Do NOT refuse extra time with your child.
Both parents say they want physical custody. Both parents say they are the superior parent as compared to the other. One parent is awarded physical custody by the Court. The other parent then refuses EXTRA time, because it would “help” the other parent.
You are wrong. It helps your child. It gives you more opportunity to parent and be with your child. It improves your relationship, creates memories and helps you in the process.
Refusing EXTRA time is petty and can result in resentment between the parents and it makes no sense.
Matthew Thompson is a Child Custody Attorney and reminds parents to always take the extra time.
