Hello,

Children are not property. Your post indicates you think otherwise, and we need to fix that.

What was the parenting plan before - how often did you see your children?

What does the OOP say? Is it an anti-harassment order? Or is it a physical protection order?

You did that because she came to a practice?

Don't violate the order, for sure.

Why did you feel you had the right to ban her from attending her child's soccer practice?

And why do you feel entitled to dictate how she treats a common ailment in her child?

Other than the mistakes I clearly made- due to the animosity I have toward her- what is the next best steps forward?
I understand my role in this and realize in this police state I can not look at her cross.
do i fight point by point and refute with a certification?
or just appear and let the judge decide?
thanks

You should get a lawyer and have him advise you on this. But regardless, you need to keep your temper in check. It will backfire on you even worse if you don't.

I'm curious about these as well.
If you can't be a good example, you'll just have to serve as a horrible warning.

You'll have to focus on beating this OOP. To do that you need an attorney. Maybe suggest to your attorney you'll agree to an anti-harassment order and even take a co-parenting class if she'll drop it. Suggest Our Family Wizard for future communication between you two about the kids.

If you're successful at getting it dropped and go back to 50/50 time, you need to know/do a few things.

One: She's allowed to visit the kids at school or at their practices regardless whether that falls on your parenting time. You do not have any right at all to limit that access.
Two: You have no right to control what she does with the kids on her parenting time. Do not send her emails or texts or call her to criticize what she does.
Three: I think you need to start back at step 1. No conflict for at least one year. Learn DGAF. Get over your need to control.
Four: Get into therapy to resolve your anger at her.
