I don't know if it's too late to ask a follow up question; if not-does she have to go in front of the same judge? Both she and the ex live in Madison County now and she wants to get the case moved up there.
Also, what kind of things constitute a good reason for modifying the agreement for her to be custodial over the father? He doesn't have a job right now, his employment history is sketchy throughout, he is a music bum who has been known to be a marajuana user, he has never helped pay for anything except 1/2 of the child's daycare as required in the original agreement, which amounts to $55 per week, and my daughter has had to stay after him constantly for him to do that. This is necessary because if it gets a certain amount behind, they will drop the child and he'll lose his spot. That is absolutely all he has ever paid; even when they were married, he didn't help pay the bills. He can be found in a bar most nights, sometimes as the entertainment but just as often not. Is this enough to get a modification, do you think?
And one more thing....can any action be taken against the lawyer who "didn't" handle her case?
One more follow-up: so, you don't think the case can be moved, even though both parties live in the other county now?
So, if he does object he can keep it from being moved? and sorry, I don't understand that second statement about absent filing.....
Thank you very much for your help, especially on a Sunday of a holiday weekend.
That is not good for you! Take the day off tomorrow...rest, relax, go to a cookout!
