How do I arrange this custody?

User - posted on 01/26/2012 ( 1 mom has responded )




My oldest daughter is 6. My husband and I have been together since she was 4 months old. She sees her dad twice a month but now I am about to file for divorce. I don't want to take her step dad from her. How do I arrange visitation? I don't want to go every weekend with out her! Her dad just moved across state so visitation may drop to once a month but still I don't know what to do. I can give my soon to be ex that one extra weekend for her and he lives close so he can see her during the week. I want to make sure she gets to see everyone.

I know that it is difficult, but honestly, I don't know that I would want my child staying with their ex-stepfather during the weekends or overnight. Maybe that is just me.

Since he lives close, maybe keep him appraised of her schedule--soccer games and school programs and such and plan for an afternoon every once in a while.

You can't make everyone happy here, and I would just explain the situation to your daughter and soon to be ex.

Good luck.
