My ex and I have been separated for 4 years and divorced for nearly 2. We had an agreement in place for him to spend every second weekend and one week of each school holidays with his son. His son is now 13 and has a busy life! The ex now also has a busy life, which is all about him these days. Every time it is his turn to have his son, he cancels his son's activities for that period and drags him along to his own activities. My son is getting very distressed about this as he is committed to his school activities, his sporting teams and his music obligations. His dad has said that as he pays money towards his upkeep, he has to spend weekends with him.
My son has said that he doesn't want to go to his dads anymore as he misses out all the time and his sporting teams are getting annoyed with his inability to be available on a regular basis.

What can I do and where do I stand???
