Re: Mother Does Not Follow the Custody Order
sorry to say but the other parent does not have to exercise their visitation time. The visitation order is time you must allow the other parent to take the children but if they do not exercise their time, it is not a violation of the order.
You have to honor whatever the court order gives you.
1.) Do I still have to honor the summer visitation (full summer) since she did not take them for the full summer, is she in contempt even with the letter she wrote?
You will have to comply with the rules within your visitation order.
2.) I also want to move out of state which was written into my custody papers, will I have to honor schedule "B" , or just give her two weeks..
If the mother fails to exercise her time, enough, you could try to seek a modification of the order to change it to something that more closely resembles what she is exercising. No guarantees though.
as to the various money issues: what is in the order controls. If she fails to comply, that is one issue you can get the courts to address and order her to make payment. If it was a side agreement, it is up to you to enforce it through the civil courts. The family court is not going to enforce a side agreement.
I am not an attorney and any advice is not to be construed as legal advice. You might even want to ignore my advice. Actually, there are plenty of real attorneys that you might want to ignore as well.
