I have made several extremely reasonable requests to my son's father regarding a family trip home. My ex has custody of our son overnight during the week, and the weekend in question is my own weekend. I are trying to leave earlier in the day the day of his overnight to take my son home to visit his great grandmother for our family celebration of her birthday. She is turning 92 years old and he needs to be there as she may not have many more birthdays. I have sent several requests asking him to simply switch nights during the week with me and even offering him an additional day with our son during my own time. He refuses to work with me simply because he doesn't want to allow us to travel home. If I go out of state with my son anyway, what is the worst that can happen?I should have specified that my ex has custody of our son for one evening during the week for an overnight visit. I am the custodial parent and during the visit we are trying to take home, my ex will lose less than 24 hours visitation with our son. As stated, I have tried to request he switch nights with me and have promised extra visitation time.
