Hello and welcome.
My name is XXXXX XXXXX my goal is to provide you with excellent service today. I am sorry to hear of your difficult situation. Before I can give you an accurate answer to your question, please provide the following additional information:
It sounds as though you might have joint legal custody with your ex but primary physical custody of your son. Is that right? Does the order of custody set out when the father may exercise visitation?
I look forward to assisting you as soon as I have received this information. Thank you.
My decree says that we shall have joint legal custody with each parenting having input on education, etc. And I shall have the physical care and custody of the minor children subject to husband's parenting time in conformity with the Indiana Parenting Time Guidelines. At the time we went to court my son was not seeing his father on a regular basis because his medical issues was chronic migraine headaches brought on by stress. He has never exercised his parenting time on a regular basis and until this past year saw him on occasion. This past year they joined a bowling league and bowl for a couple hours one night a week and saw each other on occasion at other times. His father now meets with him two nights a week for an hour and a half to tutor him in math. Other than that they see each other when my son is in agreement to do something with him.
I hope this helps clarify the situation for you. My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up questions. Kindly rate my service when I have answered your questions so I will be compensated for my time assisting you. Thank you!
