I have primary custody of our 2 children and have for about 10 years.Over a year ago, I was served w/Petition to Modify Custody due to my prescription drug use. I have had 7 highly invasive surgeries in the past 5 years. He is basing the material change as "prescription pain addiction" and "best interests of the children". I was served and responded and I never heard another thing.I do take medicine for pain that is prescribed by my dr, but I am not addicted.At 1st my ex was telling me that I was going to get drug tested,I highly worried I have not received anything from his Atty since the original petition.If anyone thought that I was a danger/threat to my kids, they would not let an entire year pass.It is still in the back of my mind, but I have stopped the worry. Do Petitiions expire?Do I need to try and Dismiss this? Or should I just do nothing, since no one else is?
