To give you some background info: My dd and I recently moved to Florida so I could finish school down here. It was a brutal, ugly battle between my ex and I for me to relocate with my dd. Judge sided with me and allowed us to move. Our custody agreement states that he was supposed to have her every 3 months for a period of 2 weeks. Well his visitation time came up and he texted me told me not to com. After 4 months of not hearing from him or him seeing my dd he shows up in florida. He moved down here but lives over 4 hours away. Currently we are meeting up half way every other week and he has her from monday to wednesday. Again he was supposed to have her til friday, but during first visit he couldn't handle it and he cut the time back.
These very long drives are taking a huge toll on my car and my dd ( only 20 months old). I also got a new nursing job (yay me!!!) so I will be working monday thru friday. I told him I couldn't do these days anymore and no surprise here he flipped out at me. Told me i was a horrible mother bc i would be leaving her in daycare for 40 hours a week and that those were the only times that worked for him. Now he is a bartender and lives with his brother. I really dont understand why he can't take her every other weekend and have his brother watch he at night. He doesn't even have to go to work til 9pm. I would like to take it to court down here and have the visitation changed so both of us are held to it. Since I allowed these every other week visits to happen now for about a month will a judge force me to stay with that schedule. There just is absolutely no way i can get down there and get to work on time. If he lived closer it wouldn't be a problem.
I finally get myself back on my feet just to have him knock me down again. feels like i can never be happy
he knew were we lived and choose to move 4 hours away. shouldn't he be responsible for travel. i was when i moved.
sorry for the length needed to vent
