I have to agree with previous post!

Craig Yoas

Even when the family counselor is involved the court does not use their input. The way the law is now, all one parent has to do is say "no" and there is no change. This state has absolutely no means of protecting a father that wants to be involved in his children's lives in equality not just paying support when the "custodial parent" doesn't want it. My marriage lasted 14 years, I lived with my ex-wife and children for 5 years before she decided she wanted me out. Then my motion for change of custody is denied based on Vodvarka v Grasmeyer? That was a one night stand and then a custody battle over a baby at 6 months. How does that compare to my situation where I have now 16 and 14 year old girls that want to spend equal time with both of their parents.

We now have automatic three year support reviews and "ordinary medical expenses" but there is never a custody review. How is that fair?

I think this is finally getting the courts to recognize that lack of cooperation between parents can be harmful to the children enough to warrant a change in custody. For too long, the court has been toothless in fighting uncooperative custodial parents. I am starting to keep a log and I will start involving the family counselor more often.
