Hello, last year me and my ex split up and since then she has been limiting my time with our daughter. I have been in my daughters life since the day she was born (commuting back and forth from Utica to Syracuse 3-5 times a week to see her) and now I’m only being allowed to see my daughter 4 days a month. I told her I wanted equal time with my daughter and that if we couldn’t come to an agreement I would take the issue to court. She initially agreed but then stated that she would only let me have my daughter if I started paying her. I refused and then she changed her mind about us having equal time. Now we’re in court and not only am I still not able to see my daughter more, but now I’m being expected to pay her child support so that she can afford to keep me out of my child’s life. Since she was born I have always been the one to buy all of my daughters necessities. To this day I still do but I have stopped providing my ex with things because I found out that she was deliberately taking the things that I and my family have bought my daughter and putting them away until my daughter outgrew them so she could turn around and sell them.
