I live in Texas. I divorced and then married my current husband who has 2 kids (6 & 3) from a previous marriage. He has a standard possession visitation order. We had been getting the kids pretty regularily and they would always cry to either go home or call their "mommy". The weekends that we were to have the kids, no one looked forward too because we knew how things were always going to be. The mom would make a big deal about them leaving/being away and would send a cell phone with a 5 year old and call all the time promising gifts for them when they return or talk about fun things she is doing without them. We have since talked to her about how we (my current husband and I) feel that it is effecting the kids when we have them. My husband and his ex wife came to the conclusion that they would work out a plan that they thought would be in the best interest of the kids. That is to let the kids decide whether or not they want to come over. Well, that was back in May, it in now October and since then the kids have not wanted to come over. The now 6 yr old call each 1st, 3rd, 5th week to tell her daddy that she doesn't want to come over. He has made some effort to go over one day during his weekend to take them to the park, out to eat, whatever just spend some time with them. The kids (again 6 and 3) have been calling their dad by his real name for sometime now and call their new step-dad "dad" or "daddy". We are torn as to what to do legally and morally. We do not ever want to have to face any allienation of affection charges or have that used against us in an unfavorable judgement to increase childsupport or anything else. Can someone shed some light on the legal rights and how to go about being able to prove that the kids do not want to visit their father do to something going on in their custodial parents (mothers) household.
