    Unfortunately, at this point, the Court wouldn't allow this. However, that doesn't mean that the Court will not grant your request it in the future (as his contact significantly decreases or is nonexistent) . There are many Domestic Attorneys on this site who would charge a small consultation fee to shed light on this issue.
