My soon to be ex gets our 8 year old and 15 month old on Wednesday evenings and every other weekend. My question is how does custody work if we have something going on. For example, last weekend was my mom's 50th birthday party. My eight year old really wanted to go and of course the whole family wanted us there. ( I have a very close family). Well that weekend was my husband's weekend. I tried to get him to switch days with me and he refused. I asked my lawyer if I could take the kids and he said that I could. So I took them. I told him that if he wanted I would come back early Sunday and they could stay with him all day, then we could add another day to make up for the weekend. He did not respond. How does this work? I know in the future there will be weddings, etc. As the parent with full custody, do I have the right to say they can't go with their dad at certain times? Of course, I would always be willing to make up the time. What if a child is ill? Children want their mom when they are sick. This is all so new to me. I have so many questions. Please help!!
