Visitation Issues

My husband's ex girlfriend and I had a disagreement. Her way of getting back at him is to not to allow me to pick up my step son. She told him if he can't pick him up himself then he would not be able to get visitation that weekend. Is this legal?

If it's his court ordered visitation time and she doesn't hand her son over to your husband she is in violation and can be held in contempt.

She has no problem handing him over to him. It's that she says I can not pick him up.

But she's talking about handing the child over to the father's wife, not the father.

It might be legal. Why can't your husband go get the child himself?

What was the argument about?

It all depends on how specific their custody order is. If step-mom is not authorized to pick the child up then biomom doesn't have to hand the child over.

It depends on what your county's standard reads.

Are you in their orders for pick up?

Where can I find the county standards? Should I consult an attorney?

wouldn't the simplest thing be to just have your husband go pick up his child himself? Why is he unable to go himself?
