There is no "form" available for this. Your agreement is sufficiently complicated that you should hire an attorney to draft a contract for you. This will serve to avoid any misunderstandings that might create bad feelings in the future. You also need an attorney to evaluate and explain risks associated with "sharing" assets in an account with another. Finally, the bank is not bound by the agreement between account holders. If either party fails to comply with the terms of the agreement, it is not going to be the banks problem. It will be you and/or the other party.See question
I am in a current custody dispute where my son's father refused, on a few occasions, to see our son. Recently a judge order temporary physical custody to the father in hopes he will wisely make up for the 2 1/2 years he decided to miss out on. Mot...
The answer to your questions depends on how the wording of the order for custody and access. If there are no specific provisions for grandmother's access, mother may have to pick the child up and bring him to grandmother's home. What the judge "stated" in open court may provide guidance but it does not decide the dispute. If the judge intended grandmother visitation, he can asked to amend the order at mother's request .See question

What the bank told you is it's lending policy. You can look for another lender who is willing to make such a loan. You might also refinance the first mortgage for a higher amount. A lender could view such a transaction more favorably if the money taken out is devoted to improving or repairing the home.See question

You are entitled to child support. You may be entitled to alimony. You may be entitled to remain in the family home with your child and he may be required to pay some or all of the mortgage.
Child support as calculated by the child support guidelines is easy to predict. Go onto the Maryland Department of Human Resources calculator to get an idea of what this would be. Alimony and help with the mortgage payments depends.
You need an experienced divorce lawyer.

My daughter is 4 years old. She mainly lives with me in Maryland but her father lives in Delaware. We share legal and physical custody. But her primary address is my house. He insisted that she go to a private school and that he would pay tuition....
You are not overthinking. There are many issues to be considered.
What is best for your daughter? If she started in private school in Delaware what assurances do you have that he would continue to support her in that school?
Is there an consent order that the two of you can agree upon as being in the best interest of your child?
What do you mean that her "primary residence" is with you? What is the schedule?
If he is attempting to change her primary residence, that could be a major life change for her. He should not be able to do so without your agreement.
If not a "red flag", this sounds like a "fork in the road". You need a lawyer you trust and talk this over with him/her.
Judge ordered me sole physical custody and the father joint legal. The father didn't like this ruling so he appealed it and said he will keep appealing til he gets the ruling he wants.
He has one appeal to Court of Special Appeals. After that, Court of Appeals has discretion to allow an appeal to that court. That second level appeal would be unlikely unless there was an important legal issue that the Court of Appeals wanted to consider. Appeals are successful in approximately 1 of 10 cases.See question
