Hello guys, thought i would put this out so that i can get a few opinions...
DS is 5 years old and has just started grade 1, his father and i split about 4 years ago, i have since re married and have an 18month old son and another bub due in may.
DS's father lives 9 hours away from us, and probably sees his son 4 times a year, and when i can i meet him half way with the drive, ie we meet in the middle.
He wants me to put DS on plane as an unacompanied minor, and after alot of thought i have said no as he isnt socially ready for ths, he has problems with his ears on the plane and cries etc...
I have since recieved a letter for a court hearing and he wants me to drop DS off at his house once a month, and if i cant drop him off he wants me to pay for his plane/train/ automobile expenses + loss of wages for days travelling the 18 hour round trip!, all because i wont put him on a plane!! I have offered to meet him half way when i can, but once a month isnt possible with an 18 month old and a baby due in May!!!
He is a single bloke who lives with a friend and is earning $85,000 a year!!!
can i have some constructive critisism on what to do or say please
thanks in advance
