Bm has primary physical custody of 4 year old. They have joint legal. Bm lives 12 hours away (she moved and yes dh tried fighting it). Visitation will be based upon school schedule.
dh would have about 6 days during winter break.
Dh would have about 5 days during spring break.
6 weeks summertime starting the Weekend before Father's Day. (Schedule would be adjusted to when child is out of school when he starts school in a year, school lets out week before Father's Day) This year it is from June 8-July 20. Child goes back to school after Labor Day (mom would have 6.5 weeks).
Total visitation days 52-53 days a year.
Bm last night said she wants summer visitation to change due she wants the child to play sports. Also she said she won't be able to vacation during the summer (not quite sure about that seeing as she gets 6.5 weeks during summer).
Dh is very upset because his time is limited as it is with his son. He told Bm that he could play sports during the school year with her and he could be involved with sport activities with dh during his visitation time.
She wants dh to lose Father's Day. He already loses Veterans Day (he's a veteran), both his bday and the child's bday, Memorial Day, Halloween, thanksgiving.
They have a court date in August to finalize future visitation schedule. Our lawyer said he doubts a judge will make him give up or change visitation especially when it is around Father's Day. Dh doesn't want his son to miss things but there are many activities where we live that run during the summer visitation time he would be visiting. We live in a very kid friendly activity area.
We do have a lawyer. Anyone with any positive tidbits I could pass on to dh to help his case?
