Hi All, I have been single since my son was born and me and his father did the every other weekend visitation and a couple of weeks ago it changed to a new 50/50 visitation schedule which I really do not like. This is suppose to be the new "whats best for the child" visitation in my state of Delaware. I hired an attorney who said it would work out in my favor and then when we went to court she stated that it may go in his favor due to him always being involved every other weekend on a consistant basis especially over the past year which looks highly in the court system. Now we have started a new equal schedule where my son goes to his fathers every Sunday-Wednesday and I have him from Wednesday evening-Sunday. I really did not want this kind of schedule but with the way our state has adopted this new guideline I really had no choice. I really do not like this schedule and miss my son terribly as I was the one who devoted the majority of the time to raising our son over the past 2 and a 1/2 years. Has anyone else delt with this? How did you cope with the new 50/50 schedule? I just feel so depressed because my son was my whole world and now our time is so limited now. Everyone keeps telling me it will get better in time, I just don't know how to cope with this new schedule and missing my son.
