Customer Question

I have a 17 year old that will be 18 in 31 days. She has been physically abusive to me within the last few weeks and is dating someone that is against me. I'm not comfortable with giving her a key or free access to the house but she is demanding one. I don't want her in the house if nobody is here. We can be available to let her in the house but I don't want to give her a key. Do I have to?

Are there formal custody orders in place? What are they?
