you do not need to do anything other than the court order directs. you can tell him you need to follow the order or he needs to go back to court to have it changed - also, if you do not want him picking up the child then make sure your daycare provider has a written note that the child should not be released to him under any circumstances, if that is what you prefer. as long as you are upholding the court order and allowing him the Friday visit, you're good
currently, your life and that of your childs is good, right? so what ever concerns he is having with the Friday visits are his problem and he will need to take the matter to court to have it changed. you only need to follow the order as it is written.
I am trying to work with this guy in seeing his son more but feel it is only because he (the father) now has too much time on his hands. I do not want to come across as being unreasonable and have even offered the father to pick up the child from daycare at 11am (instead of 12pm) as he was falling asleep in his car and then had difficulty getting him back to sleep. So this way, he would feed him lunch and then put him down for a nap but he has not responded.So I do not feel that he wants the obligation of feeding him but than again I am not too sure as he will not communicate with me (only nasty emails).
well, you will do what is best for your child, i am sure. and your out is always that you need to follow the court order -
i understand. and it would be disruptive. you also can ask the daycare provider to back you up on that. dont hestitate to use the court order in your child's favor.
