Yes. I am sooooo sick of parents ignoring parenting plans: From the article: In July 2010, his parents finalized their divorce. Stacy Miller was represented at the time by attorney Keith Pope, who would later admit he was addicted to cocaine. She signed a parenting agreement at the behest of Pope that gave both her and her ex-husband "joint decision making" on matters including "religious upbringing."
The parenting plans are set forth by the court and in this particular case the parent's had joint decision making on religion. She knew that she was under court order to involve her husband and she CHOSE to ignore that court order making her in contempt of court. They were right to arrest her.
