Question or Comment:

Hello, my name is Kevin and I
am a Divorced Dad from Kansas. I have a 3 year old daughter whom which I have
joint custody with but we set up a parenting plan in Kansas back in February
2013. I recently moved 3 hours way for a better job and the mother of my daughter
is not working with me to set up a fair schedule. She claims that if I don’t
get to see my daughter in a month at a time it is "not her problem."
She is clearly not looking at the best interest of our daughter because I love
and care for her more than anything else in this world, but this job offers
more financial stability. My ultimate question is, am I really limited to every
other weekend of visitation? And if her mom’s holiday falls on my weekend, do I
really have to wait 4 weeks to see my daughter???

Answer from Jeffrey Leving:

You should consider filing a
petition
to modify your parenting schedule based upon a substantial change in
circumstances. Oral agreements between parents modifying visitation times are
not legally enforceable through the contempt powers of the court. The fact that
your child’s mother is not working with you to set up a fair schedule might
indicate that disputes about holidays and vacations could arise in the
future. A skilled family law
attorney
should be able to advise you on how to best protect your relationship
with your daughter and to seek a parenting schedule incorporated into a court
order signed by a judge, which takes into account your personal circumstances.
I recommend you contact Shelle E. Riley at 312-807-3990, as she is a highly
skilled attorney. For educational information please visit
