But do not go solely on Erica's words. It is possible that he could go to court and ask for the modification and he could also get joint custody. Be prepared for this if he does this but be prepared to explain that on his visitation he shows up once a month and have some sort of documentation of it like written down times on the calender showing what weekends, weekdays, and holidays he was to take her and show that he did nor did not come for her those appointed times. It will help you keep from going to joint custody but if he lives close to you and her like in the same city limits, why would it be a problem to let him have that. In that case she could stay part of the week with him and then with you. Or go one week with him and one week with you. It would allow her to keep a relationship with her father and you and at the same time protect her from being bounced around between parents or not being with one because they chose not to come see the child. What do your court orders on vistation actually say? Does he only get her once a month or does he get her more than that? Do not push him to come and get her, its his decision to do this.

he can always take you to court to modify the agreement. Does he have much of a chance no. I wouldnt worry about it as long as he cant prove you unfit
