The first visit, the father didn't arrive when he said he would at 1:00 but at 5:00 pm. Then missed the second visit, calling and belligerently yelling and cursing at my sister and now the third visit he is switching weekends from this weekend to next weekend. He lives 4 1/2 hrs away. The baby is only 1 1/2 yrs old. Neither parent has a signed order from the judge. He also didn't pay his first month of child support which isn't important except that he isn't following the order. Does he have to complete each step before he can move on to the next step of increased increments of timed visitation? If he hasn't completed the step up plan before the holidays, does he still get the baby for the whole holiday of Thanksgiving from Thursday thru Sunday? Thanksgiving day?
