What you’re describing is a common type of interference, where things like birthday parties, sports, or other extracurriculars seem to always end up scheduled during your visitation times.
Odds are that your ex also does a bad job notifying you of these conflicts until the last minute, and doesn’t invite you to attend games, recitals, and so on.
This kind of behavior is not okay, and it’s important that you keep a careful record of custodial interference.
Patterns that don’t diminish over time, and which your ex refuses to acknowledge to you when you try to bring them up, can amount to important evidence for a Family Court judge to review in determining whether to maintain the custody arrangement as written.
