I have an order in place (judge signed agreement/order) where I have visitation rights for my out-of-state 16 year old son that states 20 consecutive days every other month with me, his father. Yet, it stipulates “input from the child” in determining the dates.
His mother’s interpretation of this apparently is that my son can choose whether or not to spend the entire time with me, ie., going on trips with friends’ family overnight for a week out of that period(which of course is becoming very appealing to my son).
Although I am not opposed to him spending time with friends’ families, this clearly takes time away from me, and puts me in a stressful position of either saying ‘no’ or agreeing to alter an agreed court order. Doesn’t seem right at all. Any thoughts?
