In a matter of divorce in which joint custody has been

In a matter of divorce in which joint custody has been awarded and father is the custodial parent. It' states that if the two can not agree the he has final say. Does that mean he can make any decision he chooses? My instance is this mother has adult adhd and as recent studies find the it may be a inherent trait, is it unreasonable for the mother to wish to have the three and half yr old to be tested?

Question regarding child support in the state of Texas. If

Question regarding child support in the state of Texas.If my child turned 18 in December of ladt year and I am the non custodial parent, I have been getting my child support payments returned to me since January of this year. I contact the child support agency and learned that they they turned off the support because he turned 18 and they didn't have current information on file from his school regarding his graduation date. Since I reached out to them in March they have been trying to get the information from the school and my ex wife. They recently within the last 30 days got in touch with my ex and she informed them that the school would be sending them the current information. When I reached back to the agency this week they said they have the information but they said that it's incomplete and are waiting for the previous school to verify some information so they could accept this school and due to the type of school he is attending they could not give me information on what the school he is attending???? Also he just registered for this school the middle of last month.I recently got word do not have concrete proof but I was told that my son had dropped out of school and my ex has been trying to get him back into school. That would explain why I have been getting my checks sent back to meSo my question is can the support agency really not realease the school he is attending, and if he is 18 and dropped out of school wouldnt my child support obligation be ended because I can't see the law allowing the child to hop in and out of school and allow the custodial parent to turn child support on and off like a light switch. The support agency also told me that if support gets turned back on that I would be responsible for paying back pay from the time they turned it off. If he dropped out of school how would this even make sense.

My husbands ex wife absconded with s son prior to their

My husbands ex wife absconded with his son prior to their divorce and concealed him from him for several years prior to their divorce. They now have joint legal custody and she is wanting to move to a different state without permission. She told the courts she is no longer moving but she is lying and her property is still up for sale. Can her previous lies and behaviour even though pre judgment be used to demonstrate a pattern of behavior?

I own a preschool. One child's father has full legal custody

I own a preschool. One child's father has full legal custody of child. Both parent have joint legal custody. Recently I got a copy of temporary restraining order from father not allowing mother to get anywhere near child, not even to talk on the phone.Tomorrow is the hearing. Mothers attorney sent me letter asking for attendance records of child.Since father has full custody I have to let him know everything that happens.I sent message to Dad saying moms attorney needs attendance records.His attorney says total legal custody for both parents I'd no longer effective because of the restraining order.Is that correct? Does temporary restraining order supersede the total legal custody court order

I have had my son's

My name is Melissa ******, hello. I have had my son's father served with contemt of court papers. Our court date is May 9th. Since I cannot afford an attorney, I will be representing myself. This is a very complex case, as his wife is a big part of th problem. We do have a parenting agreement which reads we share joint legal custody. Some modifications have been made since. He now has residential custody; as his wife works from home, and I work second shift. About three years ago, my son's father dis-enrolled him from a ct magnet school and placed him in a public school near him without my knowledge. He knowingly, willfully, and intentionally totally disregards ***** ***** refuses to co-parent, and gives her authority to enroll my so in after scool activities,field trips and the like. She alone signs permission slips alleging she is my son's mother and legal guardian, giving my son permission for medical treatment and giving her number as the only emergency contact. If John does not have the time to sign these sheets properly; as he runs his own business, maybe he should not have residential custody. What plausible excuse can he offer as to why he completely ignored my rights and gave authority to a third party non-custodian? I refuse to seek a remedy by signing another poinless document, witch would be blatantly ignored. My question is.....I have documentation that proves beyond any reasonable doubt (evevn though not required in civil court), contempt is occurring and my rights are being violated, what is the remedy I should be seeking
