I have joint custody for an 11 year old from a previous marriage and my ex-wife now says she wants to move to France and take our daughter with her. My daughter was born in California and has always lived there. The divorce documentation stated that the country and state of residence for the child is US / California.
I am worried that she might hire an expensive lawyer and ask me to pay for her legal fees.
My salary is between 2 and 3 time hers, but my expense and my cost of buying a new house since the divorce are such that I am already deep in dept.
My question is: is it possible a judge would order me to pay her legal cost, if she chooses to go to court to challenge an existing agreement?
