My son is 6 and his father lives 1 hour away from me in a different state. He is rude to me and talks bad about me to my son. I have herd it first hand. He won't let me talk to hime when he has him every other weekend. He ignores me. The last incident we had he threw him in his car and locked the door and took off very fast. He called me a very bad name to my son. Our court order is that we meet half way to each other on friday evenings and he is supposed to take him to his school 1 hour from his home every other Monday. Which he has only done maybe 2 times in the past 6 months. He calls me last minute to pick him up Sunday nights. Any ideas what I could do?
Get with an experienced family law attorney to review your orders to see if there are provisions about the bad language. The attorney will also be able to help you on the other enforcement issues.

The Indiana Parenting Time Guidelines include a provision that states each parent should promote a positive relationship between the child and the other parent. This includes keeping open regular phone contact between you and your child. You should consult with an attorney to ensure this information is properly communicated to your son's father and if he continues to refuse, your attorney can assist you in filing a contempt action against him.
