What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? Louisiana
I have a question that I hope someone can help me with. I have a visitation agreement with my ex husband that states we are to give each other 2 weeks notice if we are going on a business or personal trip that will effect our time with the kids (they live with me, visit him every other weekend), or that person is responsible for finding care for the kids. He is constantly in violation of this. Today he emailed me to tell me that he will be out of town on the weekend of the 10th and he'll "get with me" about making up the time. Now, I've been quiet before about this and just accepted it, but it seems that he is taking advantage of that... he misses more weekends with them then he sees them because he "has to go out of town" all the time. When I say "ok, you can take them the following weekend then" He'll come back with "oh I'll be out of town that weekend too" Today I responded with "Since it is within my discretion regarding making up time, especially when you don't give the required 2 weeks notice, you can take them this weekend" (the agreement says make up time is at the discretion and decision of the petitioner which is me). I really wouldn't make much of it, but my husband and I already have plans for the weekend of the 10th that we will now have to cancel and although that isn't a big deal, it does annoy me that it is my ex-husband's weekend and he just decides when he will or won't see his kids with no regard for anyone else - does that make sense? Anyway, he came back with a nice cursing out, telling me what a b*tch I am and that he doesn't have to do a da*n thing he doesn't want to do, etc and so forth. How would you handle this situation? Should I just drop it?
