Hi. I'm looking for suggestions - legal opinion. I just divorced and the judge is going to decide on visitation. However, the judge has given a temporary verdict giving me two weekends a month.
My ex-wife (Taiwanese) is obviously brain washing my 1st grade daughter. When I go to pick up my daughter she just cries and makes different excuses for not going out with me. We used to be so close and following my ex-wife's June visit to the States my daughter has come to be scared of me.
I went to her school on Tues. Afterwards the teacher said I could start having lunch with her so that I could spend more time. However, today, after meeting my ex-wife, the teacher said, "I need to consider your daughter's opinion (something my ex-wife has repeatedly said) and she told me upon coming to school today that she did not want you to come here to eat lunch with her."
I seem to have a judge that is favorable to me. After the first court appearance she issued what I would consider a very positive judgement - informing my ex-wife to cooperate. However, my ex-wife does not seem to agree with the judge.
My ex-wife has stated that she wishes to "delete" me from their lives and wrote an e-mail saying I'd "lost them forever". Now what I'm wondering is is there any kind of precedent for asking the judge to grant me the right to care for my daughter myself given her continued actions to brain wash my daughter. Thanks
