The biol. mother of my two step sons has sole custody of them. However, for the last year and a half, we have shared the time with the boys equally, 50-50. Recently, the biol. mother pulled rank and took the kids over a financial dispute. It was our turn to have the kids for a full week like usual, and she said she would just keep them. (After a few days she claimed it was because the youngest had transition difficulties, and that it would be resolved by keeping them with her. I don't see how a year and a half after this set schedule, the youngest is now having trouble right after our financial dispute). The boys' father, my partner, tried to reason with her and her partner, but had no success. There was so much arguing. They claimed that they will try to sue us for unpaid child support. But I don't think they can do that if we have them half the time. Currently we are waiting to speak to lawyer. Has anyone else gone through this kind of situation? Did you have to go court to deal with it? What did you do?
