Pharah is on a distinguished road

I have had a similar experience with my ex. In 2010 while still in court, I had asked to go on a family vacation with my son and my new spouse. My ex refused to give her permission, so I entered a motion in court (at the time she was trying for sole custody). In the motion, I provided all the plans for travel, where we would be staying and who would be going (my son, my spouse and I and my parents).

In court, the Judge asked my ex why she wouldn't give her permission and she stated that she was concerned I would leave my son unattended on the beach somewhere. She sounded like a fool and the judge pointed that out saying that I was no less capable of caring for our son then she was. The judge promptly gave us a court order to travel and in the final order included that we did not need the alternate parents permission to travel with our son.

Although not all situation and judges are the same, I would think this IS a slam dunk.
