dad who wont help with child care AmandaShaw6091 Due February 8; Atascadero, California 1 posts25th Jun
Im super frustrated with my ex because I moved back to california with my son so he could see his dad more. Now that im back his dad claims to be too busy during the week to see him and now he wont take him on the weekends cuz he needs his alone time. I need to work nights on friday and saturday and I was counting on him to have our aon thoae nights so I could work. And now he needs his alone time. When he barely sees our son. I have physical custody and he has visitation whenever he likes. What can I do? Can I take him to court and have them do anything? My family lives in washington so I don't have that support and I need all the help I can get.

you should also be able to get an order where he has to pay for half of the childcare costs. Unfortunately the courts can't make him take lo on his scheduled days

Does he pay child support? Maybe you can go to court and say you want your child support increased so that you can pay for childcare because he barely ever sees his son and he won't even take him in his days off so you can work. First tell him you're going to take him to court if he doesn't step his game up
