Custodial Parent is not willing to accommodate even minor changes to the visitation schedule, like one weekend instead of the other. NCP needs to work late hours sometimes or attend classes / volunteering activities in the evenings or weekends. Traveling out of state for a few weeks is also a possibility. In all such instances, which coincide with the visitation schedule, children, who are still infants cannot be cared for by the NCP. Custodial Parent knows the difficulties and is exploiting the situation by not willing to adjust the schedule. What alternatives does the NCP have in such cases? To add to the difficulties, the CP, being a joint legal custodian, does not agree to the daycare that NCP may choose to leave the children in such cases nor will she suggest an alternative.
