I am currently going through custody issues with my husband ( soon to be ex hopefully) He lives over four hours away in another state and has been in and out of my childs life since she was one year old. He left after her first birthday and was in and out for 2 years. Then we decided to work things out for 3 years and he left again. For the last year and a half he has seen her only 3 times and only contacted her 4 times since January. He has moved in with a woman and gotten her pregnant and suddenly wants the entire summer and all school breaks. His girlfriend has had her children taken away twice for neglect. I am concerned how this would affect my daughter who has no bond with her father and has never been away from me.He always acted like my daughter was a burden rather than a gift and he never wanted this time until i took him to court for child support. I am seeking advice from anyone who has had a similar situation or has had an out of state co parenting situation. I feel he is trying to leave me all of the responsibility of parenting and taking away all of the quality time. Please help!
