Hello,

Who has custody of the child?

How do you know the speed........was he issued a ticket?

Are you seeking custody based on this or a change in the original order?

Hello,

This was in fact a bad parental choice.........there is no doubt about that. Wither is is enough to change the agreement you came to 7 years ago or not is another matter all together. Since you originally took this to mediation this may be your best next step. You must decide what you want to do about this situation.

To be honest it is unlikely the judge will change the visitation order over this. He would likely order dad to parenting classes and likely give him a sound lecture.
