Not a bad Court Order. In hind site and tempered by the passing of 19+ years.
I was cleaning up my hard drive and found it.
Over all it is a pretty good order. I may have to back off on my usual perspective on Family Law Judges. In hind site and tempered by the passing of 19 years the Judge actually made a fair and decent ruling. Except for the pittance in CS but that is neither here nor there. It is reasonably short and to the point. This document governed our lives for 16+ years.
This visit to court was due to Sperm GrandMa filing for custody on SpermIdiot's behalf when she heard that my wife and I were dating. An order of custody and awarding CS of $110/mo was implemented a year prior to this action.
Note: 1. Contrary to the header of the order my DW and DickHead were never married. 2. Item 2e was added later to smack Sperm GrandMa for dicking around with the on time return of the Skid at the end of visitation. 3. Item 3. The sentence This may include any acceptable transportation including transportation by grandparents. was added at the same time as Item 2e due to a battle with Sperm GrandMa regarding their intent to pick the Skid up and drive him more than 2000 miles for visitation with SpermIdiot. We lost that battle. However, they never did pick the kid up at any time He flew either accompanied or unaccompanied as was age appropriate at the time. 4. In reference to item 5. DickHead has never paid a dime to reimburse us for his half of the medical costs not covered by insurance.
Here it is:

IT IS HEREBY ORDERED:
1. That at all times in which the petitioner and respondent live within 200miles of each other, respondent shall have visitation with his minor son, XYZ, date of birth XX/XX/XXX, pursuant to XXXX County Supplemental Rule 8.085.
2. That at all times which petitioner and respondent live more than 200 miles from each other, respondent will have visitation with his minor son, XYZ, as follows:
a. During 1994, respondent shall have visitation from September 25 through October 8 and from December 11 though December 22.
b. Beginning in 1995 and continuing through the summer of 1998, respondent will have visitation as follows:
(1) Two weeks in March.
(2) Four weeks in the summer. After two weeks of respondents visitation has passed, petitioner shall be entitled to up to ten days of visitation in the area where the respondent is residing. Respondent's four week visitation will be extended by the number of days which the petitioner has the child in the middle of the respondents four week summer visitation. For example, if after the respondent has had two weeks of summer visitation, petitioner visits with her son in the respondent’s area for six days, then after the child is returned to the respondent, he shall have two weeks remaining visitation. Respondents’ summer visitation shall not include the minor child's birthday on consecutive years.
(3) Two weeks in September or October
(4) December 11 through December 22.
(5) For seven days of respondents choosing, provided the seven days visitation is not within two weeks of any other visitation, and that the seven day visitation takes place in the child's area of residence.
c. For the period beginning on the date school starts in 1998 and continuing there after as follows:
(1) A five day weekend visit in September or October after September 15th in the area where the child resides so that the child may attend school during the day.
(2) On even numbered years, winter visitation beginning on the day school gets out until December 24; and on odd numbered years beginning on December 26, until the day before school starts.
(3) Every spring vacation pursuant to XXXX County Supplemental Rule 8.085.
(4) Five weeks in the summer; after two weeks of respondents summer visitation has passed, petitioner will have up to ten days of visitation in the area in which respondent is residing. Respondent’s five week summer visitation will be extended by the number of days which petitioner has the child in the middle of respondent’s five-week summer visitation. Respondent’s summer visitation shall not include the child’s birthday on consecutive years.
d. Respondent shall inform petitioner in writing at least 60 days prior to any visitation he intends to exercise. The notice shall include the dates he intends to exercise visitation. Petitioner shall respond in writing to respondent within 15 days of receipt of notice as to whether or not she will exercise visitation in the middle of the respondent’s visitation, including the dates and number of days the petitioner intends to have the minor child.
e. Times for beginning and ending visits shall be flexible to accommodate transportation arrangements. Visits shall end after an amount of time less than or equal to the period provided in this order. Thus, for example, a visit from September 25 through October 8 is a visit for two weeks, and petitioner shall be entitled to the return of the child after 336 hours (24x14) has passed since the petitioner released the child to the care of the respondent. Said differently, petitioner shall be entitled to return of the child on the final day of the visit, at or before the time at which she released the child to the respondent’s care on the first day of the visitation.
3. The cost of transportation for all visitations shall be handled by the parties as follows: Each party shall be responsible to provide transportation to bring the minor child from the child’s location to the party’s location. For example, Mr. DickHead shall arrange and be responsible for the child’s transportation to Mr. Dickhead’s residence for visitations. Petitioner shall arrange and be responsible to provide transportation back to her residence. This may include any acceptable transportation including transportation by grandparents. Each party shall cooperate in making travel arrangements for the child’s return, including driving the child to the airport, if necessary.
4. Respondent shall pay petitioner $132.00 per month for child support commencing on the 10th day of August, 1994.
5. Each party shall be responsible for one half of unreimbursed medical, dental, optical, and orthodontic expenses incurred on behalf of the minor child.
6. Both parties shall provide the other with their current address and telephone numbers.
