I have physical custody of my six year old.her dad lives 6 hours away in another state. She is suppose to go to her dads the last weekend of every month and we are suppose to meet half way for drop offs. It is becoming financially hard to make these trips every month and he does not meet me half way when he drops her back off. He does not pay child support and he claims taxes every year. He gets her every other holiday, every school break and the whole summer break.I have to drive and extra hour to go get her. There are lots of little things in out current order that we argue about all the time. I feel that if everything is more spesific we would not fight as much and life would be less stressful for every one, I can't afford a lawyer but want to make these changes to the current order. I'm always scared to go against him in anything that will upset him to the point I panic and back down. He has a history of domestic violence. What are my chances that the judge will see my point of view? I want my child to have a great relationship with her father and I'm not looking to talk bad about him at all. I just want things to be fair and easy for our daughter and financially do-able.... Any advise or thoughts??
