There was no reason why the judge denied the transfer. Could be because the courts are so busy. I do not know. The father, in Texas started this a couple of months ago, filing to get his child support payments lowered, which he is behind on. He sends just very little. I finally got his wages garnished, that is when he filed. He also wants a morality clause in the papers, and wants to see the child...a 3 year boy more often.
He has NOT kept up with what he was suppose to do as far as visitation...he had graduated visits,, so the child could bond with him. I let him have the child for a week, and my son had anxiety seperation when he returned to MO. I am wanting the father to go back and fullfill his visitations. He has missed 10. My son has lived with me in Missouri since he was 1 month old. The father told his lawyer I have only lived here since last dec. I hope this answers your questions. If not please let me know. thank you.
