Ask the Divorced Woman!

Title: Custody Issues
One of my children is living with his dad, and his dad doesn't do certain
things I consider basic, like take him to the dentist every six months, treat
the warts on his fingers, and most recently, start him with a tutor for his
Bar Mitzvah. The boy is nine. The father simply never responds to my e-mails
om subjects he doesn't wish to address. So then I call the GAL which costs
money, or the lawyer, and this costs money. Without full pressure, my ex
ignores all subjects. Any advice would be greatfully appreciated.
Is one of your goals to get custody of your nine year old? If you can
prove that the father isn't taking care of the child properly - take him
back to court for full custody! Have it so he pays for court costs!
Short of taking this through the legal system - I don't think there is a
lot more that you can do...
Sorry, this is probably what you don't want to hear but only recourse is
through the courts.
