This Visitation case is a Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act case and is being heard in Providence on October 31st. The client is the father and non-custodial parent of three children. He says that he has only been allowed to visit with the children (16, 13, and 10 years old) for 41 hours over the last 4 years. The client and his children's mother divorced in 2009. The mother was allowed to relocate, but the divorce agreement ordered that she return the children every other month to visit with the client. Client says that she never complied with that order. He also states that for 3 years she falsely told their 10 year old that he couldn't visit because he was in jail. The client has filed various motions in court which he says have not been addressed. He is seeking direct representation, but he would appreciate any advice or tips which would facilitate his attempts to have his motions addressed. If you are able to assist with this case please contact John Ellis, VLP Coordinator, at 401 421 7758 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for very much.
Pawtucket, Divorce/Custody (already mediated) – US Armed Forces Legal Services
The client and his wife have already gone through mediation and are in agreement on custody, support and visitation. All that remains is a question concerning the income tax portion of agreement. The current agreement states that parties will alternate years claiming their daughter on their tax returns. The JAG suggested they pick one person to claim child and split the funds.
