    I can't tell from your question if you have court orders already. If so you will need to file for a modification. You need to think about what kind of parenting you want him to have out of the 365 days and nights available, since I'm guessing you don't want him to have zero parenting. Also if you want to move out of state, you should discuss move away orders with an attorney given the complexity of your particular case. If this answer has been helpful, please indicate below.

    You can file for a step parent adoption. You should consult with a lawyer to discuss the nuances of your case. The father would need to be served and then he will either participate in the proceedings or not

    I agree with the advice you have received. Discuss this with your new attorney right away. If he or she is in fact "amazing" they will not allow you to be bullied and will handle your issues appropriately. You are right to act quickly to protect your child's best interest.

    Perhaps you and she can agree too modify the RO to allow you to be at family events but as long as the order remains in place you have to follow it and remove yourself from situations that violate the order. If she is harassing you to the point that a protection order is warranted against her, you can pursue a county court protection order .

  7. Do I have to give my time My divorce decree states that each parent gets 2 non-consecutive weeks for parenting time vacation.

    It would seem that the way your order is written, the vacation agreement would necessarily include the other parents week since you have your own 1 week where presumably you can travel any time you want and would otherwise not need to call the week a "vacation". If you don't like it you will need to modify your orders. Perhaps the 2 of you can stipulate to a modification since it cuts both ways. Visit my website at www.apriljoneslaw.com

    The maturity of the child determines if and to what extent the wishes of the child are considered. Typically an 18 year old child would be able to dictate and live where he chooses, however, given that you are vying to be your 18 year olds caregiver, your sons circumstances in terms of his maturity requires additional analysis.

    You say you have court orders which suggests the court already made a determination as to what is in the best interest of your daughter which included having time with her father though limited. I am not sure what you mean when you say he is not supportive... Financially or emotionally or...? If you are referring to child support, you cannot withhold parenting as a penalty for not paying child support, that would mean you were violating court orders. It sounds like your child is young which...
