I am the custodial parent of my daughter whom will be 5 years old this month. Her father does not have much to do with her and does not go by his visitation rights, he just wants her when itís convenient for him, and even when she goes to see him, and he does not take care of her at all. He has a pit bull, a rockwhiler and a red tail boa constrictor snake (my daughter is terrified by them). He lives in Florida, we live in Georgia. I am remarried and my husband now is in the military. We are moving to another location in Georgia, which is approximately 5 hours away from my current location in Georgia now. My daughterís biological father is living 2 ours at the most away from us now. He called on Christmas and that day I was sick with a virus and ended up in the emergency room. (Donít worry, I'm trying to get to the point, but right now I am HOT).... He got mad b/c I did not "let" my daughter call him on that day. Isn't it his place to call anyway?? He calls me from a private number about an hour ago, for the first time since
December the 26th saying that he got Legal advice saying that for him to go as long as he could without calling her for a month. What is this about? Okay, I really need some advice. He's saying that he has phone records that I did not call him to let our daughter talk to him for a month. Letís not mention that he hardly ever calls her anyway. His motorcycle is in my fatherís name, which he was supposed to take care of that after the divorce, which was almost 3 years ago. He was supposed to pay alimony of 150$ even after I was remarried and did not and pay for my insurance, but never did (he is military, too) - I have almost 7,000$ in doctor bills that he did not pay and he agreed to it. I have bent over backwards to try to help my ex out by taking our daughter to him, the times that he did want to see her and meeting him half way and it's not my place to, but I am not a mean person. It seems now; I am going to have to be. My husband now wants to adopt my daughter, and I even mentioned this to my ex on the phone when he called today (Feb 2nd). He said it's an insult and if he was a dead beat dad, he could understand, but that it's not happening. What do you call him then? He doesn't care anything about her. I just need some advice and right now I am so mad that I'm just typing everything that comes to my mind, so this probably doesn't make much sense, but will someone PLEASE help me.
Thank you .... Very much.:mad:
