Q: If the parenting plan states the father will come from out of state every weekend to see his child, but fails to do so
And then requests for his parents to take the child every single time for his parenting time for over a year, but they refuse to help with his education and co parenting, is the mother obligated to continue to drop the child off to the grandparents for the fathers parenting time?
A: The court ordered parenting time governs what you and the father are to be doing. If you tried to accommodate dad and grandparents then that's fine. But if that arrangement is no longer working then go back to the schedule of the parenting time order. If Dad isn't using his parenting time then you have the option of filing a motion to modify pt and child support to reflect what is actually going on. Grandparents have no obligation to pay for the education or any other costs of the children regardless of how often they see the grandkids.
