Subject:         problems with ex spending a fair amount of time with our teens...
Date: March 14, 2007 at 9:56 am PST

This may be a weird problem to have, but since the kids' father appeared on the scene 6 months ago after a 4 year absence, he seems satisfied to see the kids just twice a month for no more (and sometimes less) than six hours a time. he said he wanted to reconnect with them and start paying child support. He is doing that voluntarily. He has not requested any overnights.

Well, I'm having major teenage son problems, and I need a break! Months ago exdh said he would take our son "in a minute," if he could, but now that he actually has a house, he is back-pedalling, telling me I just don't understand, he and wifey have plans (I believe it's called 'visiting the in-laws' and so I remain unimpressed), and his house isn't "set up for children." HUH??? If he's got a couch, he's got room for a weekend visitor!

Several days ago I asked him to take our son this weekend, but he put me off for 3 weeks. Apparently I need to put my request in as if he were a babysitter rather than a parent. He needs 2 weeks' advance notice. Of course, imagine how the children feel about this...

Do you think I could take him to court and get a court order that he spend a more fair amount of time with the kids? This is a guy who is very active in his church and ought to be showing a lot more interest in his kids. He knows how much I've been struggling. I don't care how much it inconveniences his new wife. He sure didn't mind inconveniencing me when he left and then abandoned us!!
