My wife and I have been separated for over a year now. In the last year, I have had irregular visitation with my daughter, meaning we didn’t have an actual schedule put in place. I kept my daughter during the work week and weekends sporadically. Alot of factors played into my wife not wanting our daughter with me.
- I had a roommate at the time that the wife didn’t feel comfortable with
- Due to her walking out on me, I had to work overtime at my job to pay bills.
- She only allowed me to keep her certain days (she has having an affair with her boss that visited the area on those certain days)_
We have been through mediation and still she only wants me to have an every other weekend visitation schedule. She insist that I am a great father and will protect and care for our child. I’m trying to seek a visitation schedule of every Monday and Tuesday, with every other weekened, four weeks in the summer, and alternate holidays.
She states that me keeping our child during the workweek will disrupt the childs school schedule. Keep in mind that I live 2 miles from her and my child as well as the school that she attends. Also, I have kept her during workdays in the past. The wife also drops our daughter off with her sister during the work week and she lives 30 minutes away.
My question is does she have a leg to stand on? Am I asking for something unreasonable? I’m just a loving father trying to provide for my daughter. It seems that because of my wife’s bitterness towards me she doesn’t want to give me that chance.
