Hi! I'm Heather. I've been a practicing attorney for the last 15 years, and I'd be happy to assist you for informational and educational purposes.
Your question is asking about a grey area in the law. Normally, when you would take your visitation, you would not be at your ex's house. Since the visit is at her house, she could argue that the child is under her room, and therefore you should not get the credit. You could argue that you are bring treats and presents to the visit, and taking time off work, to see your child, and therefore you should get credit.
Regarding the therapy, since your ex wife will not be there, presumably, during your session with your child, I think your argument is stronger to get credit for that time.
Does that make sense?
