I have a 9 year daughter I have been her primary caregiver since my split with her father when she was 1 years old. We were able to co-parent for the last 9 years he has her every other weekend. (I wanted us to have a good relationship for her therefore I did not ask him for $ I didnt want to start conflict). My husband of 2 years (we've been together for 4) got temp orders to another country. I mentioned this news to my daughter's father and he said a bunch of cuss words you cannot take her and hung up the phone. That was in the end of Oct. Ever since she has been a different kid. I have never mentioned these orders to our daughter because they are not for sure. However my EX and his wife are convincing her to live with them and saying I'm trying to keep her away from him. :( He all the sudden wants her more wants to be more involved with everything we went to a court hearing before mediation and he has her every other Thursday-Sunday now and every other Wednesday he's never asked for this until I mentioned the temp. deployment. I'm torn I have no idea what to expect. We have court The beginning of May and mediation this month. Every time my daughter comes home from her dads it takes her a couple days to open up and be nice and a kid again. I wish I would of never tried talking to him about it. Any suggestions on how to handle this...
