so.. my ex, just so you get an idea of what he's like.. we've been@war for the last 7 years. since we broke up when my daughter was a few months old because he hit me. he's been holding a grudge against me ever since. he always fights me on child support, he wants to pay less.. he only sees our daughter 1 day week. I told him I would drop child support completely if he took care of her half the time. he wouldn't agree to that.
anyway, our latest issue is visitation. he's supposed to take our daughter 2 weeks in the summer as per the court order. he tells me he doesn't have vacation days and he won't be taking her. I said, I don't have vacation days either but I take care of her, he should be a parent and figure it out. idk.. just take some responsibility. he responds with "the funny thing about the order is that I don't have to follow it, but you do". hmm. it's almost as if he follows the court order when it's convenient for him, when he wants to he will, and when he doesn't he won't. doesn't seem right.
so now, we get into an argument and he tells me from now on to drop off our daughter at the police station when he's been picking her up from home for the last 2 years. but since we get into a fight, he wants me to go to the station now, knowing it's an inconvenience for me since i don't drive. he does. i think he does it out of spite cuz its the only leverage he really has.
i drew up a petition to modify the court order and i have it ready because i'm just about sick of this.. should i proceed? am i looking at this the right way?
i'm so stressed out....................... i work long ass hours, between work and taking care of our kid and everything, my days are from 7am to 7pm and then i have to deal with this jerkoff on top of that.........
i need an out!!!
