I have a 7yr old boy. My ex and I do not have any kind of court order. I have worked around his work schedule since seperating 5 years ago. At first he worked in town and took our son every second weekend. Then he worked out of town and took him every third week Mon-sun and the Mon to Fri alternating those weeks. In December of 2014 he met his new partner. By March she moved into his home. In April of 2015 he asked if he could have our son every second week while he attended school for three months. I agreed. In that time he refused to pay me the verbally agreed on amount for child support resulting in my having to take him to Child support recalculation. There he was enforced to pay me a much larger amount. He was not happy. He also informed me at that time he has decided to keep our son permanently alternating weeks. That his girlfriend was pregnant and they where going to be a family now. I have since tried to get him to go to mediation to discuss this further. He did not go back to work until December 2015. His new partner has taken the role of driving our son to and from school. He works long hours. Our son goes to bed at 8pm. He arrives home at 7pm and is not there in mornings. I was able to finally get a mediation in february which resulted in zero cooperation of getting the parenting time back to every second weekend. They also live out of town, so they travel a lot to bring our son to school each day. As of this month April/May 2016 he has taken a job out of town. He has now not been home for the last two weeks of his parenting time. Our son has been with new partner. We get along fairly well. My only complaints are she once told me i did not have to stay for our son's swim lessons and that she was offended when I choose to stay. Also she consistently addresses him as My son in front of me and my family when picking up and dropping off. I am in the process of filing a parenting order in court. My question is...do I have a right to not allow our son to be at his dads when he is not home. He has a baby sister now as of March. Will I be jepordizing my case if I do.
