I was awarded sole legal and physical custody of our child because of the other parties mental instability and it being in the best interest of the child. The other party is only allowed supervised visits 4 times per year, 4 days at a time, 1 hour each day. And phone calls 4 times during the week.
The other party e-mails constantly (we don't talk on the phone), requesting to know when our child is sick, injured, potty accidents, etc.
Wants to be updated on therapy attendance. Be provided with contact info for said therapist and that I supply the therapist the other parties contact info.
Am I still required to provide all this information like I did when we had shared legal & physical custody? Or can I safely ignore these demands since I now have complete sole custody?
What am I required to provide to the other party now? We do live in separate states. The custody case is in Indiana.
Yes. You are required to provide the same information as you were previously.
