mom got a new family no room for dad
Time: 4:54:37 PM
Remote Name: 18.104.22.168
About 1 year ago my girlfriend and I bought a house; my daughter was visiting the weekend we moved [and] I got into an argument with her mother over the phone. she threatend to withhold my visitation and said that I didn't have a court order specifying my visitation like her other child and that she didn't have to let her over.
Ever since, my daughter has had no time for me and is very rude if her mother is
around. I don't know what to do. my experiences with the courts have all been bad and the cost of an attourney is more than I can bear; her mother refuses to talk to me on the phone and tells my daughter that I
don't love her. Her mother has recently married and had a third child.
My daughter now requests that I let her change her last name. this is a VERY SHORT list of problems
I've delt with over the last year but my daughter means the world to me and I
don't know how to make her understand the importance of time spent with the other side of her family ANY ADVICE IS APPRECIATED!!

Perhaps the court system is different here in Canada but why not represent yourself? It isn't as bad as it sounds, out of three years in the court system, l've done self representation about 8 times. In Canada, you have to prepare and serve your own affadavit and then you calmly tell the judge your situation. There are disadvantages, but l have found that if you are calm and clear about what you want the Judge is very fair and l have found success in small but measurable ways. Keep on going. l will post my story soon and you'll see that l am but one of thousands in your situation, so know you are not alone. Continue to be the great Dad you are.
