First, thank you for all the responses to my numerous posts. Each and every one helped in some way.
My husband now has full custody of his daughter after a long, long year. This was obtained via a modification request.
My last question (maybe): [color=#BF0000]How long does it usually take a formal order to be signed by the judge and mailed off? [/color] It’s been three and a half weeks since the hearing and we’ve receiving nothing in the mail. At this point, my husband’s ex doesn’t even know there is a new order and is planning her upcoming visitation that is not supposed to take place under the new order. Does that make sense? She would normally have had visitation. The new order doesn’t permit it. She didn’t bother to show to the modification hearing.
