Aw, how hard to not know what is happening, and to have all those questions and worry for your sister.

I agree with PP's. Standard visitation for non custodial parent is usually something like EOW plus a midweek dinner or midweek overnight. I think it's good to be flexible sometimes....but for a...

I'd say that head protection from whiplash/cervical spine fracture is priority. So in your case, in the middle seat I would skip the backless booster (or use a high back). If the lap belt rides up...

Agree with above. If he confiscates the photo albums, that is child emotional abuse/DV by proxy and needs to be documented (ETA: I try to avoid the term parental alienation. Attached article does...

I agree with PP. 50/50 is almost always for the adults. 50/50 "quality time" with both parents, but with one parent having primary residence is another story. 3 yr olds don't keep track of time.

I completely agree with Vocal Minority. Something is very strange about xh spinning things that he is somehow protecting you from wrath of his family. It's fishy at best.

Oh that is scary!
With support, sounds like he is playing passive aggressive games. I am lucky I keep enough emergency cushion in case of late support.
But if not doing so, I would be documenting...

Good point. Kids deserve consistency and predictability. So if xh can't consistently hold up his commitment to court ordered parenting time, then perhaps the order needs modification.
