What’s Cooking? Parental Rights After Divorce

Boy and Food

In the June 23, 2014 edition of People, a happy Honey Boo Boo Thompson frolics in a swimming pool looking pleasantly plump in her two piece swim suit. Obesity in children is a hot topic these days with public schools responding by imposing health foods, relatively speaking, on parents and children who had been content with tater tots, fish sticks, and catsup.

What are your parental rights after divorce? What do you do if your “ex” allows your children to gorge on fried mayonnaise sticks at their house?

Can you control what your child eats and drinks once they are in the custody of your former spouse?

During marriage, children’s diets are a reflection of their parents’ combined opinions concerning what tastes good and what is good for you. After divorce, each spouse has, within sensible limits, the right to determine what’s for dinner.

I would like to start by saying I am from TX and my ex wife tried to file a judgment in LA. I contacted a number of lawyers that explained to me that this maybe a process that they could look into.
