Agree with Janus. Let him drop them at school. You shouldnt even be asking the kids. Dad will drop you at school period. Why would you want them to have to get up earlier just to go to your house so you can do what he is offering to do which is take them to school? A judge would more than likely rule in his favour. You are going to go to court for that? Waste of time and money!

Best approach is to find a solution in working with your ex with as little of conflict as possible.

Going to court over something as trivial as a Wednesday drop-off is ridiculous. The courts are log jammed. Correction: the courts were logged jammed before the pandemic. Now they are insanely log jammed where trials have been pushed back 6-9 months from their proposed dates.

Try to work it out with your ex. A motion for this type of issue would be a waste of the courts time, and also money that could be used towards your kid.

Lorely, what does your question have to do with the OP’s ? Nothing! Don’t hijack somebody else’s thread. If you want to ask questions about your situation then start your own thread.

Now back to the OP.

Your offer to settle was more than reasonable and there is no way a judge would give your partner ALL the Christmas holidays. I agree with the other posters that you shouldn’t be afraid to go to court. It’s your ex who should be afraid. A judge will split the holidays and after they have made the order will look at your offer to settle. Because your offer to settle is better than anything the judge would have ordered for your ex and he refused to accept it, there is a very good chance he will have to pay your court costs as well.

LovingDad1234, Rocksan, Janus thank you very much for your advices. Very good insight, agreed with you always settlement is the best.
Looked like it was just another "fun" period for my ex, ended up emailing that we should have a verbal agreement in changing the time with 15 min...
