1. No one has gone to court or done anything legally yet. My sister is unsure if she should be the first one to make the first move. Also, it is important to know she has been the parent who has been with the child everyday since birth and give care to the child.
2. No court orders per custody as of yet. She would really love to have sole custody but I don't think there is such a thing unless he is in jail or can be proved of dealing drugs or something like that.
Is she required to let him have overnight visitation if she feels unsafe and would like to hold off on that till the child is of speaking age?
how many phone calls are considered harassment?
If my sister decides to text him saying that legally she does not have to text or provide visitation to him will that show poorly on her if she does go to court?
yes can you send me a sample letter?
