I filed for more time with my son, dad is not happy
Oh gosh where do I start. I suppose I can give the short version for starters.
I knew I never wanted to be with his father, a one night stand and now I have a beautiful son with him. We went to court just after he was born. We agreed we should have a parenting plan in place before I moved out and it was final. We did, he makes a lot more money that me so he hired a lawyer, one that would represent "both of us." Well that did NOT work out to my advantage. He is a very controlling man, he forced, yes forced ( I was mentally controlled by this crazy man at the time), me out of one extra day per week with my son, he verbally agreed to a different schedule which he retracted on immediately leaving me less one day each week. I couldn't afford the private school so he said he would pay for it in return for one of my days with my son. Also, he insisted that we exclude that he was doing this because he was buying a big house and wanted his debt to income to look good so he would get what he wanted. Well, I ignorantly agreed. Here we are a few years later, I'm a much stronger person and mother. I entered a modification for 50/50 equal time.
He has already emailed me several times saying that my request is out of line, he will not budge etc. So, I set up a mediation for us (it's in the original agreement that we would do that). He is telling his lawyer that because I couldn't afford the school before I wont be able to now and it's not in the kids best intereset - when in fact I have been paying for half of the schooling already thus far. Well, I make a lot more now. I have also submitted for child support. (Because it is required in the state of colorado when a modification of parenting time is entered) I want to do one week with me, one week with dad. It's simple, we each get a week at a time. His idea of giving me more time is changing up the schedule, I still would have less time with him. I wish he would just stop being selfish and realize that our son deserves both parents, EQUALLY.
