Thanks for your professional opinion on my last post. I have yet another couple questions to help deal with the stress in my life…
The custody agreement from Jan 2010 with my wife states the children live with me and she has them as follows:
Tues - 4-7
Alternating Weekends from Fri 4pm to Mon 8:30am,
(temporarily Sat 8:30-11:30am Sun 8:30-11:30am until such time suitable housing is secured)
She has never taken the 2 kids for the weekends for the past 3 months, as she says she does not have the room for them. I am unable to confirm this, as she refuses to disclose where she is living. Question 1: what is adequate time to secure suitable housing? What should I do to put a deadline to this? Our custody agreement was signed mid Jan at the dismissisal of the DVPO hearing.
She now states she wants to give the kids “a break” and not do Sat and Sun mornings, stating the children have asked her to do this. We have an agreement that she will not return to our house and is only allowed on the public roadway at the end of the driveway. She regualarly drives by the house, almost stalking manner and will stop by unannounced, mostly during meal times and calls from the end of the driveway demanding that I send the kids out to see her. Question 2: Should I continue to let this happen? I believe she just wants casual -at her convenience- 15-20 minute visits with the kids. She stresses when she has both of them for 3 hours at a time, as she does not know what to do with them.
