His Ex-Wife Is Dragging Him to Court for Custody Because He Refused to Let Their 6-Year-Old Daughter Leave His House

A father recently found himself in a difficult situation with his ex-partner when he refused to allow his daughter to leave his house, even though she was desperate to leave. The man believes he has the right to have overnight visits with his daughter, but the mother thinks otherwise.

The man and his ex share custody of their 6-year-old daughter. 

The couple split up when she was six months old, and the man moved out of state shortly after.

He now only sees her for a weekend every three to six months.

“She developed severe anxiety in June after an incident at her daycare. My ex has used this as an excuse not to have her spend overnights with me,” the man said.

His ex-wife would drop the daughter off with him in the morning and pick her up again after dinner. She would then drop the daughter off again the following morning. 

The man was ok with it, to begin with, but quickly got fed up.

“Two weeks ago, I said she is going to be with me the whole weekend without her mom picking her up for bath and bed or calling every couple hours,” he said. 

The ex did not agree

His ex was not happy with this arrangement and told him that the daughter would be unable to handle it. But the man says he has the right to spend the weekend with his daughter without his ex interfering.

The following Saturday morning, the ex dropped his daughter off and suprisingly returned before lunch. 

She told him the daughter had called her and asked to go home. 

His daughter didn’t want to stay

“Then my daughter came running out with her backpack and didn’t want to come back inside,” the man said. 

The man got angry, picked up his daughter, and brought her back inside. 

His ex-wife quickly handed the daughter a phone so that she could call her behind the man’s back. 

The following few days were absolute hell

The young girl wouldn’t take a bath, and she wouldn’t go to bed. She was crying all the time and had small accidents, and when the ex finally picked her up, the daughter acted like the man had been torturing her all weekend.

“Now my ex is trying to take me to court to reduce my custody further and increase my child support, which I think is just to punish me for not letting her pick my daughter up early,” the man explained.

The woman and her family are furious with the man and think he’s a bad dad. They haven’t let him visit his daughter since the last time, so the man turned to the internet, asking if he was wrong for not letting his daughter go home when she wanted to. 

People responded

One user said, “YTA. You did what you wanted, not what was best for your daughter. Your ex was right. She wasn’t ready yet. Was forcing the issue worth it?” 

Another said, “What kind of garbage person treats their own child like this? He just further compounded her trauma. I hope the mom is awarded full custody and the child is allowed time to heal before interacting with OP for extended periods. Both parents need counseling to learn how to best support their daughter, and it goes without saying that the daughter would benefit from counseling.”
