and do they calculate support based on tax returns or based on facts contradicting tax returns? can new attorney send new discovery?
Contingency fees in family law can't be done, legally and ethically, in California.
If by "they", you mean the judge, child support and spousal support calculations are based on the evidence that's presented. If the evidence is inconsistent, then the judge has to decide which evidence is more believable (that's the "judging" part of the job).See question

CPS is the LAST resort. Your FIRST remedy is to go back to family court and ask to change the custody order. Then the first question is, what do you want the judge to order? If ex-W is not properly protecting the child, are you in a position to have more custodial time? If Ex-W has gotten a restraining order against bf, is your child still in any danger?See question

What he's not addressing is his obligation to support you and the children while the divorce is pending, which, for three kids, and you, is roughly 55% of his GROSS paycheck. (That's right, if his GROSS pay is $5,000 per month, he'll probably be ordered to pay about $2,600 in combined child and spousal support.)See question

Was a support order ever made in Nevada? If so, then it can be registered and enforced in California. If you claim that Nevada did not have jurisdiction to enforce the support order, you'll need to move to vacate it in Nevada. Or, since someone's going to get a support order enforced against you sooner or later, you could spend the money paying support for your kid, instead of your lawyer's kid.See question
What is considered "full" for financial disclosures in a prenup? If I own part of a business, do I need to include all business assets, or just the value of the business? Is a professional appraisal required, or can values be estimated? Thanks!
General answer is "The more disclosure, the better". How much you need to disclose about the value of a business depends on the business, and how much of it you own. Enforceable prenups (why would you want the other kind?) are NOT do-it-yourself projects; speak to a good EXPERIENCED attorney.See question

If you have a forensic accountant, he is supposed to explain to you, your attorney and the court (in that order) how he he or she got to the numbers he did; that's his job. If you have an attorney, speak to her. If you don't, then get one. Forensic accounting issues in family law are not a do-it-yourself project.See question
