1.) I would like to retrieve a van that is in my name. We are currently separated and in the process of divorce. I did not take the van when I left, but I would like to gain access to the van. She does not use it and I have more of a need for it. Can I legally get a police officer to escort me there to have her give me the keys and retrieve my van. Again, the van is in my name and I have the title.
2.) A child support order was put in place that is based on joint custody because the STBX finally decided that I could see the girls 3 nights a week. The STBX is not happy about it because her decision to let me care for my kids those 3 days of the weeks has lowered the amount of child support she was granted. I heard her ask how could she get it modified. She was told that when the situation changed she could have the support order modified. I know her M.O. and I feel that she is going to keep the girls from me to say that I no longer care for them 3 nights a week. She will do this just to get more money. I do not want have my kids taken away from because of her selfishness. Should I be proactive and file for joint custody, or have a visitation agreement put into place?
