My husbands divorce decree states that for mother's day weekend, his ex gets their son starting at Friday 6pm of that weekend. Here's the problem, since the existence of the decree (3 years) we have never followed that rule for Mother's or Father's Day and several other things in the decree as well. We have one week on, one week off visitation. Mothers Day weekend happens to be on our week, so seeing as how we have never followed the decree I didn't even think about not making plans that weekend. We have tickets to a major league baseball game and also a coming home party for a military friend that weekend. My husbands ex has decided this year, one week before, that she wants to follow the decree and get him on Friday at 6pm regardless of the fact that we have never done that and we have plans involving my step son. She is threatening us legally if we don't follow the decree. Is the ball in her court even though the precedent has been set in the past 3 years to NOT follow the decree? How can this even be fair?
