    Default Can You Take the Other Parent to Court if Not Informed of Extracurricular Activities

    My question involves a child custody case from the State of: ca

    Short history: divorced 7 years, child is 10. Both myself and mother are remarried with one child each with new spouses.Custody is week on/week off (50/50) with exchanges on sundays. This just recently changed, previously I had 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 5th weekends and every other week in summer. We have a pending date to modify support, I currently pay 500+ each month as well as medical coverage for child.

    When custody changed to week on week off, mother asked if I would be able to maintain Dance practice during my time. Unfortunately, the practice was during my work hours and I advised I would not be able to transport. Mother then said she would cancel child's dance. Mother did not wish to compromise or take child on my time.

    Fast forward 6 weeks..I called my daughter Saturday evening as I normally do (call every other day) and my daughter proceeds to tell me she is getting ready for a recital. (Mother was able to swirch practice times and did not make me aware)I asked why she didn't tell me and she replied, I thought my mom told you. I heard mom in background state, no I didn't tell him.

    I asked to speak with mom and asked why I was not made aware. She said she didn't feel like telling me and itsaid something they do on her time and with their life and I only have to be included with school activities. I explained my kid is the only one suffering and mother stated somethings will be unfair and I have to accept it.

    Keep in mind child has been involved with this dance for 18 months. I have attended all recitals thus far and even took her to a dress rehearsal and show that happened on my weekend.

    Can this be brought up in court and how do I approach. I feel like it may be alienation to an extent.

    Thanks for your help.

    The judge isn't going to regulate all facets of your lives. Now that you know she's still dancing, call the dance school and ask for a schedule. That's YOUR job.

    Are you already going to court over something else? If you bring a motion on this issue alone, you can expect the court to wonder why you're wasting its time with trivialities.

    Based on what you've told us? It's not.
