ex wants more time

My ex called me up saying he wants more time with the kids. That I am all on board for I think kids benefit greatly from time with both parents. But then my ex said that he doesn't want to do any of the driving back and fourth. He lives an hour away.

I told him I don't mind doing half of the driving but that he has to as well do half of the driving. This is also court ordered for visitation that we do half of the transportation. He wants our child 4 days after school for a few hours and I told him that is fine as long as he agrees to transporting 2 days out of the 4 days. But he refuses.

Advice?

If he's not willing to put in the effort then tough on him.

Looks like he won't get extra time then.

Expliane that is court ordered that you split the trasportaion so if he wants more time he has to be willing to do half the driving. Unless he has a trusted (by both of you) family member that is willing to help out.

So if he really wants more time he will make it happen, its up to him.

I'm all for farther getting as much time as possible, but no. If he is not going to pick child up, sorry.

Our courts say the parent receiving the child is responsible
