Yea but from what you said, I'm understanding it to mean that you are just Unconfortable with him being 3 hours away. Not because his grandmother is a drug addict and abusive.

We've already established that I didn't try to trash her in court without any proof. You are correct. The hearing wasn't even supposed to be about anything like that. The civil summons papers said that he wanted to try to have his child support lowered and to claim Kaden on taxes every other year. That is what I went prepared to argue. I was completely taken off guard by him bringing this up as I thought that we had a mutual understanding. He has never asked me to take Kaden to his moms and when we did our original parenting plan, we both agreed. I wasn't expecting or prepared to argue rationally and tastefully in front of the judge about why he shouldn't be able to take our son to see grandma.

I understand what you're saying now. I didn't mean to seem like a bitch. I'm sorry you are having to deal with her and all I can say is, at least his time with her is limited, and you are aware of her past so you can be super watchful over your son when he comes home from being over there. It is great that you and your sons father can get along, though. That's a great example for your son.
