My ex and I have a 5 year old son whom I have primary custody of and we share joint legal custody. She gets him for visits every other weekend for 48 hours and some rotated holidays. She is scheduled to have our son this weekend starting at 6pm Friday night. He happens to have a school play at 1:45 the same day that we've invited her to attend. She is demanding I change the time and allow her to take him as soon as the play is over instead of her ordered time of 6pm. I declined because I have plans to take my son out later that day before her sceduled visit. She told me "You're being a dick" when I declined and said she was taking him anyway and didn't care if I liked it or not. She is only granted custodial time on the weekends. Can she take him against my wishes?The school has said they will NOT allow her to remove him from the school without my written permission since I am the one with primary custody. I've been told in the past to never deviaite from the custody order unless it's a dire emergency. Am I obligated to allow the change? She's now stated she will refuse to come unless I let her do what she wants.
