Non-Custodial Parent Issues
If you have been awarded sole custody of your children, you may be experiencing issues with the non-custodial parent. You may be feeling frustrated, angry, and helpless. If either of these situations describe you, consider contacting an attorney to help you.
Non-Custodial Parent Not Allowing Child to Travel
In New Jersey, where one parent is the custodial parent of the child and that parent wishes to, say, travel outside of the country to see family members or simply to go on a vacation, and the other spouse refuses to allow it or refuses to obtain a passport or sign on to allow the child to get a passport, you can simply file a motion in court. If you can show good reasons why the child should be allowed to travel out of the jurisdiction of the court, that would generally be granted by the judge.
Non-Custodial Parent Always Late for Visiting Time
In New Jersey, where a noncustodial parent fails to either pick up the child on time, or drops a child off late, or simply does not show up when it’s their parenting time, the case can be taken back to court. A motion is filed, and the judge can either restrict the amount of parenting time that that noncustodial parent has or even stop parenting time completely.
