    You don't mention where he resides in the United States, so I can only speak about Florida. Other states may have different laws. If he resides in Florida at least six months prior to filing for divorce he can get a dissolution of marriage in Florida. In Florida, since you are married a very short time (15 months) alimony/spousal support may not be awarded to you although you might possibly get some "bridge-the-gap" and/or durational alimony for a few months, but you must prove that there is a...

    In reviewing your question, since custody was established by prior court order for child support with the child's residence established at a specific address here in Florida, it appears that you must first comply with the Florida's recently enacted relocation statute. Florida's relocation statute - F. S. 61.13001 titled Parental Relocation with a Child (enacted in 2006) - restricts the right of the custodial parent to move away to a principal residence more than 50 miles away from his or...

    I am a Florida attorney so I cannot speak to California's laws or courts. I do not believe that the fact your ex delegates the drafting of email to you violates any legal principles. Delegating important decision making to a third party might be another issue but might be impossible to prove. You can predict that your ex will claim that she made and/or makes the decisions.

    Yes, you can if you are a resident of Florida for six months or more prior to filing. You can do a substitute service of your spouse by publication. To file for divorce and serve your spouse through publication, you must take steps and then swear under oath that you have made diligent attempts to either serve your spouse or, if you do not know your spouse's whereabouts, made diligent attempts to locate your spouse. To prove this, you file an Affidavit of Diligent Search and Inquiry showing...

    Unless you are proactive in your case by filing a motion for temporary timesharing and setting it for hearing you are not going to get any relief until a final hearing is set and you go before the judge. If you are waiting for the court to do something you could be waiting a very long time. There are some judges that will keep track of the progress of a case and do something if it is languishing, e.g. issue an order to progress case or schedule a case management hearing. There are other...

    Seems like you should file for divorce and ask that a parenting plan and timesharing schedule be established.

    I don't that will get you custody. If she is entitled to child support the court will not be concerned on how she spends it. The court will become concerned if her fiscal irresponsibility places the children's welfare in danger, eg. if the electricity in her residence gets shut off or if her car gets repossessed and there is no transporation for the children., or if she gets evicted and has no adequate place for the children to live.
