If an Ex tries to see their child from a former marriage, but the former spouse makes things impossible for the other parent to see the child(example), not putting the child on a plane 3 times for visitation even though ex has purchased and sent former spouse tickets well in advance(6 months), and then the former spouse refuses to meet half way but out of the blue drops child off for one visitation (14 hour drive both ways), but then refuses to pick child up as previously agreed upon. Will a judge see it as the ex not trying to be there for the child. Average time between allowed communication with child that former spouse is 5-7 days, pays 1200 a month in child support for 1 child every month, has never been late. EX calls daily leaving messages for child. What can be used as a good defense on why the Ex should get full custody, if the judge says that the three missed vistations made it to long between physically seeing the child aprox. 1 year. Former spouse has a case history of marital adult maltreatment of Ex, and has even taken child to an exchange location after knowing that Ex would not be there because former spouse refused to give entire visitation time, and threatened to call Police if Ex does not bring child back 2 days early. Waited at location with child 4 hours and had child call ex crying. No calls on Holidays, no calls to grandparents on EX's side of family. ETC. Most importantly child has health issues not addressed by former spouse.
Vistation agreement does not have anything about either ex or former spouses role in travel arrangements.
