Q: Looking for information regarding my legal rights as a noncustodial parent believing my child to be in an unsafe environ
Environment. My ex wife has recently entered into a relationship with her blood cousin (Adopted out of the family as an infant, he found her looking for his family). She allowed him to move in with her and my nonverbal autistic daughter without even meeting him - their entire relationship was based off of text and phone messages. Up until this point, I have been handling everything - doctor's appointments, health insurance, etc, not only for my daughter, but for her as well (She has severe anxiety, and some physical issues as well). Now, she has cut off all contact, and I am concerned that the decisions she is making are not in my daughter's best interest. I am trying to resolve things without a problem, but I do not think she will cooperate, and will use my daughter against me when I am unwilling to help her and her new SO (who also has anxiety and health issues) with rides, errands, etc. What can I do?
A: If you have a divorce judgment , then the terms of the Judgment or Separation Agreement incorporated in the Judgment as to Custody and visitation, if applicable will be in force until Modified. You have made statements of concern for your child's well-being and a Modification and Motion for Temporary Orders with Affidavit in Support should be done ASAP. There could also be a Contempt action commenced if she is violating visitation orders and not in communication with you about the child . You should seriously consider having representation as it appears that there are many issues involved in your situation.
