Kids are 16 and 13; Have lived with me full time for 2 years, have not seen their dad for nearly a year and have had limited to no communication with their dad, 2-3 texts during the last year, because of his lack of interest and unreliability. I even leased a house 1 block from their dad May 2011-June 2013 to provide easy access for visitation - this did nothing to his unreliability or behavior. He has never provided financial support (alimony or child support). I took a new job in June to better financially support my kids and moved to SF from LA. I notified him by mail of the move and received no response. Now he's filing ex parte for full custody. With less than 24 hr notice I am not able to attend hearing, there is absolutely no necessity for this or grounds for this request.
