My Ex lives in Alaska I live in Washington. my ex and I have 3 children together they are 16,15,and 13 all girls. We did not get a parenting plan due to we broke up when my 13 year old was under 1years old. I have raised these girls with no help from him. He only visited them once in the 12 years we have been apart. I have made the effort to keep their dad informed of how their are doing by calling him. Recently my 15 year old expressed interest in getting to know her dad. So of course I called him and made arrangements for her to visit with him. The agreement between the two of us, was he would pay for her to go up there and should she want to come back to Washington I would pay for her ticket. Earlier this week my daughter called me begging to come and I said that I would buy her a ticket. 4/15 My ex informs me that until he gets reinbursed for the ticket he purchased then he would not ALLOW her to leave even If I purchased her ticket and she had a friend or relative take her to the airport. Then I am angry too, he owes his children 15000 in child support and my daughter is begging to come home, I am not sure what can be done. She told me that she is now being held hostage and I spoke with him and that is what he is doing.I have contacted the police but I am not sure that they will do any thing I don't know what else I can do. So if any one has any information please share.
