I know this is a hatefest, and I'm liable to get run over but I think an equally apt headline would be:

Douchebag mother restricts visitation to terminally ill child, douchebag father retaliates ...

Bathia_Mapes: tlchwi02: doesn't sound like the mother denying a father visitation rights OR the father then refusing to sign off on the trip are good people

Sometimes visitation rights are denied for a reason. Maybe the guy's current behavior is an indication of how he treated his family in the past.

Either way, no matter how angry you are at your ex, you do not use your child to enact revenge.


Right. That's what pets are for.

He deserves the cancer, not the kid. Farking douchebag beyond all comprehension. If you use your kids as pawns in emotional warfare, fark you in the ass. It's a kid. An innocent goddamned kid.

Haha that dad owns. Totally alley ooped God's pwn on his n00b daughter.

My ex-wife has been absolutely horrible about visitation since she got remarried.
We'd have a weekend arranged, and EVERY SINGLE TIME, something would "come up" at the last minute so my daughter wouldn't be able to come.

When I was working a contract in the Pacific, I had a few weeks off over Christmas. Had tickets lined up for her grandmother, aunt, (my mother and sister) and her to fly to friggen Hawaiil for her Christmas vacation (my year for visitation). Nope, one week before departure she decides my daughter has to visit (ex-wife's) mother for one day in the middle of Christmas break (the grandma they visit every single week, that lives 45 minutes away). Opportunity of a lifetime for a kid had never been more than 3 hours away from home, crushed. I could go on and on.

BUT, in spite of all of that, there is NO FRIGGEN WAY I would screw my kid over on something she wanted to do because my ex plays that game. As a matter of fact, BECAUSE my ex plays that game, I want to show that I'm a better person.

The mother is really cool for denying the kids father the right to see his daughter though.

I wonder if Dad would be willing to pay for the trip out of pocket if he was allowed to take her to Disney World.
 
2012-07-18 10:48:41 PM
I am a divorced Dad who has 50/50 custody of his two children, only after walking through fire for a year-and-a-half to get it.

She filed for divorce, didn't tell me or the kids, and the next day took them on a two-week vacation that I couldn't afford to share in because I was the only one with a job. She told me about having filed the day after they returned, then asked me to help her break the news to the kids. I despise my ex-wife for the mischief she caused, simply out of spite, during the divorce

But, you know what? My kids have no idea how much I loathe their mother, and as far as I can tell, she rarely says a bad word about me to them. It's simply a line neither of us will cross.

TFA doesn't elaborate why Mom fought this guy so hard regarding visitation. Maybe she had her reasons; maybe she's a biatch. Doesn't matter. He's only truly hurting his daughter. Maybe he believes with all his heart that his ex and her mother are scamming a charity to get a free trip to Disney for themselves. Doesn't matter.

I don't know this guy. He may be the world's biggest prick, or he may have convinced himself this was the only honest thing to do. Doesn't matter. He's wrong.

Woah. I don't even know you, but that story makes me mad. She really ruined a Hawaii trip for your daughter? If it was your year for visitation, why not say no? See her grandma before or after she got back?

I don't get it.

You really think she can just flip a switch and deny him visitation?

A court made that determination for some unsaid reason. I think we get a sample of the father's character and he doesn't sound like a fit parent to me.
 
2012-07-18 10:58:20 PM
well...ok...fair enough i guess. the mom could be some fire breathing super biatch who totally lied and screwed dad over regarding the divorce, alimony, visitation, etc. that could be the case. or, the dad could simply be a deranged, petty grade a asshole himself.
we just don't know.
however, not signing off on your little girl, who has gone through some horrific cancer treatments, going to disneyland? even if evil biatch/fine woman you just hate AND her mom get to go...

Sad thing is she may not have beaten cancer. She is nowhere near in the clear at this early stage.

He simply asserted she was as an excuse to ruin something the kid deserved. I don't know how someone denies a child who suffered like that anything. But your own daughter? It's inhuman. And sadly I see this self centered me me me attitude a lot. This father is so focused on his grievance that he doesn't worry about how it affects others. And his grievance is likely manufactured to deflect his own responsibility.

You sound not divorced.
Courts determine every other weekend, every other year for Christmas break, things like that all of the time. It doesn't mean that the parent with primary custody is going to be at all cooperative about it, and if they aren't that the judge is going to do anything about it once you do get a hearing (which takes a good year or better in some jurisdictions) other than make the primary caregiver promise to start playing nice or they might have to come back and promise again.

The Hawaii trip thing I posted about upthread is a good example. Not shiat I could do about it, I was 5000 miles away from a court with jurisdiction at the time, there would be no way to get a hearing in time to make the trip, and if mom won't drive her to the airport or let grandma come pick her up, there isn't shiat you can do about it, and some custodial parents use that to their advantage.

You missed my point. Of course the system has problems, but it is not true that the mother made the visitation determination. She didn't. A court did.

I have a feeling this guy is 100% douche --- however I do have issues with mom thinking visitation is a privilege. We don't know all the facts. When a custodial parent think visitation rather the right of the child and non-custodial parent this can create an imbalance that is harmful to the child.

What if he offered to pay for Disney and they refuse or deny his ability? What if he wants to take her and they refused? What if he is worried that they won't comeback (reporters are known for not stating things)? What if this trip interferes with his schedule time?

Visitation is a right -- however in some cases people do need to earn the right back.

I am incredibly fortunate.

AppleOptionEsc: Idea: Don't have kids unless you have known your spouse for over 5 years.

Another Idea: No matter how big of a biatch mommy is, never do something that ends up in the news. She could be Hitler, and you'll wish you were despised that little.

CSB: My mom would never drive me to see my dad for the weekend. He always drove 8 hours round trip just to see us. She wouldn't even drive 45 minutes out of town to drop us off at a McD's so we could eat after 9 pm, since my dad drove truck.

very true. hell, i know someone who "beat" cancer in their late 30s. she lived a healthy life before, but man, she blows the doors off most people i know regarding exercise, diet, habits, lifestyle, etc...
she also has sterling insurance, totally takes advantage, regular tests.
found out a couple of weeks ago the cancer is back. all of a sudden like, and BAD.
as much as that blew my mind, i can't imagine starting out as a little kid battling cancer.
fark cancer, and fark that dad.

As a little kid, my dad pulled the douchiest stuff during our visitations. I can't tell you how many times he'd pick us up, sit my sister and I on the bed, turn the tv on, and just bounce for the whole night. Or the times he had to kick my mom the support cash and would complain the entire weekend about it. "I'm sure she's not using that on you, she's using it for beer and smokes" (thanks, meth-head for that judgement). Or when my mom started dating again, he bad-mouthed the guy non-stop even though he knew exactly nothing about the guy (the man I would later call dad because of his complete awesomness after completely writing off my real dady).

It really got to me because I always felt like I was forced to a pick a side. I would see my mom by beer and think she was stealing from me or, or the fact that it took about a year before I warmed up to my step-father and learned that he is everything a man should strive to be.

Just jacked up all around.

Yeah, because heaven forbid a woman doesn't want to take her husband's last name. Fark all of those women in well-established careers that get married and would have a harder time changing everything from letterhead and business cards to having to inform every single one of her business contacts of her name change.

I mean, whatever, I changed my name. I was looking forward to it. However, my (former) boss changed her last name, but felt like picking and choosing the situations in which she used her married name. It pissed me off to no end that she'd use her maiden name on her emails, but use her married name when she'd write notes and whatever. Biatch, pick one and go with it. It was confusing for numerous employees. Thank fark she moved to Arizona.
