I am in Illinois and currently get every Tuesday, every other Thursday, and every other weekend (plus alternating holidays) with my child.
I want to see about making Thursdays EVERY week (not every other week).
I know this is more than some Dads get--I don't care.
I have joint legal and joint physical custody of my child.
What are some good reasons to present to a judge for the additional time? The real reasons are I want more time with my son..it's quite simple, really. But I have a feeling the judge won't go for just that.
My ex refuses to even discuss it with me, and now we are heading to court-mandated mediation before we go to court...
