    Do NONE of you people who ask the same freakin' question over and over and over even BOTHER to search the board for an answer? Do you even bother to google to see what the LAW in your state says? Seriously - this question is asked MULTIPLE times every day - and the answer is always the same! Try to help yourselves a LITTLE bit already!

    Sheesh!

    CHILDREN do NOT get to choose.
    Parents should remember 3 things: Love your kids more than you hate your ex; when you have children the relationship with the other parent is until death; your children determine what type of nursing home you end up in.
    Nothing stated by me should be taken as giving you legal advice or forming an attorney/client relationship.

    I've removed the knife from my back, polished it, and will one day return it -- long after you think I have forgotten.
