Customer Question
I just need...

I just need to know what the exact percentage my son is with me and with his father. I'm trying to find a website that will tell me without having to pay for it.

Lawyer's Assistant: When we are ready I'll take you to the appropriate web page.

Ready

Lawyer's Assistant: Family law varies by state. What state are you in?

California

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?

I can't afford one. So I have to figure this out on my own.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

We have a custody agreement in order but it has a lot of holes.

Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

CA does not have a free parenting time calculator online, but they do publish the percentages of time for parents to use to make the calculations, have you looked at those?

Thank you for your reply.

Here is what CA makes available for a parent to use to calculate their parenting time percentages: http://www.scscourt.org/court_divisions/family/family_rules/family_appendices.shtml (copy and paste link to browser, do not click it).

You would need to use this guideline, which is the same for all the CA courts, to calculate your parenting time percentages if you do not want to pay for one of the online web services that make the calculations.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

I have a child custody question. I live in Florida, never
I live in Florida, never married to my son's father. We separated when my son was only 2 years old. We owned a home together so we continued to live together as roommates until we short sold our home when my son was 5 years old. We did not want to get the courts involved so we just verbally agreed that my home would be the primary home and my son's father would only keep him every other weekend however he was able to see him anytime he wanted and could pick him up anytime during the week as long as he came home to me every night. We did that for about 4 and a half years until the summer of 2016 when my son's father informed me that he wanted to keep my son half the time once the school year started. I was completely against the back and forth of sharing my son during the school year but his father threatened to take me to court and I didn't want a judge telling us when we could see our child so I agreed to a 3/1/3 schedule. Mon. - Wed. with one parent, Thursday with the other, then Fri. - Sun with the other and we switch each week. My son at the time wanted more time with his father so that was the other reason I agreed to it. There's nothing in writing, just text messages and verbal conversations. My son now regrets wanting to go along with the shared custody and wants more time with me. He is also not doing well academically anymore although I can't be certain this is the reason but I would like to go back to my son staying with me while he's in school. His father refuses and says now that it doesn't matter what our son wants, he's his father and he wants 50/50. Is there anything I can do? … read more
