We have joint physical and legal custody of our 3 children ages 12, 14 and 16. For the 9 years since our divorce we have had an agreed "custody schedule" and have discussed vacations and other items as they arise. My ex-husband has recently gotten engaged and is no longer communicating in a reasonable manner as we both had been until this point. So now the question of taking the kids on a vacation out of state comes up. I do not want to give up the time with the kids and he is not willing to "trade" days for the time I will be missing. What are my options?
If you cannot work it out, look at your divorce paperwork. It may call for mediation. Call your old local attorney.
This response is only a basic answer to your question and is not intended to be legal advise. It is your job to hire an attorney and to discuss the specifics of this question with him or her. I am not giving you specific legal advise and there is no attorney-client relationship created by my answer to your question. The choice of an attorney is an important decision that you must make and that choice should not be made upon adverting alone.
