Hi! I will be the professional that will be helping you today. I look forward to providing you with information to help solve your problem.
Good afternoon. Just to be clear, the Father lives with his girlfriend who has a home which she rents a room to someone? Thus, when the child is with the father, she has to sleep on the couch?

Thank you. There are certainly some issues present, that could allow the mother to take the father back to court and modify the custody agreement and impose restrictions. For off, there is a stranger renting a room in the home. This is not a situation where it is just the father and girlfriend and maybe some of her children but a tenant in the home. Second, it is forcing the child to sleep on the couch. If there is shared custody and she is there half the time, he should make arrangements for her to have her own room. Finally, the home is not that of the fathers and he is simply living with his girlfriend. If he was paying renting and shared expenses with her, it may be different but he moved into her home and lives there with a tenant and the child has to sleep on the couch. As such, the mother can ask the court to require the child to have her own room, especially when there is a 3rd party in the home, unrelated and at 13 years old, there should be some privacy for her. The Judge could order she have her own room or address the issue with her living with a tenant in a home and sleeping on the couch, when the mother can provide her own room for her.
