My husband and the bio mom of my SD have been able to avoid going to court for the last 4 years. They have manage to come to aimacable agreements on child support and visitations. They have signed agreements. Stating my husband has rights to visitation 14 days out of the month. He has agreed to pay full CSP despite this agreement by suggestion of her social assistance worker. Although not in writing he keeps signed receipts.
The agreement (given to her by her SA worker) states she is the costodial parent, but he has rights to visitation 14 days of the month and that neither of them are to estrange their daughter from each other.
Bio is planning on moving SD 4.5 hours away because her new boyfriend wants to move there. She expects my husband to drive 8 hours on the weekend to come get her. And her boyfriend (who doesn't even have a car *yet*) to drive the other 8 hours. So every other weekend my SD will have to spend 8 hours on the road. This is both unfeasible time wise and money wise on both ends.
I don't think she's really thought this through. This will mean he cannot see her as often as the agreement states and will have to spend $120 extra a month in gas money. She will not be able to see her father, brother and sister as often....
The only reason she wants to move is because her boyfriend does... they've only been together for 6 months. This whole situation is ridiculous. I'm sooo angry right now and confused on what can or will happen.
My husband is looking for a lawyer which of course we cannot afford and will have to borrow money for.
