Du Bois, PA asked in Child Custody for Pennsylvania

Q: Joint legal custody, summer visitation coming up. My son has a work permit I did not sign an acknowledgement for...

I was just informed three days prior to my first summer visit that he was scheduled to work during my work hours, and requires me to transport him. I never signed anything stating he would be working or what his schedule would be, his mother did. I am unable to transport him to work due to having to work myself, and I am concerned my son's mother will not allow me to have the children if I cannot. Is it her responsibility to provide transportation to and from work if she is the one who signed the permit agreement?

A: There's nothing in Pennsylvania law that provides an answer to this; rather, the courts have the authority to make decisions in specific cases like yours. A court could order her to provide transportation, or not - and someone would have to file something to bring the issue to the court's attention. Or the parents could just work it out. If they can't, then a court will.

Best of luck to you.
