15years back my spouse got custody of our child and no visitation for me.
But a year after this was awarded to my spouse,we reconcilled and began to stay together like anyother couples.Upon checking with the courts in regard to our case,they stated "the case is closed".
What does this mean in legal terms? will my spouse still have custody?or would it be after a number of years if no action is taken,the case gets dissolved,thus making both parents "equally" responsible for the child.
Only custody case was brought to the court,so there was no divorce case.
Would it make it easier if my child is 16yrs,and thus voices out the choice of residing with the parent of his choice, would this erase the need to "file" or go through the legal procedures if I have to get equal custiody?
