Dont really know how to headline this question...court question I guess?

Do you think having 50/50 joint custody and visitation with your childs father should be changed if the child just started school and the father isn't available to take or pick the child up from school so you must drive to his house each morning and pick the chid up from the grandma and take him to school each morning, and dad lives outside of the school district so no buses, and also refuses to pay anything towards anything school related. Registration, $98 Tuition $140 a month, $150 school clothes and supplies, $10 a week for lunch ect.. do you think that that is grounds to have a hearing to try and modify overnight visitation on school weeknights??

  • Definately, He should at least have to hire someone to take and pick her up from school and watch her. I also think you should talk about getting half the school expenses paid.

  • Absolutely. These agreements really should be modified from time to time, as life changes.

  • Yes, if he can't do what needs to be done then he shouldn't be having 50/50 custody/visitation.
