I am currently attempting to switch residential custody of my son from his mother to myself. I now hear that she has hired an attorney and is using a stall tactic to get him enrolled in school in palm beach county rather than Hendry county where he currently resides. she is attempting to find a place in palm beach county to establish residence prior to the court hearing. is there a temporary injunction or something i can file to stop her from doing this until after our hearing?
What order is in effect now, does she have more than 50% timesharing and what does the existing order say about school enrollment? Is she living in Palm Beach county or Hendry County? I do not know how you would object unless you can show that she is acting outside the parental responsibility order. Do you have a pending hearing and if so, you really should hire an attorney for that since now she has one. You will be at a distinct disadvantage at the hearing if you do not hire counsel.
An injunction may be the proper remedy in your situation but a review of the current orders and knowledge of the current factual situation is needed to properly advise you. You will be best served by scheduling a one to one consultation with an attorney or attorneys of your choice.
