I have a shared custody agreement and my child is supposed to fly to me for 6 weeks over the summer. In our agreement, it states that we are to discuss and confirm travel arrangement via email 45 days prior to travel to decrease costs. It also states that we are to respond to each other within 72 hours. Although it is not yet 45 days prior to travel I have been attempting to email the custodial parent for 2 weeks because plane ticket prices were low, but I have not received a response. I have emailed twice and now I am concerned that either he is not responding so that the prices are raised or they have no intention of sending my child. What can I do here? Do I wait until the 45 days to order the tickets and just hope he sends her?
It will be your choice of buying tickets or not but if the custodial parent refuses to honor your timesharing, you can move for a motion for contempt against him for violating the parenting plan/timesharing agreement. Best of luck!
