This post is a place for us to share advice, questions and personal stories about child custody.

Here are some tips from the moms in this group:

  • Put children's needs first
  • Don't talk negatively about the other parent/minimize tension and agression
  • Pick your battles
  • Assure children that both parents love them
  • Be creative with visitation when it comes to friends, activities and holidays

Not at all, I'd bring it up, especially if you have proof or documentation.  I'd also save any texts/recordings from him in case they can be used against him.

He isn't endangering the lives of the children by driving without a correct id. If he doesn't have a drivers license that is one thing. I don't know if that would even be considered endangerment if he didn't.

It sounds like going back to court is a good thing.  How scary!
