I was in the military when my ex wife and I divorced. She stayed in California, her home state, and I moved back to Oklahoma, my home state. We share 50% legal custody, and have agreed that the children spend spring break and summer vacation in Ok...
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.
Nope. "I changed my mind" doesn't get you an annulment. Get the Summary Dissolution package at your local courthouse, and use it. ....and next time, please think before you marry.See question
Hello, I plan on getting married on New Year's Day. Ideally, would like to do a pre-nup but I'm unsure I can get that done in time before the wedding. So I'm wondering if a post nup on California is just as legally binding? Thank you! Elka
There are some things you can do in a prenup that you cannot do in a post-nup, and post-nups are generally harder to write and to enforce. If you think you want/need a pre-nup, POSTPONE THE WEDDING!See question
Spouse has falsely reported children abducted by their mom. Mom has taken kids to her sisters out of state and learned of order today. Urgent.
Not sure who's where, who's got orders, if there are any, what state made the orders, what the orders say, and who "spouse" is.See question
Hi, I have joint legal and physical custody of my son. My work forces me to live in San Diego, whereas his mother lives 120 miles away in San Dimas. So, as a matter of practicality he attends school there and spends the weekends with me. But we h...
The school will probably do nothing; they're not obliged to interpret your custody order. Your remedy is to go back to court with Mom. Which brings us to the question, what does the custody order say is supposed to happen if one parent enrolls the child in "religious activities" without the consent of the other parent? Does it define what a "religious activity" is, for purposes of enforcement?See question
My sister received this notice regarding her son via voicemail a an hour ago, the date today is 12/2 and the hearing is on 12/5, which is a bit more than 48 hours away - she has had zero time to prepare for anything - what is an ex parte hearing a...
1. If there's "no court order currently", then what do you mean when you say your sister has "sole custody"?
2. What was the notice ABOUT?
3. Did she GO to court on the correct day, and get a copy of whatever papers her ex's lawyer filed with he Court?
4. She should take those papers to an attorney NOW.
When my divorce was finalized in CA, my ex husband was to receive an equalization payment from a 401k. I didn't make the payment and used the money to support myself and our two children. He never mentioned the money and now wants it after 8 years.
Unfortunately, not only is there no statute of limitations on an equalization payment, but if the order was for the payment of a specific dollar amount, interest may have accrued at the (very high) rate for interest on money judgments. Why wasn't he paying child support and spousal support?See question
I have recently separated from my 6 week old baby's father. I have plans to visit my family for Christmas 5hours away. He is an attorney and told me I'm not allowed to leave the county.
Unless there's a specific court order that says you cannot remove the child from the county, you can.See question
I received a scholarship in another state. I didn't know I had a child until I was already gone and they were already born; I do not have custody. I currently am not working. I spend as much time as I can with my child when I'm visiting home for h...
Yes, you're going to have to pay some child support, unless child's mother is very substantially moer wealthy than you are. "We" don't have any rights of custody or visitation, you do, if you go to court and get an order specifying your custodial/visitation time. It's your right, not the right of other members of your family.See question

DIvorces aren't "dormant"; they're either dismissed, or there's orders or a judgment. WEre there children of the marriage? ARe any of them still minors?See question
