Do you think it is important to have a court order in place? Personally I think it is very important to have a court order in place regardless if parents get along because two parents getting along can always change. I think if two parents can get along they should still get a court order and if they don't want to follow it that is their perogative. I have a court order. My ex and I were getting along well and then he wanted everything his way and started getting verbally abusive because I wouldn't give him his own way so we went back to following the CO. What is your opinion on CO's?
