He lives 126 miles from where we live. We have 2 boys together, and he wants me to drive halfway to meet him on his visits. He's way behind on support, doesn't carry court ordered ins, and moved out of state without informing the court, when we were going through our divorce. I was granted sole physical custody, and he just has visits at my discretion. Would you drive that far so he could see them, or would you insist that he drives all the way to pick them up 2 weekends a month? Just curious to see what ya'll would do. Thanks. BTW, I have been driving half way for 4 yrs now, and getting ready to change it.

I wouldn't do it. He chose to move so far away, he isn't following any of the court orders, he doesn't pay child support, etc. etc. etc. I would NOT go out of my way for someone who has shown over and over again that his children are not a priority in his life.

On what you said.. I would not do it. (the driving). I would not let him come get the kids either. Sense he is not doing what the court said. Or informed the court of the move. You said visitation was at your discretion,,,make him come visit at your house. That's all.
