What *could* be a better plan of action than court would be to be as helpful as possible. Offer to watch the child so Mom can get a break. Offer to help with transportation to activities. And so on....
Remarriage/cohabitation can certainly affect alimony, but should not affect child support - her new partner has no legal responsibility to support your children.
Most states have CS guidelines...
I dunno. At 11ish, both of mine were okay to leave alone for a few hours (one more than the other, but still...).
In the situation OP has indicated if Dad is available and the timeshare is...
The saying is actually the other way around. "The pot calling the kettle black."
Sometimes, being pedantic is a necessity. ;)
Yeah, fella! How dare you try to teach a man to fish!
Given the situation, I'm going to suggest that you go to any lengths possible to schmooz Mom. If you file for court-ordered visitation and lose? I can almost guarantee she will deny you contact...
Oh boy. Congrats on finding a lawyer who's telling you what you want to hear, with just enough reality to keep it real.
* Yeah.... no. A court will not give much weight to an 8yo's opinion....
And what is the conflict of interest?
Do you mean that you aquired the assets prior to marriage?
Especially over pizza.
If this illiterate and uncouth person is so horrendous, why did you choose to have a child by him? Honest question.
Hopefully Dadalso filed against your granddaughter for contempt for denying court-ordered parenting time.
How old are the other daughters?
The devil is in the details as to whether he will be considered a danger to your 2yo.
I meant before they married. (and yes, they're now divorced.)
Was my LeTourneau question removed? In line w/teen dads (even as victims of statutory rape) being ordered to pay CS?
Dude - how do you think other divorced parents manage having to work? It's called daycare or summer camp (in summer, duh). It's not all happy, fun, play time, being a parent.
YOU want to take him...
It's funny how pendulums work. For years, centuries even, men "owned" their wives and children (look up "chattel", son). When hubs wandered, wifey was expected to put up with it. And if hubs decided...
Or, take him for the month you're given and arrange for care while you work as other divorced parents do. THEN you can enforce the transportation part of your order. It isn't that complicated.
I don't talk to people who scream at me, either.
But thank you for an amusing Sunday morning!
Only if that is how the court ordered his parenting time to work. Mom is not necessarily the supervisor.
Thing is, if you want your kids to be "witnesses" for you, either via video or in-person, you should bear in mind that Mom has the right to cross-examine them. The court would take a dim view of it,...
I'm willing to bet Jeff's snowflake did plenty of whining, too.
I've known more than a few HS and college athletes. Whining about play time is rarely taken well (no one thinks they play enough), and often leads to the whole team running. Frankly, I'd bet your...
So are doctors. Do you hesitate to disclose information to them?
And what is your question?
