In 2006 we divorced and we shared joint custody, he left San Diego county with our child and by the time the judge saw us he gave him full custody because our son was attending school and settled in Lompoc, Ca. He and his wife had a domestic dispute and our child was also not allowed at his house due to Cps saying our son wasnt allowed around stepmom, I was given temp. Custody in Aug. 2011 his dad left the state in Sept 2011 to live in Fl. I left the state in Oct 2011 with our son and have been here since. I dont know where his Dad lives in Fl. He wont give me the address. I want permanent orders, with child support. What do I do if case is in Ca.? Do I need to go to Ca. or file in Tx. Im just worried because the orders were temporary. Do I need a Ca. or Tx attorney?
