My daughter is 2 and a half years old. She has lived with me since birth, and has gone to her fathers every other weekend since she was 5 months old. She is very happy with me, and she is fine going to him every other weekend. Although, I am unable to drop her off because she will freak out when I leave her there (normal). After two years of things being the same way, her father randomly served me with papers from the court trying to change his access from every other weekend to every other week. My response was no, so we will be going to court. Her father has NEVER paid me one penny towards her, I have never stopped his visits because of non-payment. I have soley supported my daughter financially since day one. She has a very stable home, very happy in her life, & I truly believe she would not be happy with this change. I have gone to college and have a career, her father has not worked since I've known him, not because he is unable, just because he is lazy. He's had his water cut off now for three months. I've never bad talked him to my daughter, I keep things very positive when she goes to him, and each time I pick her up shes ecstatic to come home. I know she loves her father, and I do not plan on changing anything. I just want to know, how possible is it that the courts will give him what he asks for? I'm worried sick at the possibility of it. I could not imagine only seeing my daughter every other week. Please help.
