out something different that would benefit both your child and him?

So basically you are sabotaging him even being with his kid period. Friday night he can't take her because he won't get there until after she is asleep. Saturday he can't keep her because she would be with his mom. Um yeah good luck with this one. Ya know, with so many parents out there who don't even want their freaking kids I would think you'd make a little more of an effort to let him see her. I don't know the full story and the history behind you two so all I can do is base what you've said here in my opinion. You seem ungrateful and petty to me. In a world like this I would think you'd be a little more appreciate of the safety you take for granted while someone else (the army) stands in the front lines.
