My son has joint legal custody of his 9-year old daughter.

Resolved Question:

My son has joint legal custody of his 9-year old daughter. Last summer, she lived with her dad. He & her mother had already agreed that the child would spend this summer with him too. Last night, her mother informed my son that his daughter is going to spend the summer with her 17-year old aunt. Does he have the right to object to this arrangement?

Thank you for allowing us to assist you with this problem. I am not fully aware of what prior steps you have taken.


Unless the custody order states the father has First Right of Refusal, then he does not have the right to object. However, if he wants to attempt to expand his time with the child to include summers, then he would need to go to court to file a modification of visitation petition and the judge can examine the issue.
