Q: My daughter has conflicting diagnoses. ADHD from some dr’s , autism from others. My ex doesn’t want her overnight at my house during the week and is citing the diagnosis as a reason. Are there precedents about this and the courts not allowing overnights during the week due to a child having special needs?
A: David’s Answer: There are really no precedents on something like that as it’d be fact-specific. That said, generally the non-custodial parent does not get overnight visits in the middle of the week when the child would otherwise be going to school.
