My ex was able to have our MSA changed to remove my eldest daughter that he raised from 1 years old. Now my 4 year old will be going over there alone. I had been speaking to them daily on my 10 year olds phone but now he doesn’t want her over there so I requested he allow me to speak with her Once daily like we’ve always done. His wife responded saying if I want to speak with her I have to buy her a phone. My 4 year old. What can I do?
It is not reasonable for your ex to require you to buy a four year old a phone. You should establish that he has demanded this in writing by emailing your ex something like: "Your wife has told me that in order to speak to my four year old daughter while she is in your care, I must buy her her own phone" If you cannot resolve this by yourselves, you can go to mediation by requesting that from the court, if that doesn't work you are going to have to file a motion. Of course you are best served by having counsel. I wish I could tell you that parents don't behave this way, but they do and sadly they get away with a lot of this type of stuff, which ultimately harms the children more than the parents.
