Texas divorce lawyerQuestion:

My ex-wife and I share child custody, though she has the majority of parenting time during the day.

When our child stays with my ex during her parenting time, she often has her mom over. I know she is our child's grandma, but this woman has mental issues and is teaching our child inappropriate behaviors.

Is there anything I can do to stop it? Can I petition the court to restrict my ex-wife's mom from watching our child?

Utah divorce lawyerQuestion:

My divorce question is about the right of first refusal clause.

During my parenting time that includes overnight visitation, I sometimes have to work so my fiance or my parents stay with my children.

My ex-wife now wants to take our children on those nights when I work by stating she is using her first right of refusal. However, in our divorce decree, there is no such claim about a right of first refusal clause.

She has never tried to exercise a right of first refusal before, and my work hours have not changed since our divorce so she knew I would be gone some of those nights I have overnight visitation.

Will my ex-wife be able to exercise the right of first refusal even though the decree does not state anything about that right?

protecting fathers rightsJudith Sandalow is the executive director of the Children's Law Center, which provides legal services on behalf of at-risk children and their families.

She recently filed a lawsuit on behalf of two fathers against the District of Columbia and a child welfare agency alleging infringement on the rights of children and their parents - who live outside of D.C. - to live together.

These fathers were denied access to their children even though their kids were removed from their mothers' care because of neglect and put in foster care.

Sandalow talked with DadsDivorce.com editor Matt Allen about this lawsuit and why these fathers rights were ignored.

advice on divorceQuestion:

I do not have child custody of my son and for a variety of reasons have not seen him in six years.

I am gravely ill and want to have a relationship with him before I die so he knows I am his father and I always loved him.

How can I force his mother to allow me to see him and form a father-son bond that we never had because of unfair child custody laws?

divorce mythsBy Julie Garrison

Special to DadsDivorce.com

Society needs to be educated on the necessity of shared parenting and the innumerable benefits it affords to children.

If not, children will continue to be denied the foundation of an equal relationship with both of their parents.

There are longstanding attitudes about shared parenting that have influenced the public and the present family law system. Most of these attitudes are fiction and need to be debunked.
