"But the person supervising the visits is within their rights to end the visits if something is going on that is detrimental to the baby."
Please explain how giving the baby a pacifier is "detrimental". For once TRY and place yourself in the father's shoes. He is TRYING to spend time with his child, the mother ADMITS that the child requires feeding nearly CONSTANTLY, he gets to the visitation center (where he is supervised for NO reason. He has not, per the original poster, done a SINGLE thing to endanger/harm the child), and is handed the baby. The baby, upset and wanting to eat, begins to cry. Now, when with Mom, the child cries, the child eats. When with DAD, the child cries, and he is not permitted to do ANYTHING that calms the child down. No pacifier, not bottle, NOTHING. SO what is Dad to DO, to calm the child, and begin the bonding process?
Oh, and what the HELL gives mom SOLE right to decide NO pacifiers or bottles?
"The father can threaten to sue for contempt all he wants, there is no contempt going on."
Actually, I think he could make a good case for the mother making arbitrary rules for parenting time (no bottles or pacifiers, or the visitation ends), and denying him HIS parenting time, based on something NOT in the court order. I mean if a parent shows up to pick the kids up, and the other parent sees that the recieving parent is wearing a blue shirt, can the parent say, "Sorry, I don't want the children to be with a parent in a blue shirt, you do not get your parenting time..."? Of course not, that is BLATANT denial of COURT ORDERED parenting time, and is custodial interference.
"Your daughter also needs to journal when the ex is stalking her. It may take a while, but if he continues, she can pursue a restraining order."
For once, could you try reading the post? They TRIED for a restraining order, it was denied. And it would pretty hypocritical to say that DAD gets supervised parenting time because he files for restraining orders...but Mom SHOULD file for a restraining order.
Why give a "senior" discount, they have had plenty of time to raise the money...
