Hi-
Thanks for checking the board. You would think that this would be a popular one, (if only, sadly, out of nessecity).

Short version....been divorced for 3 years. We have a son who is 6, (and amazaing :))! His dad remarried 4 days after divorce was final, and they now see said child EVERY weekend, (although we live 3 hours apart). My son is beginning to complain that he has to leave his friends on the weekends. That he can't do team sports b/c the games are on Sats. when he is w/ his dad. He misses birthday parties, playdates, etc.... Since I have him all week, I am getting the brunt of his frustration on this issue. I have ALWAYS felt that seeing his Dad was the most important thing, but now, I question that if my son is not liking the arrangement, should he be the one to speak to his father, or I? We have an OKAY realtionship. Not fighting by any means, but not very friendly either.

Also, don't most divorced couples alternate each year on who gets the tax deduction for the child? My ex takes it every year even though the child is w/ me for primary custody, and he only pays $400 a month in CS?

Just wondering someone elses thoughts!
thanks-
tigerland
