We have joint custody with me as the primary custodian.
He has every other weekend and certain holidays. I did a visitation calender based off the court order. The court order stated that the visitation and child support would take effect 1 February (we were in court 30 January.) The actual order was not signed until 9 May, but the judge read aloud in court the order and what was suppose to happen.
I was told that I had to strictly abide by the court order and the judge/court could not do anything about issues that occur when an agreement between us was made that deviated from the court-order (swapping weekends, ect…)
My ex is residing in GA. The last time he saw our son was the weekend of 10 Oct.
He emailed me wanting to pick-up our son this Sunday morning and dropping him off at daycare Tuesday morning. This is officially my weekend; but our son needs to see his dad.
Visitation is suppose to be picking up at the school/daycare after school hours on Friday and dropping off at school/daycare the following Monday for the child to attend school/daycare.
Because of our schedule here and the fact daycare is closed I offered the following:
That he could pick-up our son from the daycare by 5:15 pm Friday night or we could meet at the park in ****** Saturday morning and he had to return our son to daycare by 4:30 pm Monday.
He emailed me stating he would no be in town until Saturday afternoon and that unless I was willing to be more flexible he would take that as a no. I counter offered to meet him SAturday when he came into town.
I know for a fact that he gets off work around 5:00 pm Friday evening and that he has a 4-day weekend (he is military) with SAt, Sun, Mon, Tue off. He has more time to use, but it is not convienent to him.
He does not take our sons life here into consideration and any possible schedule conflicts or that it is officially my weekend.
He has not replied, and probably won’t. I think he will probably contact his attorney stating that I will not allow him to see our son, when I have offered a plan that is not the same as he asked for - he just doesn’t agree with it.
Am I wrong? Am I in contempt?
