His argument to the "new" status quo will be that it is a false status quo, engineered unilaterally by the ex. It isn't insurmountable, but the longer he waits to file a motion changing this, the...

She can say lots of things, it doesn't mean they will happen. You did the right thing by saying you don't agree. The ex doesn't get to dictate terms relating to the children. Until either a court...

No she hasn't. It is something I was planning on bringing up next time I have her for my weekend.

I am doing my best not to get involved with the ex. My D asked that I not bring it up with the ex, as she knows that will create WWIII in the house. I know it too, so I told I wouldn't say anything,...

It could be they were in an offset c/s scenario having shared custody. That the ex was declaring no income, receiving near full c/s. Then the ex gets a job near the same income as the OP, making...

Pleasantries with my ex range from cold to robotic most times. IMO, ignore it and simply be yourself. I normally say hi, how are you, and then focus on my kid. I am not there to see my ex, I am there...
