It won't matter what someone tells you, unless the other parent agrees with what you are told. Check your parenting agreement for resolving disputes. Typically, it will require mediation of any dispute, and if that doesn't resolve it, then it can be submitted to the court for a resolution. Talk to the attorney who represented you, or use the Find a Lawyer tab to retain a local family law attorney to review the agreement and all the facts, and advise you.

If you would like to obtain specific legal advice about your issue, you must contact a local attorney who is licensed to practice law in your state. Mr. Jaap is licensed to practice law in Ohio. He and his law firm gladly accept new clients, but they cannot accept any representation until they confirm that it will not create a conflict of interest with their existing client relationships and obtain a signed representation agreement. Accordingly, do not send them any confidential information unless and until they have confirmed their representation of you in writing.
