After my divorce I moved 250 miles away from my ex and my 5 year old son.
To facilitate contact, I bought a house near my ex wife (12 miles away). I therefore have 2 mortgages.
I travel up every other weeekend for weekend contact and have him at least 3/4 weeks in school holidays.
My ex refuses to assist in any way with transport to facilitate contact - including dropping my son at the nearby train station so i can pick him up there.
Am I being un reasonable in expecting this? She has lied before about being out of the country to avoid doing this.
Would going to court help? I feel like going to court as she generally treats me like dirt and is awkward about everything. Recently she took a weekend away from me with no negotiation at all because it suits her to go away on one of my weekends.
I honestly bleieve her behaviour is affecting my son's welfare.
I sympathise with you.Just her petty point scoring mate that's frustrating the feck out of you.
Bigger picture you've bought a house 12 miles from her even though u work 250 miles away.
You travel the 250 miles every other weekend to see your kid and the xxxx knows that so gets supreme satisfaction by not moving her rse of the setee to take him to the front door even to help out on transport.
Personally if I was doing what you do I'd think feck it I would do it all and not give her the satisfaction of knowing that her fecking supreme petiness actually got up my nose so much,as it indeed must.
al the best
bigvee, they have all said it, and I experienced it, they do it all on purpose mate and you aint never going to gain anything, certainly dont expect anything.
Make sure your diary is up to date and that you have all the info, if I was a judge I would be very impressed at the fact you bought a house to facilitate seeign your son, so go lip and get it son, you owe it to your son and your future relationship with him.
best of luck
