What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? CA
Yesterday my daughter received a text from her dad saying, "Tell your mom to check her email."
In the email sent at 3:00pm he asks for a visitation around 7ish. the same night.
#1 I didn't respond immediately as I was frustrated that he had texted our daughter which is against the court order. The kiddos are to initiate all phone contact.
#2 Even if he was allowed to contact I don't feel that he should be using her to get to me.
#3 I don't feel that 4 hours is a reasonable time to request a visitation.
As it turns out....at 3:30pm I received another email from him stating,
"Never mind friend is flaking am done with this will wait till courtdate
will not look good for u limiting our options"
Dad is responsible for finding a supervisor all agree upon. He has two friends that fit that criteria. He has suggested two others, one was a man that the kiddos and I do not know, the other an old friend of mine that I am no longer friends with. Neither of which are an option in my opinion.
Unfortunately due to past circumstances, none of my family would be willing to supervise.
Ultimately I have two questions.
-Reasonable time is not specified on the new orders.
Am I being unreasonable to expect more than 4 hours notice for a visitation request? Our next hearing is in September. Can I or should I ask for orders from that hearing to be more specific?
-Can I possibly be reprimanded for saying "No" to dads two other supervisor suggestions?
Dad was awarded once a week for one hour visitation.
He has exercised 3 out of the 8 available weeks.
The last visitation was for two hours as he took kiddos to breakfast. (I'm ok with that, he was providing a meal and the kiddos wanted more time)
He provided kiddos with a cell phone so that they may call him, now he's texting it.
He and I are to email about visitation, yet my mailbox is filled with rantings on other topics that have nothing to do with the kiddos.
He has no concept of following the court orders. It seems that if I give an inch he takes 10 miles.
Yet, if I don't give an inch, I am considered unreasonable.
