I have a 10 year old daughter who’s father has been in and out of prison her whole life when the father got out of prison we went to court and had custody arrangements set in place with the courts. The father only has eight hours of visitation each week but we still have joint custody sole and physical. Even though he had eight hours per week visitation her father never executed any of his parenting time in the last year. Currently right now the father just went back in jail and waiting trial and could possibly sever 5 years in prison. With him being back in jail and possibly prison for crimes am able to go back to court to present to get full sole legal and physical custody of my daughter? And if I do so will her father have to be present for this since he’s incarcerated? I mean it’s not like he can take care of her? I’m asking since I’ll be filing with courts without a lawyer.
You're silly enough to consider fighting an important legal battle without a lawyer, but smart enough to understand that you don't know the law. Do you see any problem here?
