Hi, I have join custody of my kids son 14 and daughter 15years old i pick up my kids every saturday between 5:30-6pm im always on time to pick them up never late, i pick them up on working hours or have to be somewhere im always telling my kids n there father that i can't wait for so long for them to come out in 15mins the most but they always have me waiting more then 30mins and most of the time their not even home im their waiting already for 15mins n their bearly driving n there parking lot n they still go inside there house to get their stuff they take 15-20 more minuets..or sometimes im waiting and my kids will call me n tell me their dad is going to drop them off my house not to wait for them when i've been waiting already for the pass 15-20mins. So i told their father n my kids that i was only going to give them 15mins to come out n if there not out in 15mins i was going to leave them that i was going to drive away, i think once in a while is ok to wait 30-35mins because there running late but not every saturday that they know i pick them up, so i started doing that driving away if they don't come out wthin the 15mins that i told them, so my kids dad started calling me screaming saying i am going to call the cops on u that u don't even wait 5mins when i know that all this time i have waited 30-35mins n started giving them 15mins.....Then he's calling me so i ignore his calls, My daughter then calls me and tells me my dad said that his going to drop us off but that i have to drop them off the day that is his turn to pick them up. Pls give me some advise on what to do is 15mins enought time to wait and 30mins once in a while cause they r running late....and like i said sometimes there not even home and they will call me telling me don't wait my dad is going to drop us off. I ask their dad that how come we don't change the picking up scheduled if he can drop them off on saturday the day that i have to pick them up and i'll drop them off the day he picks them up cause he never have the kids ready for me when i pick them or his not home with the kids the time i pick them up or they come out really late.
