And on and on.....
I need some help here. I HATE to call the attorney w/every little thing because each phone call costs us $$$$$$! We got an itemized statement in the mail the other day and a THREE LINE email I sent to the attorney cost us $25! AUGHHH!
Ok. Here goes. DH picked SS up this morning for his Wed/Thurs custody period. (BM was 30 mins late, btw. DH had to sit in front of their house for 30 mins b/c BM was filling a prescription.)
Anyway, this coming weekend is technically BM's weekend. BUT being that it is Father's Day weekend, in the parenting plan it states that DH gets his son from noon on Friday until noon on Monday. It is a holiday weekend and THAT supercedes regular weekend schedules.
Here's the kicker, though. In the parenting plan, underneath the heading, there are parentheses and it says: (commencing August 1, 2009)
BM is taking that to mean that the PARENTING PLAN itself does not go into effect until Aug. 1, 2009. BUT it is clear to US what it means. There is a line/arrow drawn from August 1, 2009 to a place in the paragraph about 3 lines in. THAT line says "Father will have residential custody for schooling/mailing purposes."
So it's pretty clear the line/arrow is pointing to THAT phrase because SS is set to start OUR school district in August.
This parenting plan was given to DH and BM in court in December of 2008. It was decided then that SS would finish the school year in BM's district.
WHY would the courts give them a detailed parenting plan that would not go into effect until August????
That makes no sense.
Neverthelesss, BM told DH today when he picked SS up that she will be at our house at 9 am on Friday to get SS for HER weekend. DH said no, he is staying with me this weekend and BM said she will show up w/the police if he refuses. And mark my words, I have no doubt she will.
How would this be handled by the police? I am assuming they will see that it is Father's Day weekend, and see that SS is with his dad, and leave it be.
I guess this probably does warrant a call to the attorney to make aure.
