I need some legal advice and maybe to vent a little. This is my weekend to get my kids and my ex is giving me a hard time cause I won't send my 5 month expecting wife down 2 hours in 10" of snow to meet her. I have to work tonight, as I do every friday night. So, I tell her we will come down in the morning after I get off work and shes like what ever I am done with your excuses- working sleeping or whatever. So I told her my schedual has been the same for the last 2 years and I am not calling in sick. It would be much safer to wait. Now she says she won't meet me halfway anymore (which I was giving her $20 cash for gas). She said I would have to come all the way to her place which is almost 3 hours from here. Now, I pay child support and give her gas money to meet me, but we do not have any "court ordered" visitation agreements. Shis will change soon. Thing is that I would like nothing better than to have them come live with us. I know for a fact that my daughter wants to as the last 2 times she was crying as I was takeing her back to her mom and she has told me so. The mother says that they have been living with her since day 1 and will continue to do so untill the kids are old enough to make that deccision on their own. How old is that? 18? I really have nothing legally negative about where they live now, but I know that they would have better opportunities living with me. Currently they live in a 2 bedroom trailer with another brother which makes a total of 5 people and maybe more. They are econmically challenged, and live 20 miles from school. Neither one of the adults hold full time jobs, and I believe they live mostly off the child support I provide. Is there any chance that I can get custody of them? Ask me anything you want about this.
