Q: Mother is refusing to bring child to father and stepmothers house on his visitation days bc he is with the military.
My husband has shared custody of his 5 year old son. He is in the Army and has been called away for training for the month. Our question is, is his sons mother allowed to keep him from coming over to our home with me (his step mom) and his baby sister while my husband is with the military? We have asked that she still bring him to us on our regularly scheduled times and she is refusing to bring him at all. What rights do we have in this situation?
A: You need to consult an attorney. The law provides that a service member's family can still have access to the child during deployment.
