hi

 

there are no laws that would apply, though you could request a modification of the overnights, if you feel that the environment is not in the best interest of your daughter. if you feel that not having her own room or sleeping on a sofa or a floor is going to be detrimental to her physical, emotional or mental health, then file the modification. request that the overnights be halted until he can secure a residence wherein your daughter can at least have a bed to sleep in.

 

to file the modification, you can contact the clerk of the court where the current Order originated and request the documents to file. the clerk cannot give you advice but can provide the forms to file.

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.
