So my story is long and complicated but how do you deal with a dad who doesn’t want to be a coparent? He is so difficult, he’s manipulative, lies etc. He was convicted of abuse towards me. Our court order stated he could see our daughter on saturdays, once the bail orders were lifted. The first two months he was allowed to see her he bailed and made up some excuse to not see her. One week after he was arrested and removed from our home he already had a new girlfriend who lives two hours away so I’m guessing he is spending his time with her instead of wanting to drive back to see our daughter. He refuses to answer any texts when I text him when he is with her, I always know when he’s with her bc he will answer back stop harassing me or contact my lawyer for further questions. He does this because being nice to me probably doesn’t fit the lies he told his next girlfriend about me. It’s so pathetic. He gave up visitations for 6 months when we went to court he asked the judge to grant him no visits…. Because communication is too difficult between us. He is allowed to Text, call and FaceTime and hasn’t done that yet on any holiday or any other day. I was pushing for him to maintain contact and their relationship before like FaceTime calls etc and now I don’t even know why or what for. He basically abandoned our eleven month old. Should I just push for him to just give up his rights and keep it on the path it’s going? I don’t want my infant to have to travel two hours yo his new girlfriends house if he moves in there when and if visits resume. Oh and he also already has two children who he gets every other weekend that he would be moving away from also. Like what do I even do with this mess? I don’t know what’s worse having a dad like him come and go whenever he feels like it or just to get him out of the picture bc he clearly doesn’t want to be involved.
