I filed a petition to change child custody (my ex has primary, I want 50/50 as circumstances have changed). I provided text message screenshots between the two of us that clearly backed up the claims I was making; however, he and his attorney filed a response that said all the screenshots were...

Don't worry about the lawyer says. First, anything you add to the petition isn't considered evidence. In court, you present the evidence to the judge. But send clear copies of your evidence to the attorney ahead of time. Let the judge decide if your evidence is usable or not. But you...Read more »

You may want to consult with an attorney who can review your arrangement and provide you with guidance. There needs to be open communication, but that doesn’t mean you have to be texted non-stop with every little thing. Perhaps he is doing this because he knows it irritates you.
So I’ve been divorced for awhile now but I’m confused what to go off of. The child support addendum originally stated that I paid 50% up to $300 per child for homeschool, and I don’t have to repeat payment if my ex decided to hold them back a year. I didn’t know, but my ex marked all this... Read more »

binding and contemptible. With that track record I said because he’s broken 3 written agreements that I can understand that we will also not keep a 4th agreement.
