I'm not 100% sure if this belongs in this forum since it's not necessarily an "issue", but I was wondering if anyone had any best practices, advice, or come across anything helpful in regards to "clauses" that should be added to a visitation order to protect all parties involved (both parents and child).
For example, my fiancée, her daughter, and I live 45 minutes from her workplace. She gets off work at 3:00PM but the child's daycare facility closes at 5:00PM. Up until recently the child's father was picking her up from daycare on his scheduled visitation weekends at 4:50PM on Fridays. He refused to answer the phone when my fiancée attempted to call him which resulted in her staying in the area for an additional two hours to ensure her daughter was going to be picked up from daycare. Both parents agreed to her being picked up no later than 3:00PM and if the non-custodial parent is more than 30 minutes late and fails to contact the custodial parent, then he forfeits his visitation weekend (it can be made up at the custodial parent's discretion).
I understand that every situation is different, but I would just like to get some feedback. Thanks!
