Elgin, SC asked in Family Law for South Carolina

Q: Do I have to send my son to his fathers if he told me a day before when he wants to get him and I have no milk prepared?

Me and my 1 year old sons father have joint custody me being the primary custodian and him secondary. On our agreement it says he must notify me no later than Sunday when he wants to get him from Friday to Sunday the following weekend. He decided to tell me a day before he wants to come get him and I don’t have enough milk pumped for him for 3 days. Do I still have to send him or does it go against the papers how late he told me? I asked him if we can wait till next Friday so I have time to pump him enough milk but he refuses. Ty in advance.

A: Always follow the parenting plan. If the order is clear on when he needs to provide notice and that notice doesn’t happen, you are not in violation. However, it is important to be very clear on what the order provides so that you are properly protected.
