I want to make an appointment with an attorny, but I'm not sure of what all the questions I should ask.
The situation is: my ex has not seen, called, text or writtien - not paid child support in over two years. We currently have joint custody. I would like to ask for sole custody and ask that visitation rights be suspended.
My fear is that he'll show up and ruin my kids lives. They're both in sports through the school this year. I know, he will not care about this and if he choose to show up, he'd demand that they miss every other weekend of games or other events through their school. I feel that would not be fair to them or in their best interest.
Sole custody because legaly, I should consult with him in dealing with the kids. I'm unable to do this without knowing where he is.
I'm aslo concerned with what happens if something were to happen to me. I do not want my ex to get my life insurance to use on himself and it will not go toward our kids. Him having joint custody, he'd be in charge of their money.
What are my chances of getting these request? Do you think, I'm missing anything else to ask for?
Do I have valid concern? Valid issues to bring forth?
