I have been divorced for 10 years. We have joint legal custody, but I have primary physical custody. Our visitation schedule is "as both parties mutually agree". He makes no attempt to contact or see our children. He has gone as long as 5 years at a time with no contact. At this point it has been a year since he has seen or spoken to them. He is over $50,000 behind in child support. I have been offered a great fellowship for a doctoral program in Indiana and would like to move there with our children. After several attempts to contact him with no success I filed the appropriate court paperwork for a hearing request and have been granted a hearing where I have been instructed to submit a list of witnesses and evidence to the referee and have no idea what I need or should have. Please help.
