I truly aim to please you as a customer, but please keep in mind that I do not know what you already know or don't know, or with what you need help, unless you tell me. Please consider that I am answering the question or question that is posed in your posting based upon my reading of your post and sometimes misunderstandings can occur.

Also remember, sometimes the law does not support what we want it to support, but that is not the fault of the person answering the question, so please be courteous.
What if I am willing to cooperate and work together but the mother is not? Why should she get custody then?
Is it sufficient evidence that she refuses to tell me where and when she baptized my child and she cancelled my court ordered visit for his first birthday so that she can have a family party? Is it sufficient evidence that she refuses to allow access to the child for any of my family members? Only once in 2 years? Is it sufficient evidence that the number of photos she has sent over this time numbers about 12? Is it sufficient that the psychiatrist diagnosed adjustment disorder on my part due to "poor communication with the mother and inability to see his son"? Is it sufficient that she tried to characterize a love poem I wrote her for Valentine's day after she started inviting me into her home as evidence that I'm somehow unstable? Is it sufficient that her text messages demonstrate homophobia and crude animosity towards me? Is it sufficient that she had her father sit in front of the supervised visit establishment to intimidate me from attending?
Should I ask the court to place an order so that she must communicate information regarding my child? She has gotten a no contact order against me because she claims I was harassing her when all I ever asked was about the child. Now the grandmother is supposed to act as a messenger. Can this be codified as an order? I imagine it would be hard to have any specifics in that order as to what constitutes meaningful communication regarding the health and well-being of my son.
