Seperation agreement language

Limited contact should have been defined in the agreement. However, since it isn’t it really would be up to the parents to define. But I would make the assumption that it would definately mean no unsupervised time with 3rd party.

If the agreement does not define limited contact, then the court would apply the most common and logical definition for this language. It would be interpreted in the way the court believed most reasonable people would interpret it. I realize that I have not given a very clear explanation, that is because the language in your agreement is murky. How much time is your child spending with this third party?

Agreement says that children have limited contact with third party… .What does “limited contact with third party” constitute? One hour, 3 hours, etc? We feel STBX is in breach. . please help.
