Visitation
« on: Dec 27, 2004, 10:33:00 AM »
Hello, all
My son's mother and I have a verbal agreement to share custody with our son.  I was late to pick him up Christmas Eve (I was to be there at 7:00 pm  but I got there at 9:00 pm) and she denied me my visitation and said come back at 11:00 pm.  I thought this is too late and out rageous.  So I ultimately told her I would pick him up Christmas morning.  On Christmas I called before I was to pick him up, but she said they had left town.  That Sunday she said I could get him if I made it to her house by noon.  I was over a hundred mile away from and it was already 10:30.  I didn't get him Sunday.  I called her monday morning and said I would pick him up on Friday.  Our custody agreement is to have him 50% of the time and we pick/drop off every friday (typically).  She now will not allow me to see him at all and said you will see him when we go to court.  What should I do?  Does any know?

Do you have a court date? What if any visitation papers do you have now?

Are you still married?

If you’re married why are you not living in the house?

We need some background on this.


No matter where you are in you Custody CASE you must Document, Document and Document.

Thank you for the website-I hae been there today and looking further.

No we were never married-I had to evict her because the relationship was becoming physically and mentally abusive to myself her and especially our son.  So I evicted her after asking her to leave for 8 months and not receiving 1/2 of the mortgage (my house) and having her say the only way I will leave is if you evict me or when I am good and ready.

I will go and file for Joint Legal/Physical custody so I will have rights to my son's upbringing-I will let her file for child support.  Do you think that would be a good way to start.

I strongly recommend an attorney if you are unfamiliar with Family Court. Have you documented your time with your son? Can you show a paper trail of care giving? Doctor appointments, school, things like that. Without a CO in place, she can deny you.

What State?

Why did you miss the pick up? If you don't mind my asking...

Yes I have recepts from his daycare that I take him to-I do ahave a paper trail of my care for him.  Christamas Eve my parents car broke down in they were out in the cold.  So I had to make a choice, get them takle them home then pick up my son and be late or leave my parents out in the cold and get my son then go get my parents.

Oh I was l;ate to pick him up I didn't miss it, but even when I got there she would open the door.  She told me since I made her miss here appt. I had to wait untill 11:00 pm whilel she just sat in the house with my son looking out the window at me.

Gosh, you sound like you have the twin of my PBFH. even 5 minutes late and I would have been denied too.

You had a very good reason. I was just wondering. Since she went to a great pain to deny you. Did you think to stop and get gas, get a receipt in her town.

How old is your son? Bet he did not favor her doing this...
