Holiday advice on visitation

Posted by   + Show Post

Hi, struggling this year with the xmas holiday coming up, and the thought of not spending xmas eve with my boys. We have had a xmas eve tradition with my family for the last 10 years, so my night was xmas eve and our boys spent xmas day with their dad.

Dad got remarried last year so now he wants them xmas eve this year. My boys are 17 and 14, they both told him that they want to continue to spend xmas eve with me this year. Their father is dismissing their wishes and just telling us how it is going to be. T

After he got married he took me back to court to reduce child support and change the holidays. The court order is very vague on this years holiday schedule. Again our boys are of age to make their own decision about the holidays, right?

How do I get their dad to see that he is putting them in the middle, because they already told him what they wanted and he isn't listening???

Advice please!!

Depends on what your state rules are. In ND, the kids never get a choice.
