My question involves a child custody case from the State of: MN
I got the Order in the mail today after our hearing to modify parenting time. The order states that we will split transportation, but that I am to drop the kids off with him and he brings them back. This seems really odd, as isn't it usually "receiving parent picks up"? It's very specific, that I am to drop them off at his house in his town and he has to drop them off at my house in my town, so it's not that the judge mixed up "Petitioner" and "Respondent". It seems like doing it this way would leave it open for me to end up having to go get them after he refuses to bring them back and forcing me to provide transportation both ways. I know I could pursue contempt if that happens often enough but it seems silly to make that a possibility if you can avoid it. One could argue that if he hasn't done it before he probably won't do it now, but extenuating circumstances say there's a good chance he'll do this, including the fact that he motioned for me to provide all transportation in the first place. I responded with split transportation, "receiving parent picks up". Advice, comments?
