    Matthew’s Answer

    I'm not exactly sure what you mean by "sister rights". It would be on your and his mother to bring a case for custody and parenting time issues.

  • I have several questions, so i'll start a few threads, but this one is about exes with kids having to talk to each other

    I have several questions. 1st) does my fiancee have to communicate with his ex? They have joint physical and legal custody of their 3 kids and he does not want to talk to her because she harasses him and is very rude to him. He says to communicat...

    Matthew’s Answer

    This should be addressed in the divorce decree. If they are to communicate he is responsible for making sure that can happen on his end, however you are not obligated to be the intermediary. She has a right to know where her children are, just as he does, and any kind of claim that "I don't have my own phone" is not likely to be compelling. He should just get his own phone if that is the case. If communications are strained, he could consider mediation or a similar process to try to iron out those issues.

    Matthew’s Answer

    I suggest continuing to work with Child Protection if they are already involved. If you cannot gain custodial rights through that process, your only other alternative is to attempt 3rd party custody, which can be difficult to win.

    Matthew’s Answer

    As counsel stated, an initial custody determination is based on the best interests of the child. The facts you mentioned would be included in an assessment by a Judge.

    Matthew’s Answer

    I suggest immediately getting an attorney in Kentucky to review your situation. Kentucky may be the appropriate state to decide custody at this point.

    Matthew’s Answer

    Judges have different opinions on if, and how, testimony from children can be introduced in a hearing. Often a third party, like a Guardian Ad Litem if appointed, can interview a child and submit their findings to the court. You may try contacting the Judge's clerk and to see if the Judge allows children's participation and if so, by what means.
