What is the name of your state?Indiana
I have been divorced almost 5 yrs and never saw a court room because my ex and I were able to reach a custody agreement. We agreed to joint custody with our 2 kids, now 13 and 10, living with their father during school, and living with me spring, winter, and summer breaks (I live in IN and he lives in NC, weekends weren't options). Because he is in the Army, I also get them whenever he is deployed. So far we have had them about 50/50 and it has worked well for us other then my ex constantly trying to keep me from picking up the kids when it is my time with them.
My ex recently notified me that he is being deployed for a year and we have made arrangements for me to pick up the kids. Well now my oldest says he doesn't want to come live with me, he wants to stay at his dads with his step mom and go to his new school (ex moved just before summer). My ex says that our son is old enough to decide when he wants to visit and when he doesn't and is considering going to court to try and change the custody agreement to allow our son to choose when and if he wants to visit me.
I don't see how a judge could rule in favor of such a thing. Especially when I have never and will never be found to be an unfit parent. I am remarried and have a child with my husband, I am also a stay at home mom. When my kids are with me they have access to me 24/7. I don't drink, I don't do drugs, and I have never been in trouble with the law.
My question is, what are the odds, how likely is it, etc. that an Indiana judge would change our custody agreement? (My ex agreed in the custody and divorce papers to give Indiana jurisdiction because it was our home of record and he is only stationed in NC)
