We are awarded joint legal and physical custody. He gets her every other weekend and Mondays and Tuesdays from 9-3. I'm at work/school Monday to Friday from 9-5 and my dad watches our daughter at my home. My ex just got a full time job where he'll be working from 8-5. He wants to increase his weekday time with her to 2.5 days, but wants his uncle to watch her while he's at work. He says she needs to spend more time with his side of the family. He goes to school at night and usually doesn't get home until 10pm. I'm concerned because he won't be spending time with her and it doesn't make sense for him to ask for more time if he won't be there to care for her. Is this something that the court will grant? I feel like he wants to get more time with her to get out of paying child support.
