My fiance has a one year old son. His ex denies him visitation and over the silliest things. If it is a holiday then she denies visitation. She always blames everyone else for it. If she wants the baby to go somewhere with her, she denies visits. And doesn't allow make up time. If her boyfriend says he doesn't want the visits to happen, she denies it. This has happened every holiday since the baby was born. She has said that she doesn't want the baby to think I am his mother and that's why my fiance can't see him. I explained that I don't want to take her place and she doesn't care. They went to court once, and the judge simply said "she has motherly instinct and that is why she denies visits." He didn't even ask why she denied it and he refused to hear evidence. So what I want to know is, why do custodial parents think they have the right to deny visitation? She actually told my fiance that him not dating her gave her automatic rights to deny visits. Why do custodial parents believe they are allowed to break court orders? If you are a custodal parent who has done this type of stuff I am honestly curious about this. Do people honestly believe that denying visitation over small things is okay? I understand if your kid says they were abused or your childs father is abusive. But what makes people think they have the right to tell a parent they can't see their child because they are jealous?? Sorry if I started ranting a little. But I am really curious..
