Thank you for your answer. Space is ltd. or I would have said I was going to do just that. I have taken parenting class, anger mgmt., drug/alcohol assess all successfully completed. What other steps can I do to improve my chances? I was thinking of incl. letters from those who know me as a parent, does the court allow that? I want to be thorough and do whatever I can the first time. How do I ask court for telephone hearing? Is there a form for that?
