Although not in the order, it has been understood through Judge transcripts that I, the father, shall have first right to the children when mom is working and I am home. Even as the last calendar hearing, the Judge repeated herself before scheduling a date for the custody hearing.
So now she has stated that the children will not be getting off of the bus as they have for the past 2 years and she has made other arrangements. These arrangements are for her daughter of 17 to pick them up from school. This same daughter is the one whom I expressed concern the other day for having my 10yo son in the front seat of her cobalt. Although I expressed my concern she still insists on letting her drive the kids around just to get to me.
So I have call into my attorney as well as I will be calling the Judge and speaking to her secretary as I did before explaining the situation. This has helped in the past and has benefited me the last time she played these games and listened to her lawyer.
From a legality standpoint with the school they must follow procedure and make sure they get on the bus as no minor is permitted to pick the children up. So I am hoping that the school follow procedure and do exactly has they should after my call to the principle.
This teen has physically put her hands on my daughter and forcibly removed her from her from her bedroom and has left marks on her arms. However, this teen will become an adult in a couple of weeks, then I do believe it will be a whole new ball game when I find marks on my daughter left on her from and adult whether it be her sister or not.
Now the local police dept wants me to come down and file a report to state that he in fact was in the front seat without a seat belt. And yes, there were other parents present when this happened. Unfortunately I could not cause a seen because I am the manager of the team.
I think the best thing is to keep up the same routine as it has been for the past 2 years.
