I have had joint conservatorship of my nephew for over three years along with his bio mom and dad. It is my sister's son. I am the conservator with rights to establish residency. His bio father filed for custody a year ago. We have had a social study, which went in my favor. My nephew has his an ad litem, and although he has not officially ruled in our favor with his recommendation, my lawyer said that he was in our favor. Here are my questions....
His dad's visitation order says that he can pick him up after school every other Friday, but I have found out that he is picking him up early.... once to take him to a dental appointment behind my back. Other times, the sign out log simply states "Dad" under the reason for signing the child out of school. Is this allowed? I have a huge problem with him not communicating regarding appointments and picking him up just because he got to town early and doesn't want to wait for school to end. Also, when we go to court, is it possible that I can recoup some of the legal costs? One of his big arguments during the social study stated that he has more financial opportunity for the child.... since he admits that, does that not open the door for more child support to be awarded as well as legal fees?
