My son does not want to stay with his dad where he lives because his dad lives with other family members who are emotionally abusing to my son. The other family members always put him down, speak ill of me to my son. Talk about his private parts. His father makes no stand to defend our son. My son wants to see his dad but refuses to do so where he is living.
If there are orders in place regarding visitation, you must not violate them. If you want to change existing orders, you will need a family courts attorney to help you!! Good luck to you and your little man!
In no way am I offering you legal advice, and in no way has my comment created an attorney-client relationship. You are not to rely upon my note above in any way, but insted need to sit down with counsel and share all relevant facts before receiving fully-informed legal advice. If you want to be completely sure of your rights, you must sit down with an experienced criminal defense attorney to be fully aware of your rights.
Call to speak with an attorney as soon as possible. You can file for a modification of parenting time based on the above. Since you son is 14 his requests can be considered by the Court. The Court can be asked to do an in-camera interview with your son or the Court could allow him to testify. Another option is to have a Guardian ad Litem appointed who can also let the Court know your sons wishes. Good Luck.
