Isn't it normally the other way around...the recieving parent is responsible for transportation if its split? In any case, I don't see where it was implied that dad was the one who was going to fly back with the kids.Ohiogal said:You dont' share it jointly if you expect him to fly to TX to pick up the kids and fly back with them. Sharing it jointly would mean you would have the children up to their dad and he would fly them back to you.You stated you didn't have to take the children to the gate but you did because you respect him. Ummm.. no. You got pregnant by another man while married to him -- that is not respect.
Oh and just to let you know, don't be surprised if there is a restraining order on removing the children from NY at this juncture until the divorce is finalized. That is extremely normal. The children will remain under NY courts until the divorce and custody are settled.
In response to another post....
Yes, she obviously got pregnant quickly, but its not that odd. She moves back home, meets up with an old friend/boyfriend and "opps" gets pregnant....then decides to move in with him because she is pregnant.
Looking at the timeline I suspect that is the motivation for dad's current actions. He is probably raw enough from the separation that he is not dealing with this pregnancy well.
It does seem to me though that its flimsy grounds for emergency custody.....just months after he signed an agreement that she would have primary custody and giving permission for her to move to TX with the kids. It wouldn't fly in my state....but others know more about NY law than I do.
