Q: I have a daughter we share custody. And I have a question.
Her father has a crazy work schedule and it changes often. I am not working and I am available 24/7. I am willing and able to keep her on all the days he works and he can have her any day he’s off and he is available to have her. But he wants to do one week he has her and one week I have her and his mom will be doing everything for my daughter while he’s working , when I am available to do it and want to do it! We love literally 5 miles apart so that isn’t a problem. Should I have my daughter if I am available and working rather then his mother and do her school work and everything etc.
A: You can hire a custody lawyer to modify custody. But if your child is over age 5, you are obligated to contribute to her support.
A: You need to abide by the current custody order, if you would like to change this contact an experienced family law attorney to pursue modifying the custody agreement.
