Re: Decree/Custody

Because of the new living arrangement, the father should file and action for a change of custody and support. If the mother was ordered to maintain health insurance and to pay half of any uncovered expenses and failed to do so, the father can file an action for contempt. Feel free to contact my office for further consultation on this matter.
