The custody agreement specifies that travel be shared equally. She is claiming hardship, does not own a car does not work and has had 3 additional children (with others) post our divorce. She wants me to do all of the travel approx 250 miles round trip two time a month for her to see our son. I work 60 hrs a week and provide 100 % of my sons support. Given my past experience with the California family courts I would like to hire an attorney. Do I have any obligation to provide an attorney for my ex. The current agreement has been in place for approx 5 yrs and has only been broken by my ex ( she moved out of state without any notice or attempt to work something out with me for 2 of those 5 years). and had basically no contact with our son.for that time.One attorney response to this was that I was not obligated to help my ex with an attorney but that she could always request attorney fees. Does that mean that even though she is initiating the court proceeding because she can not hold up her responsibilities that I might have to pay her attorney fee's in the event I decide to be represented?
