In the summer of 2007, Mr. D retained the firm for assistance with his custody, parenting time and child support issues he was currently facing. He was never married to his ex-girlfriend, but they had two very young children together. Immediately upon the couple’s breakup, the mother began controlling and obstructing the father’s parenting time. When the father initially retained our services, the mother was allowing him to only have very little contact with his two children.
The mother went so far as to demand that both children be placed in third party day care, despite the fact that the father’s work schedule was the opposite of the mother’s work schedule. In addition, he was eager and available to provide care for the children all day long (since he worked nights). The mother was demanding sole legal custody and made unilateral decisions for the children’s welfare without the father’s participation. After we took the case to trial, the judge ruled that the mother’s behavior was obstructive and inappropriate. The judge ordered that Mr. D receive joint legal custody, along with 50% parenting time.
