I am not the custodial parent anymore, but wouldn't a judge look at the fact that I was the custodial parent, and the situation got turned around by the other lawyer so that I am the noncustodial parent? I am just amazed that this has happened -
The court will look at it and often will adjust the terms of custody and support
It is an area of law with frequent modifications
If my ex-husband has primary custody of my son is he actually considered the custodial parent or is that another term?
I am still in joint custody, but my ex-husband has more custody of my son than I have, but before I had more custody of him. Is my ex-husband still considered the custodial parent automatically?
He would be the custodial parent
if he resides with him
if you share living arrangements as in half a week each
then it is shared
Does that mean the schools should send him records from school instead of me? I have been the one they have sent everything to. My ex-husband wanted the child suppor in revenge, and bribed my son - He has not wanted to share him equally with me.
Typically they send it to the custodial
but it is common to demand it be sent to both and a court can order it
especially if one is not sharing information with the other
Wow - Is there any rights towards the noncustodial having communication? My ex-husband typically doesn't communicate with me and his wife and him don't want me to know things.
Also, one last thing, if I have a mildly autistic son who is 18 living with his father and his father, won't share any information about him with me or let him talk to me, do I have any rights as a parent? I have typically been in charge of helping, him, too, and his dad isn't helping right now.
You have rights to be informed and involved
and if this is not happening you can petition the court for such relief
Can I petition the court if the son is 18? I had heard that there was nothing I could do.
If a minor it becomes harder
often it can be mediated if both sides consent
or if he lacks capacity or has a guardian
