He got a new job and works Saturday, can he change the legal agree to pick up sat instead of Friday, so he doesn't pay a sitter?

Q: My ex and myself have a legal custody agreement now he gets our son, Friday 430- Sunday 430. Usually im nice and let him stay until Monday. He just got a new job and wants to pick him up on Saturday night. He doesn't want to pay a sitter and wants me to watch our son. But I can't I work now and during the week when I have my son its my responsibility to find a sitter. He can't legally change the schedule right?

Can my visitation or legal custody be negatively impacted by 1 missed visit for business purposes?

Q: I have a custody settlement agreement which was entered as court order (White Plains Family) almost a year ago. The mother has physical custody; we share legal custody. In nearly 2 years since I have never missed (or even been late) for a scheduled visitation. I have an unexpected required business trip that means I would miss a regularly scheduled overnight. I gave the mother five days notice in advance. Typically, I pick up and drop off from preschool. On other days our child is bussed for pick up and drop off from mothers home to/from preschool. He is in a special ed program and Westchester county provides CPSE services including bussing. The mother has informed me that neither she nor the nanny will be home when our child is dropped off from school on the regularly scheduled day and that if I don't pick him up, she will pursue revocation of my visitation and shared legal custody as well as report me to CPS as having abandoned our child. If no one is at the mother's home when the bus drops off from school in the afternoon, is the mother responsible as the physical custodian or am I responsible because this was a regularly scheduled visitation?

What are the chances of getting a parent coordinator removed? I can't afford her fees ($400 per hour).

Q: My ex uses her for every thing and she has agreed with him on all 15 issues since she started 10 months ago. She has billed us over $14,000 since December. I pay 40% of the bill- although my ex makes 7 times as much as me. There is no time limit on her services in the agreement and I if i don't agree with her, I have to go to court to oppose it. Also, she has critized my parenting, order me and my boyfriend to meet with her, decided my 4 yo needed therapy and sends me nasty emails about not paying her and copies my ex on the emails. This is just some of the stuff.
