Oxford, MI asked in Child Support for Michigan

Q: What do I do? Traveling during other parents time, I offered him to keep the child he won’t.

We travel back and forth in the winter to ski. For over a year now my ex and I have changed up our parenting time schedule. He is now saying he wants his normal weekends. For that to happen I told him there’s two options we switch weekends or he has the child while we travel. He refused and said I’m violating the court order.

A: You have a few options: 1) can you take the child with you to ski? 2) do you have alternate child care available?

Unless you are able to reach a compromise, the parenting time schedule stands. Depending on how much time you have before your trip, you could see about filing a motion to change parenting time, but your ex isn't obligated to change anything.
