Does any one meet with their ex to do a child exchange at a public location?

My husbands ex simply refused to meet at a local place nearby where she lives, its only because she hasnt been home the past 3 x for visits. and visits are very important to keep. Any suggestions for documentations? we text her letting her know we're there and she blocks us from texting or the text doesnt go through it comes back. anything we can do to improve this situation without always going to court and puttin down 500 bucks? :(

I did meet my ex in a car park at the polic station for a couple of years at one stage. But I can't see how this is going to work for you. If she refuses to be at home for the visits, I hardly think she is going to meet you somewhere else. This sounds like manipulation (on her part) at it's finest. I'd turn up at her home and collect the child there. And if she isn't there to deliberately avoid you, then go off, do something for a bit, and come back. She can't stay away forever. I have no other suggestion. here we could file for contempt of court if she violated the orders, and I don't think there is a cost involved in that, you just have to have your evidence (i.e. diarise everything).

We meet at the airport, but that's cuz my ex has to fly over to pick the kids up (until our almost 4 year old turns 5... then the kids will fly alone). ;)

If she's not being reasonable you can try mediation before going back to court. Unfortunately, if she's STILL not being reasonable... your only option is to keep documenting and take her to court.
