My ex and I went to court and the court has ordered him to pay child support. He was highly upset so he decided to file a motion saying that I do not let him see our child. There was an instance where I did not let him take her but only because hise father asked that I not take her to his house.
I've ALWAYS let him get her except for those two times. When he texted me about it, I said the reason she couldnt go was because he was handling his responsibilities like a man (financially) and that he needed to step up to the plate before he can see her. I know it was wrong to say that but I was fed up (because he wasn't helping AT ALL).
Anyway, I said all this to say, can I go to jail for those two incidents that I did not let him get her? And also, I NEVER said he couldn't see her, I said he couldn't pick her up. I offered him to come to my house or I offered him to meet me somewhere neutral for him to see her so I never kept him AWAY from her.
With him filing that motion they surely can't throw me in jail?? Especially since he was ordered to pay child support for over a year and he never paid and they didn't lock him up. I'm in the state of Virginia, if that helps. Thanks!
