Joint custody cause it was easiest, still not certain I want the headache of asking for sole custody because he never sees them anyway.
I know legally I should not deny him any parenting time, so how do I buffer the 'dad wants to take you at the drop of a hat last time he saw you was six months ago' regardless of what's going on in our lives? The few times he sees them they are depressed lumps of nothingness and I want to scream at him look what you're doing to them!!! (I have remarried and this even hurts their stepdad and stepsister)
He promises them gifts they'll never get to use because they'll stay at his house (lives with his folks) and buys what he can with the money under the table, (child support comes from unemployment do I report him?!)
SO FED UP!!!
