Are you asking how to challenge the order? When was the order entered? Was it entered after a trial? What kind of hearing was it?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
The order was entered after a trial last Aug where he tried to get custody. Yes, how do I challenge the order and steer clear of any accusations of neglect/abuse claims?
Expert:  Steven K. replied 8 months ago.

At this point, it is too late to challenge the order. Appeals and other challenges have deadlines that have all passed. The only possibility is a modification based on a change in circumstances. If you can show that public/private school has been worse for the children that homeschooling, there is a chance you could get a modification. I'm sorry I can't give you better information for challenging the order itself.
