    Should you decide to proceed with the divorce, I strongly suggest you hire counsel to assist you. You have property interests that need to be protected. An attorney will educate you as to the principles of community property that govern property rights of married persons and division thereon upon dissolution of marriage. Regarding the business, it appears that you two started this business together and built it from the ground up during the marriage, making it a community asset. You...

    Your question does not specify what issue the child would want to address. I will answer your question as if you were asking about whether a child would be permitted to state his/her wishes regarding which parent to live with in a disputed child custody/visitation matter.

Retaliation in response to one parent's seeking a child support order is not a valid, legal basis to divest the other parent of his/her custodial rights.

  5. How do I go about obtaining supervised visitation via child custody?

    Since the safety and welfare of your child may be at stake, I suggest you contact an attorney or make an appointment with the Family Law Facilitator to discuss filing an 'Order To Show Cause' for modification of your currently existing child custody/visitation orders. Depending on the circumstances, you may be able to proceed on an ex parte basis and seek to obtain temporary orders pending a full hearing if you feel the matter is urgent and there may be, among other possible requirements, an...
