My ex hired an attorney and filed to find me in contempt about a year ago. I got a paper from his attorney the other day saying that a hearing had been set. The allegations are that I refuse my ex visitation with my dd (he is in the military and both times he has been back, I have let him have her MORE then our court order and have text msgs printed out that show he agreed to the extra visits schedule.) It also says I am doing harm to their relationship by forcing my dd to call my "boyfriend" daddy. I have never forced, or even asked my 4 year old to call my FIANCE' "daddy". She started that on her own when she was about 2 (my fiance' had been around 6 months or so), I corrected her everytime she said it and after a few months took her to a family counsoler who said to just let her and not make a big deal about it, which I did. After a couple weeks it stopped until a month or 2 after my ex went into the military and she started it again and hasn't stopped. I talk to my ex about it he gets mad and says things like "do what you want, I dont' care". For the past year, my ex has only called about once a month or so to talk to my dd and yet he says I am damaging his relationship with her. Anyway, I don't have an attorney and can't afford one but is there any advice anyone can give what I should do? I am not too worried because I know I haven't done any of the things he is accusing and I can prove that at least with the visits, he is lying. I am bringing the printed out text msgs with him agreeing to the extra visits (he is saying he didn't get enough while here, though, TBH, I could have just given what was in the court order and that's it). I would appreciate any advice, Thanks

Bring the texts and something from the counselor to cover yourself. If the judge is against your child calling your fiance daddy he will at least see you where given advice from a professional on the matter and you where not doing anything intentionally. You will be fine.
