I have shared custody with the father of my son. He cant keep a job or a place to live. He lives with his new wives parents and my 9 yr old son has to sleep on the floor or couch at the over crowded home. The father leaves our son there and goes to sleep in an abandon house. I went to mediation and the father of our son didn't show up. The mediators report was in my favor. When we went to court today the judge is allowing the father to attend mediation. Even though he is homeless and unemployed. Is there a law that I don't know of that if a parent has 1/2 custody that he must have his own place to live and have a job? Please if anyone can help. I even have a letter from our sons teacher saying that this life style is effecting his school learning ability.
