Going to break it down easily since I have a unique situation -50/50 custody(week on/off) - I travel for work so there are times I need childcare for the kids when I am out of town. -Ex wont watch the kids unless I pay her $100.00 a day for each day I'm away(50.00 was originally agreed to in our decree)
-She is threatening me that no one is allowed to watch the kids if I travel out of town anymore and if so will take me to court and get full custody
-She only wants full custody to gain more child support money. She is spiteful to me and doing this because she knows if I dont travel I will lose my job
-have an attorney, but will not help me anymore because I still have balance due. He never did what he said he would and never filed contempt charges to help my case so I am currently stuck without legal help
-My girlfriend was going to move in with me and then can get bigger place for the kids(Ex said was ok with that but will not provide in in writing)
-I know if she refuses to watch the kids then I have every right to find appropriate childcare, but are her threats anything to worry about? My kids rather be with me and I am a very dedicated and involved father.
As long as you are complying with your court order the court can’t find you in contempt. That being said, there is nothing to stop her from filing a contempt action even when you’ve done nothing wrong. If you want to change the court order, you would have to file a modification action and demonstrate that there has been a substantial change in circumstances.
