No, unless you are under a specialized custody agreement, you definitely don’t have to plan your visitation time to the second and give your ex a roadmap of your whereabouts.
For the most part, ensuring that your ex can contact you via cell phone is adequate.
If you’re stepping into a movie, for instance, and your cell phone will be off for a couple of hours, texting your ex to that effect might help to keep relations smooth.
If you’re planning on taking your child out of town, your ex should know, and know how to contact you both.
If your child plans to spend the night with a friend during visitation with you, make sure your ex has contact information for your child’s friend’s parents.
On the other hand, if your ex is demanding constant contact with your child during your custodial days, it may rise to the level of custodial interference.
Your ex has an obligation to respect your time with your child, just as you have an obligation to respect theirs.
If your ex is making time with your children impossible, call the attorneys at Friedman & Ranzenhofer today at 716-542-5444.
