Over the last month, my husband has left twice, without warning, without saying a word.
The first time he was gone for 4 days and did not reach out to talk to me or our kids. He came back and left again 9 days later.
This time, I have been trying to facilitate contact between him and our children at least daily. He is 10 hours away (in good traffic). I am not sure what will happen between him and I as far as our marriage. But I want to keep him in contact with our kids.
(We have 3 together ages 15, 14 and 9). He messages our 15 year old through messenger often. Our 14 and 9 year old video chat or talk on the phone almost daily. I have made an agreement with him to meet half way for the kids to spend 2 weeks with him. At advice from any of you dads on the page to help keep a positive relationship with our kids?? Thank you so much in advance. ...
So, I have come here multiple times for advice for my SO, as he doesn’t really feel as comfortable opening up to strangers this way.
But his BM has finally started behaving like a normal, civilized coparent. She has given him more time, he has about 48.8% compared to the 35% he used to get, been this way for weeks now.
They’ve discussed adjusting child support to reflect the new custody agreement. She said he should be the one to contact support to lower it, although we feel it would be an easier process if she were the one to initiate that process as ultimately the ball is in her court.
Does anyone have suggestions on how to go about this or know how this works? Getting some sort of financial relief is so imperative right now so please don’t say “just be happy you’re getting more time”, we are extremely happy, but we’re not done fighting for his equal rights yet. And honestly, she seems to be doing everything she can to keep us civil because she knows we have a lot of sort of her so she’s definitely scared.
She has also said she will not fight him on lowering it as he is getting them more now, but she has insinuated she’d wanna go by the new numbers they come up with instead of coming to our own agreement.
Won’t it be easier for her to try to lower it herself than it would be for him to do so? Do they need to have a revised court ordered custody agreement as proof that he’s getting more time now or will they go off of their word? How does this work and what should he expect? Thanks in advance. ...
My friend has a custody hearing this week, he’s the one that went and filed for custody for his 10 month old daughter months ago, his ex girlfriend is making it really difficult for him to see his daughter and being hot and cold, especially when it comes to his current girlfriend, they’ve rescheduled it for the third time last week, the first two times being because of the covid and this last time being because his ex girlfriend hired a lawyer the day before their court date and didn’t let the court know ahead of time. If anyone on her has been through this, do you have any advice? ...
