Former Spouse Custody Issues
Divorce is complicated especially when things go sour between you and your former spouse. If you are having former spouse custody issues such as suspected negligence, lack of cooperation, or anything else, this blog is for you.
Former Spouse Custody Issues | Always Late for Visitations
If the non-custodial parent is late picking up or dropping off your child, you can take your former spouse to court to file a motion to reduce the amount of visitation time he or she has.
Former Spouse Custody Issues | Not Allowing Child to Travel
As the custodial parent, you have the right to take your children on trips, even outside of the country. If the non-custodial parent is refusing to allow this travel, refusing to allow your child to obtain a passport, or otherwise attempting to prevent you from traveling with your child, you can go to court and file a motion against the non-custodial parent. If you can demonstrate good reason why the child ought to be allowed to travel outside of the country, the judge will generally grant your motion.
Former Spouse Custody Issues | Substance Abuse
If you suspect your children are in danger because your former spouse is drinking, using drugs, or exhibiting uncontrolled anger, you need to correct this as quickly as possible, enlisting a skilled and experienced attorney to take your concerns to court. You must file a motion in court, and provide evidence substantiating your claims. The court will consider your motion and could either change the parenting time arrangement or take steps to correct the offending behavior.
