We need to change our parenting plan, because we're not flying cross-country every week.
See a lawyer immediately to make sure you are providing appropriate notice and to help you modify your parenting plan. This is a potentially complicated area. If the two of you agree on all aspects of the new schedule it can be done by consent, for a lot less money than if you must have a judge decide on the new schedule.See question

I think my marriage is able to be saved. Can I tell the judge and them order consoling?
If you are proceeding on the basis of irreconcilable differences, otherwise known as an uncontested divorce, then you may be able to ask the court to enter an order of reconciliation if your spouse agrees. In my experience it is unlikely that the court will order the parties to marriage counseling, however the court will usually suspend divorce proceedings in order to provide time for the parties to reconcile their marital differences with the help of counseling. Again it is likely that your spouse will need to agree to this. You should speak to your attorney about your options and how to proceed. Good luck.See question
The mother of my children and I have equal custody and are both primary. Their mother is having a male stay overnight while the children are present. I have reasonably asked for her not to have male visitors over while the children are there. Stat...
Frequently parties will agree to a mutual "paramour" clause restricting the exposure of dating partners to the children. Without such a clause, your ex is within her rights to have overnight guests unless to do so is harmful to the children. Speak to an attorney who can analyze the facts in greater detail. You may be able to pursue a modification of your order to address this issue.See question
her father is an alcoholic. hes verbally abusive. threatens suicide in my daughters presence. we have joint custody. the cops were called recently bc he was shooting guns in the air. she doesn't get along with him at all. they fight constantly.
With all of those issues, the child's preference is the least of what the judge would need to consider to determine that her best interests are not served by living in that environment. See a lawyer as soon as possible to discuss your options to pursue a change to your current order.See question

You need to retain an attorney prior to "the day of". You are only entitled to a court appointed lawyer in criminal cases and a very limited type of civil cases. There is no right to appointed counsel for a divorce.See question
after a one night stand I am the obvious father of a 4 month old. I have physical custody the mother has basically given him to me. when he was born her stepdad signed the birth certificate after finding out the baby had drugs in his system,to kee...
You need to first establish paternity and have the birth certificate changed to reflect you are the father. The mother can surrender her rights under certain circumstances. This is a complex area of the law and you need a lawyer. Hopefully you can find one you can afford because this is not an area you should attempt to handle on your own.See question
Do I need a job to be Awarded primary custody? I am actively looking for one to be sure I'll be able to support myself and my children, however I'd like to file as soon as possible. My husband is military and would probably agree to giving me pri...
I agree with both of the previous responses. The court would likely consider your role as a primary caregiver/stay home mother as strong evidence you should be the primary parent. I agree you should sit down with a lawyer ASAP who is familiar with military divorces. Several Shelby Coubty attorneys are suitably experienced in that area and family law. Good luck.See question
the mother is the custodial parent but my 11 year old wants to stay with me, the father. i also have a daughter and another son. they are 13 and 8 years old.
The child can never choose with whom he or she will reside. The court can consider the reasonable preference of the child at 12 or older but in my experience most judges do not give that preference a lot of weight. The court must consider all of the circumstances and make a decision as to the child's best interests.See question

Children's issues like parenting schedules, decision making and child support are often complicated and difficult to resolve. If you and the other parent have agreed upon all issues for your parenting plan then you should be fine selecting an inexpensive lawyer.See question
