If I don't let him have his way, or if I try to stand my ground, he threatens to take me back to court. He tells me that I will lose custody of my kids entirely and that I will have to pay his and my lawyer fees. I have these threats in emails and texts.
I can't afford a custody battle and he knows that. So he uses that to scare me. He has taken my children on several occasions when he was not supposed to. I have reported each incident to the court's visitation enforcement advocate. They have had to contact him in the past to make him comply, but he continues to do these things because there hasn't been any real consequences for him.
