What can we expect for father’s rights/moving/nightmare ex wife? Help!
We are moving 2 hours away from where my husband's son lives. A year ago, we moved 3 hours away due to careers and no other real choice unless we wanted to go homeless and hungry without jobs, so 2 hours is an improvement. My husband previously had 50/50 custody, but ex wife is mean, bullying, harassing, and every other thing you can really think of and it has only gotten worse and worse. We try not to communicate with her unless it is documented at this point because of the horrible things she and her husband say to us. We are generally non confrontational and nearly every interaction with her is met with her anger, attitude, and bitterness. We recently got a good lawyer on retainer who specializes in father's rights. We are going to attempt to change the parenting plan to include more weekends with dad, more time in the summer and school breaks, and a neutral drop off and pick up location because going to her home is a nightmare and is stressful for everyone involved.
Has anyone had experience with this? What can we expect? Dad would love full custody but mom just wants to rub it in his face that she has him a few extra days during the week through school, but doesn't want to give us extra time to make up for the fact. We love our son/stepson. Is this going to be hell or does the legal system allow for fairness truly?
