My child is to be picked up by his mother from daycare at 5pm on every other Friday. I do not have to work so I am able to keep him to exercise more visitation with him. His mother says that the only way I am able to do this is if I meet my mother (whom I do not get along with), and give her my son. I don't know what I am legally able to do or request. Do I have to give my son to my mother?
That depends on the wording of your custody order, but typically third parties are permitted to assist with custody exchanges in the event one of the parents is not available at the scheduled exchange time.
The above answer is intended solely for general informational purposes and does not create an attorney client relationship. You should consult with an experienced attorney regarding all of the details of your particular situation before taking action.
Is your mother providing transportation for the child's mother? I'm not clear on your question. However, if the order does not specifically state who must do the transportation, any person the child knows and is comfortable with, may do so. If you have further questions, I suggest you consult with an attorney in person. Good luck.
You really need to review your custody orders with your attorney. Don't have one? Check with an experienced local family law attorney.
