The bottom line - there is a need to go to Court because you cannot communicate with the other parent, or parents, if you are a non-parent with the child or children in your care or custody. Going to Court is stressful for all. It upsets the whole family - the parents, children, caregivers and even grandparents and other loving family members. It usually takes a lot of time. It often requires taking a lot of time off from work for Court appearances. It is frustrating. Please understand and be prepared for this.
