My ex wants full custody of our children!!! I have full custody of them and have had that established for over 5 years now, since our divorce! Now out of the blue he wants full custody! He has barely been there for them, shows up to nothing, he is behind in child support...for the past five years!!!! I told him NO, and that he will have to take me back to court! I feel he is doing this not for the best interest of our children, I feel it's out of spite and his new wife! He attends nothing that has to deal with our children, PTC, IEP meetings, no recitals, football, baseball games...I mean he didn't bother to call either one of my children on their birthdays! He contributes very little if anything to their education, extracurricular, or even emotinal support to them! I'm very worried as to what he might pull the next he takes the kids for the weekend...I'm in need of advice as of how to handle the situation, I've always tried to remain very civil with him...I've never stopped the kids from going with him I've always encouraged it, even when they don't want to go! I'm a deer caught in headlites right now and I could use some advice on what I should do before they go with him again!!!!! I plan on calling a lawyer to get advice as well, but would really like to get some feedback from anyone who has been through a similar situation!
