You should ask the attorney who handled your case since he or she is familiar with everything. If she is in violation of the order, your proper recourse is to file a contempt petition. Custody should only be withheld in the event of an emergency or other serious circumstance in which you believe there is a risk of harm to the child. If you do believe there is a risk of harm to the child and you decide to withhold custody, you should immediately file a special relief petition.See question

Children have expressed strong preference over the past year (2 boys ages 5 and 9) to live with Mom during the school week and see Dad on the weekends. This is opposite of the child custody situation currently in place. The child custody situation...
Preference of the child is only one of the 14 factors that a judge must consider when making a custody determination. The burden will be on you after filing a petition to modify custody order that it is clearly in the child's best interest for the schedule to be modified as you suggest. The ultimate determination will be in the sole discretion of the hearing judge after hearing testimony from both sides. Mediation only works if both sides are able to get on the same page as to what is in their child's best interest. A guardian ad litem makes recommendations to the court as to what is in the child's best interest after interviewing the child and talking with the parents.See question

If your husband's disability claims are being denied it may be because he is not actually disabled. In that case, domestic relations will establish an earning capacity for him based upon his prior earnings and general ability to earn an income. You will owe him approximately 40% of the difference between your net incomes per month. You will then subtract what you pay him from your income and add it to his and those are the adjusted monthly net incomes that will be used to calculate child-support. The 20-year old is an adult who will not be included in the support calculation other than you may be imputed a rental income making your earnings higher for the support calculations. What he owes you for child support will be subtracted from what you owe him in spousal support.See question

The involuntary termination hearing can go either way. It is within the hearing judge's discretion to decide whose version of the facts to believe or disbelieve. It is the burden of the mother to prove to the judge that the facts of the case warrant termination of your husband's parental rights. Your husband can present the valid defense that his lack of participation in the lives of the children was primarily caused by the mother's efforts to thwart his relationship with them rather than a lack of interest on his part and that even if he should have done more, it would not be in the children's best interest for his rights to be terminated. In the end, it is solely up to the judge.See question
