I have been divorced for almost 6 years. I have a 17 year

I have been divorced for almost 6 years. I have a 17 year old Down Syndrome son who will turn 18 in November. Since and prior to the divorce this son has spent the lion's share of his time with me (80-90%) despite the parenting plan which stipulates 50-50 time sharing. At this late date, can my ex-wife enforce the parenting plan for the next 6 months against the status quo that has existed for almost years? My son, because of his special needs, objects strongly to any change in his routine.JA: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Palm Beach County, FloridaJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: Not yet, but my ex-wife has already hired one. I am looking.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I spend enormous amounts of time withy my daily, teaching him life skills and some academic work.
