I work offshore. I don't have days off anymore sense work has slowed down. I haven't seen my kids over a month due to work and my wife wants the kids a weekend here and there. She asks to have then but my ex asks my daughter (10yrs old) and she says no so her or my son (6) doesn't go. How do I get my kids home more ?
You file a contempt motion if your ex is not obeying the custody order. If there is no custody order, go get one.
If your custody judgment gives the mother a right of first refusal, she may have grounds to keep the children when you are offshore. Bring your judgments to a local attorney and get a consultation.
