But suddenly your ex-spouse isn't agreeing with some aspects of your custody and visitation agreement.
When Agreements Fall Apart
Here are a variety of ways that custody and visitation agreements can often fall apart.
- Your ex-spouse is repeatedly showing up late for visitation exchanges or missing them completely. Or she might be discouraging your children from spending time with you.
- If you and your ex-spouse share legal custody, you both have a right to be involved in major decisions relative to the education, health and welfare of your children. Excluding each other from key decisions means that you are violating your agreement.
- You are not allowed to attack your ex-spouse in front of the children, lie to the kids about their father or mother, or denigrate your ex-spouse. Causing your children to think negatively about your ex-spouse will affect the court's opinion of you.
- If you allege that your ex-spouse is being abusive to your children and those charges are false, you will put your own custody rights at risk.
- If you have a problem with substance abuse, you can expect to have your drug habit negatively impact your child custody and visitation rights
