Question: I unfortunately am between jobs right now and do not have adequate car insurance. My ex-husband and I have joint legal custody. Is he required to provide transportation for my daughter so she can come and visit me?

Answer: It depends on the language and orders found in your divorce decree (or parenting agreement).  There is usually language setting forth the responsibilities of each parent regarding transportation for parenting time exchanges.
