ex taking vacations
      03/13/12 06:54 PM

I am new here and would welcome any advice on my situation. Thanks!

We have a 5 year old daughter. She spends 2 nights/week with dad, 5 with me. This is what her dad wanted--no more time than that.

Her dad & I are at the end of negotiating a parenting plan modification. My last concern to iron out is that he tends to go on vacation (without child) whenever he wants, and he just tells me the dates & he's gone. There is no discussion of the calendar, my daughter's schedule, or mine.

I want to add in a clause that says "neither parent shall miss more than 5 consecutive nights with the child unless agreed upon by both parent." He believes I am "dictating" his vacation schedule and I have no right to tell him when he can go away.

Is there a better way to word this so that maybe he will agree to it? I basically don't want him able to go away for weeks on end without planning it out so it works for all of us.

Anyone else have an ex who actually doesn't want parenting time? I've been battling for years for him to actually spend MORE time with our daughter.

Any advice/opinions appreciated. Thanks!
