I have spent 10's of thousands of dollars since 2013 to try and see my kids on a normal basis. My ex continues to do everything in her power to prevent me from seeing them. She is an extreme narcissist that uses our kids as a weapon. I won primary custody of the kids a few years ago. Because of COVID I agreed to let her watch the kids 50/50. I have to work. In less than 9 months both of my kids have once again stopped coming over and I am back to square one. The legal system sucks for dads. (just needed to rant).
