My question involves a child custody case from the State of: TN
Hello everyone! Our case is almost concluded, but I have a couple of questions. I do not have a lawyer.
We have come to an agreement on everything - 50/50 time which will result in zero child support after arrears are paid, but I am keeping the tax exemption every year because I absorb ALL the cost of homeschooling (including field trips, school materials, and other activities about $4000/year) which father now supports continuing. A year ago, I would never have agreed to this, but father is trying to be a better dad and we are talking about everything together now, so we are on a better path to co-parenting well.
Opposing attorney scheduled me for a deposition blindly, which happens to occur during a planned vacation. She will not reschedule, so I will be missing the deposition. We have an agreement, and I just need to go sign it. Father is pressing to sign it today because I will be gone on vacation all next week. Is there any penalty for missing a deposition when there is an agreement that just needs to be signed? Is there some other reason that he might be pressing me to sign immediately when our court date is over a month away?
Thanks for your thoughts.
