If the abuse is *physical* abuse, you should contact the Children & Youth agency for the county in which your sister lives. Even if it's only mental/emotional abuse, I'd contact that agency and let someone know what's going on. Hopefully they'll open up an investigation and get to the bottom of...Read more »

Every day/night at least once a day during my custodial period the father, stepmother, and sometimes step-siblings ask son to call them. They are on the phone for no less than 5 mins, sometimes 15-20 mins. If I'm lucky, I get 1-5 mins.
If son gets to see them briefly during an event, am I... Read more »
Yes, you should still allow the call. If you believe that the manner in which these calls are being handled is unreasonable, then you will probably have to file a petition with the court to request clarification and perhaps some rules-setting.
Email from CP: "I have asked David to stay out of our decision making. I have also been informed that he alone is trying to get information regarding Ryan, I do not agree to this."

Are you asking if your ex is wrong in refusing to deal with your husband? Maybe he's being unreasonable but he's not legally wrong. If you believe that it's imperative that your husband be permitted to run interference, you may have to go to the Court with that request.
My daughter left to go live with her biological father back in December of 2018. He went for full physical custody. I have a mediation coming up for this; however I am not disputing him getting custody. Do I have to show up?

If you do find yourself in court, though, and you have retained an attorney to represent you, you may eventually be able to receive an award of counsel fees. You might also try bringing up that you keep having to miss time from work, pay a sitter, or other...Read more »
He has the rights of parenthood if he can prove that which I assume he can. However they are limited, and if he has threatened you getting a pfa would be a first step, and you will need to speak with family relations and ideally a family law attorney about other options.
He has had her for 4 years from never giving her back to me amd is now not taking care of her properly he has an opend case with cny in another county . I want to take her to live with me and he is going to get aggressive and call the police . Will I get introuble for taking my daughter from him?
It would probably depend on what the father has to say about this. You'd probably do yourself a service by consulting with an experienced family law ttorney in you area to discuss the facts and your options.
You would -- unless there's some other agreement between you and your ex, like to alternate years in which a parent can claim the child (ex. Mother gets even years, Father gets odd years). Otherwise, IRS regulations go with the parent that has the child most of the time.
