drop offs

My ex texted me and asked me from now on when he comes can he pick up our son at my house. I told him no our CO says police station because when he is around me or we talk he is known for verbally abusing me and swearing at me. At the police station he doesn't do that. If he wasn't verbally abusive I would let him come to my house.


Also when he comes to my house he is never on time for drop offs and pick ups. I did compromise with him though. He said 9am was to early for a pick up so I asked him what time works for him and he said 10 so I agreed changing it to 10. He cannot even make it on time for that. Also he never brings him back on time he always shuts his phone off when he has our son. So also the police station fixes all those issues.


Opinions? Did I do the right thing by saying no?

Why can he take you son alone if he is abusive? You are right.

 yes, you did the right thing

If he shuts his phone off when your son is with him then don't accept his calls when your son is with you.

Stick with the police hun.  This is probably a big control issue with him, abusers love to have control over u even when ur not together.  They also dont like losing that control.

I agree and I sure hope he's treating your son right.
