We don't always get my SD for the holidays. We can only get her for the New Year's Week but not on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day, b/c that is when her mom's side of the family celebrates.
I am active duty so we are never anywhere close. So as we save up money we try to get her to be with us for the second 1/2 of the Christmas break. (The year before last was a $1327 ticket b/c it was across the country)
My huband had asked years ago about it, and was completely shut down by the BM. Is it too much to ask again, and have her here for the whole holiday?
We don't have "visitation rights' b/c in our state it was a separate case to child support. We never had really any issues as long as it didn't come in conflict with BMs plans and as long as we always pay 100%, and pay cs when she is with us. So when we are told no, then no it is....
What would be the best way to ask her if my husband asked the BM if the SD could come for the whole break? Do you think she will say no again?
Another thought... How about ask her this year about starting to alternate Christmas' next year? That would give her a whole year to know it is coming, and to know this year that next year she would be with her dad.
