    Default Parent Absent for Visitation Using Substitute

    My question involves a child custody case from the State of: Ca


    NCP Parent has every other weekend visits. Now is employed traveling all over the US. Contracts are around 3-4 mos then onto the next job.

    I asked about the weekend visits and he said he would do them or a member of his family would.

    Im just curious on if this is regular can a parent have a substitute for his parenting time? Isnt the purpose to be with there father?

    Also what if a girlfriend is this substitute, he is not giving me a straight answer or telling me who is arriving for the weekend pickups. This last weekend it was his girlfriend.

    We do not have First Right of Refusal

    How does a girlfriend come into play when Im home to care for them and hes not?

    He can let anyone he chooses take care of the child during his parenting time.

    You might consider petitioning for a modification of the parenting plan if this is causing your child distress.

    Does your court order say anything about a known 3rd party picking child up at meeting place? Or can just father do the pick up?

    If the answer is that a 3rd party can pick child up, then I say you need to file for a modification asking for either a ROFR or that his days be cut due to his job.

    ETA: His days be cut, but offer to make them up during a vacation period he may have coming up or Christmas time, or something of that sort. You should still want the child and father to have a relationship even if Dad has a crappy work schedule that makes him miss his weekends.
