The order states,
“The Plaintiff should be allowed to exercise supervised visits with the minor child…all visits with the minor child shall be supervised by a third party.”
I am the custodial parent.The order specifies that the visits shall take place twice a month on alternating weeks, and they are coordinated through an independent agency in a county an hour away from either parent. Child support is unpaid (the father is employed), and I pay the agency to host the visits and maintain records. These visits have occurred regularly since the father was released from jail (drugs).
The last visit was in November, on a Wednesday as previously agreed. I work two part time jobs and I have coordinated my work schedule and my daughter’s school and after-school schedules to allow the Wednesday visits. We agreed to take off the month of December as my daughter and I travel during the holidays, and we agreed to resume the second Wednesday of January (the 13th).
I was informed by the agency last Saturday morning that the father has changed jobs and moved, and is now employed on Wednesday evenings, and has requested to reschedule the visits. I am unable to do so, due to my work schedule. I have spoken with both employers this morning. Each stated that the terms of my employment require my hours to remain the same, and if I am unable to work any of the scheduled days my employment may be terminated.
Am I required to comply with the request to reschedule? I do not want to go to court with this.
Thank you for your time, and thank you for providing this extensive website and forum. I refer people to this resource frequently.
