What is the name of your state? CA
I currently live with my son and his father and I want to separate and file for custody. Our son is in daycare during the week but on weekends and every weekday morning and after daycare I have provided the primary care of our 15 month old son.
His father will not accept anything short of 50/50 physical custody. He wants 3 overnights one week, 4 overnights the next week, etc. I feel that this is way too much back and forth for a young child especially since I have been his primary since birth. Is this the standard in California (San Francisco)?
My proposal was two week day nights (back to my by bedtime) and start off with one overnight on the weekend and in a month or so move up to two overnights and eventually three overnights. Is this just a dream?
By the way, ever since I have mentioned that I wanted to separate, my son's father has become "Mr. Involvement" and is trying to monopolize all of his time. If I am holding our son, his father will come over and take him out of my arms. The living conditions have become very strained and tense.
Thanks in advance for the advice.
