I’m a father of two. 11 year old girl and 4 year old boy. Seperated Jan 2013. Upon seperation I continued to spend time with both chiildren,(taking them to my mom’s throughout the week and weekends) paid her rent and paid for all expenses of both kids. In July I found a place of my own. At this time myself and my ex did an every other WEEK schedule. She would have them one week and me the next. I actually spent time with them on the week that wasn’t mine due to her work schedule. I would pick them up from daycare, bring them to my place, have dinner and bring them back to their mom. Jan 2014 she decided to serve me and asked for full custody and allowing me to see them 4 days per month. And has since this decided to move from her residence and move 100 kms away. Taking kids from school, friends, family and activities. I filed a motion with the court to have this stopped. Which the judge agreed and set a temp order that they stay until school is over. MY question is: I feel that the best interest of my kids is to be close to both parents, spend equal time with both parents and her moving 100kms isn’t what’s best. Will most judges agree with this? And with respect to custody, do I have a chance if I ask for shared custody. I want to parent my kids as I’ve done in the past and this isn’t able to be done when I see them 4 days per month.
