Yes. Question is how long ago did she leave and where is your daughter. Which state has Jurisdiction depends upon that answer. Check out my website where I have the link to the the UCCJEA statute that determines which state has jurisdiction. Because your spouse is in a different state, your case has special issues. If I were you, and I am not being self serving, I would speak to an attorney. Feel free to either call myself or a colleague. We could help you out tremendously.
You better deal with this situation soon because if it continues to escalate someone is going to have that DV injunction filed against them. I would hire an attorney soon to take preemptive measures. This is no laughing matter and you don't want your time sharing to be affected.
I agree with Mr. Rosenfelt. Additionally you will need some language in your settlement agreement to deal with your soon to be ex wife and her taking your child to PR. You don't want this to happen again. You will have multiple options and an attorney can help guide you.
That is a huge amount of meney owed. Over how long has that accrued? Does your ex have the ability to pay the amount owed or any portion? If so, he might be put in jail until he pays that purge amount. Your iasue also involves timesharjng. I would consult an attorney ASAP to get the money that is owed to you as well as deal with your timesharing/custody issue. If the cost of an attorney is holding you back, there are creative options to deal with it. Also, because your ex is in contempt...
Among other things, alimony is based upon need and ability to pay. Feel free to check out my website where I discuss the issue and have links to the relevant alimony statute. Also, were you remarried? That answer determines property distribution. If I were you, I would call an attorney. Feel free to call myself or a colleague. I think you need my/our help.
Yes. You can file. Please feel free to check out my website where I explain the process. Feel free to call myself or a colleague to help you. Just to let you know your chills support child be affected due to the fact he is supporting another child. I would hire an attorney if I were you to ensure that your child is taken care of. Good luck.
