Q: A father is telling the mother she can only see the child certain times because he is mad she moved on never married
If no custody agreement has been set besides between the two for every other week and now the dad isn’t ok with it because he is mad they are not together they have never been married he says she only wants the child to see her twice a week on her days off only during the day so the child can stay with his grandparents is this ok?
A: This situation is why court orders exist. File a motion and get a court order for specific parenting time. That way, one person cannot just change their mind. Of course, parents can continue to agree to additions or changes. But an agreement requires two people to agree.
