I am processing to get divorce. I have 2 children with future ex wife. There is no order for child support and visitation. But her attorney asked me to give her $1600/month with alternative weekend visitation with children. I did not know nothing and I have agreed it temporary for children since her attorney told me that she quited job and no money. And i noticed she threw a lot of stuff like furnitures away and she is driving without driver's license(children told me).
1. I wanna get temporary order for child support, custody, and visitation from the court.
2. I want somebody to check her home that is okay for children.
3. I want her to stop driving.
What can I do for these....
You need to get proactive with your divorce case. File a Request for Order to get official custody and visitation orders in place along with support orders. http://www.courts.ca.gov/selfhelp-custody.htm?
...and stop agreeing to what her attorney is presenting without knowing your rights.
Both attorneys answers are absolutely correct. Its time for you to move forward with your case and with an attorney.
Don't listen to the other side's attorney that's for sure! They can make any kind of claims they want and you're just taking them to be true. She quit her job, sucks to be her. She doesn't get to quit her job, there's children to support and both of you have the same obligation to support those children.
That being said, the attorneys are right you have to,HAVE TO be proactive in this divorce. You can't just sit by and think things are just gonna take care of themselves. Otherwise, you're going to get screwed. Her attorney may be ethical, may not be, I can just tell you this… If you don't protect yourself nobody else is going to.
