You already have an attorney to ask all those questions and you are paying him to answer those. What is your question exactly? If you want to order this evaluation ask your attorney to file a motion for reconsideration and suggest pay for half of it or for all of it if you believe it will be helpful. Nevertheless your attorney is in the best position to make that call.
Keep in mind that the court may fix compensation for a 730 Evaluator's services "at the amount that seems reasonable to the court." Evid. Code Section 730. Weigh the pros/cons of coming up with the funds. As for the move away, the court will have to consider a number of factors as listed in the cases of In Re Marriage of Burgess, In Re Marriage of LaMusga and other cases concerning international move aways. Best of luck to you and your family!
My response to your question is not intended to be legal advice and does not establish an attorney client relationship. Rather, it is simply provided as a free service through Avvo.com. Until there is an executed representation agreement, no attorney client relationship has been established.
