My ex husband and I entered a seperation agreement in April of 2006. In that agreement it states he is entitled visitation the 1st and 3rd weekend of each month commencing May 5th 2006. Then is has the holiday vistation etc listed.
He picked her up from my care on May the 5th 2006 only to call me on May the 6th at 6pm stating he could not get our daughter to go to sleep or to stop crying. She was 14 months old at the time. I drove in a horrible thunderstorm the 45 mins to where he was and picked her up when he called again at 8pm with the same complaint.
He since then has not excercised his visitation rights, making it 11 months since he has last seen his daughter. Now we are divorced as of 3/21/07 and he wants to pick her up for the first time since May 06 and take her out of state to VA to visit his new girlfriend. My I add that I gave birth to our daughter while he was on deployment in Iraq… He came home when she was 7 months old, and left me for another woman when she was 9 months old. From 9 months old to the ONE visit in May he did not see her at all. Always blaming various girlfriends and drunken nights. He drives a Corvette, has numberous speeding tickets, and I truly fear that not only is she in harm being in the front seat of his Corvette, but she has never had an overnight away from me at all. Nor has she interacted with him since May.
Is there anything I can do “NOW” or do I have to let him take her while I wait on my Motion to Modify Custody? He has gone through 9 girlfriends during our seperation period and I feel this is just not a safe situation for my child. I have contacted the local police department (as he told me he would call them if I refuse him the visitation, per sep agreement) And they said there is nothing I can do, they would let him take her. I also want to add it is not only his weekend but by chance his easter as well. I’m not against him having a relationship with our child. I’m against him taking her out of state. The problem is, it was never stated in the sep agreement that he could take her. Is there anything I can do?
