I do not want him to have access to my son's educational records or any ability to make decisions regarding his health, education, etc. Right now we have joint legal custody so this is what I DO NOT want anymore....how do i get rid of this......I'm fine to have joint legal custody of our BIOLOGICAL SON together but I do not want him to have it for my older son
You will want to hire an attorney and file a modification of the custody agreement. The agreement is going to state that you share legal custody, and grant your ex-husband loco parentis. If there are circumstances that have changed and that warrant a change in the terms of the agreement, the court may. However, your wishes that you just don't want him to have access because it is him probably won't do anything for the Court. The Court will need real evidence of why the terms should be changed, including one party not following it, change in circumstances, etc. The Court will utilize the best interests of the child standard, so what you may think is best the Court may find differently as for your eldest son.
Best of luck!
