If there's a court order regarding custody, you need to enforce it. If there's no court order regarding custody, you need to get one. If there's no court order regarding custody, and the child's been living in Colorado for two years (as I understand your question) you'll need to file in Colorado. If there's a California order for custody, then you can probably file to change it in California. This is NOT a do-it-yourself project, in wither state.See question

WEre you only ACCUSED of domestic violence, or has a judge already DETERMINED that you committed domestic violence, after a full hearing? THere's a HUGE difference; if there's been a determination that you committed domestic violence, under California law that IS enough of a reason for the children "not to be with" you, I.e. a judge must PRESUME that an award of sole or joint custody to you is not in the best interests of the children.See question

My ex-girlfriend was given custody because she lied. I wasn't able to prove it then, but now can prove she was committing welfare fraud in two states at the time throughout our custody case. It's been 9 months since the judge awarded her custody.
A judge is going to be MUCH less interested in whether your ex was lying about "welfare fraud" nine months ago than he (or she) is going to be in what's actually been happening with your kid since then. Who's been doing what parenting?See question

If the school is in California, and it's a California custody order, then you should call the school's attention to Cal Family Code 3025: ": "Notwithstanding any other provision of law, access to records and information pertaining to a minor child, including, but not limited to, medical, dental, and school records, shall not be denied to a parent because that parent is not the child's custodial parent."See question
We will never make it as a married couple and we both know it.
