More facts are needed to answer this question. How long has father not seen the child. What is the general consensus of the judges in your court system. One of the factors that the court should be looking at to award joint custody and whether the two of you can communicate. However the court is used to dealing with no-communicative couples which doesn't necessarily prohibit joint custody. You might consider meeting with a Parent Counselor together to work on your issues.
I agree with both attorneys. However, it gets a little complicated because not only do you have to have personal service of the 3301(d) affidavit, you then have to serve them with a document titled "Notice of Intention to Request Divorce Decree" and you need to give them 20 days to respond. Then you have to file a "Praecipe to Transmit the Record."
You have a court order. She is in contempt. You can ask for makeup time. If you know where she lives I would take the court order to the police and have them come with you to the house to get your daughter for the weekend. I would call the police when the men were following me and ask the police to determine what is their purpose and then I would file a complaint against them for whatever the police advise i.e. stalking, harassment etc.
I consider myself a Christian lawyer. However, it is not the religious affiliation but rather the character of the individual that determines how your case is handled. I have had people contact me that have had so-called Christian lawyers handle their case and not care about the people involved. You need to meet the attorney and discuss their philosophy. Integrity is important.
The simple answer is yes, after a certain period of time but you will be notified first. However, now that you have been separated for two years you can file a 3301(d) affidavit and move the case before a judge or master. If you qualify financially you can get assistance from a lawyer at a reduced rate. Some courts also have assistance to help you finalize the case yourself.
I wouldn't approach it that way. Have you tried to contact the school to find out why they're contacting the third-party? I would give them the court order that shows you have shared legal custody and then contact them first
