Following Step's drama, I've noticed some of you are well-versed in legalese. The threads have me thinking. *** husband's daughter (easy child 2) is 12. For the past 3 years she has told anyone who will listen that she wants to spend more time at our house but her mom won't let her. When we have asked, she says she would like to be at her mom's when her step-siblings are there, and at our house the rest of the time. Her step-dad has 50/50 custody of the steps. *** We probably have enough garbage against the woman with denial to get tutoring, counseling, etc, to show a bit of a change in circumstances, but it would be a fight, I'm sure. *** Someone mentioned having the daughter file the motion to modify based on her own wants. Would that apply in this case? And how do you go about it? Hire her the lawyer and let it go from there? Does she need to have a "next friend" involved instead of us?
