OK, that makes more sense.



Chances are he got custody of the kids because it came out that you were going to take them out of state. Were you there for the divorce hearing? That may be another reason. Do you have a reasonable visitation order?

Why can't you live closer to your kids and see them more often? Do you have a lawyer? A lawyer would be better able to explain the situation to you and to help you fight any wrong that has been done. I'm sorry. I don't know what else to suggest.

Just trying to clarify, you are telling your child WHY you and his father aren't together? Why does he need to know this detail? What are you wanting to tell him that he would be mad at his dad for? And what do you mean so ar way - did you move a long way from his dad so he couldn't see him or something? I think we need more information before we can help you. But there are things kids don't need to know about their parents' break ups.
