My ex has really managed to get under my skin again with my son. Unfortunately, I am in NY and she is in Florida. Our divorce agreement has us with a 50/50 custody arrangement. I know since I moved out of fl that is really not possible. Our divorce also had no support going on bc of the 50/50 arrangement. The latest thing she is pulling is that she is not letring me see my son over the holidays. She kept him for thanksgiving, and now she is keeping him over christmas as well. Her logic is that he has misbehaved in scbool and doesn't deserve to come see me. She says because I have not paid any support since becoming unemployed that I am not being a good father. My son wants to come to live here, but doesn't want to have to deal with all her bs. She is bipolar but isn't taking any medicine, and her moods will change on a dime and giver you .08 cents change. How can I get to see my son over christmas? I forgot to say my son is 16.
