After requesting a mod. on child support my ex tried to sue for custody. We have since done 2 social studies and the rec is for him to have extended. We have mediation next month and I am trying to write up my position. I don't know what to put in it and what would be helpful/harmful. Is there someone who can read it to tell me if its good? Theres no reason for a change, other then him not wanting to pay support. I have concerns: long commute (over an hr, she gets car sick), his history with speeding and school zones, him not giving her prescribed meds, and his engagement (more kids, less room) . He's also made false accusations with CPS, and even tried to involve her by coaching. I want to be fair, but don't like the recent rec (he'd have her over 50% of the time)We have tried to come up with an agreement, but for that to happen he expects me to move closer to his house, in other words I do what he wants or he won't try to compromise. I've lived here over 10yrs, my kids have lived here their whole lives. Our daughter is almost 9 and I don't want to uproot her from all her friends and the only school shes been to. Not only that, shes in after school activities, which he wants me to take her out of. Every time we try to come to an agreement he then adds something like me moving and expects me to agree with whatever he wants.
