No additional visitation to do more sports

A dad in Fairfax asked a judge to give him more visitation time with his sons. The reason? He wanted to maximize his participation in the social, recreational and sports groups of his sons, ages 9 and 11. The boys play football, baseball, basketball and soccer. Mom expressed concern, testifying that the dad put an “emphasis on sports above all else.” Plus, when he coaches the boys, he yells a lot, she testified. The trial judge, applying the standard, found a change in visitation wasn’t “in the best interests of the children.” The appeals court backed him up in a new decision, Duda v. Hunt.
