I did not realize this was possible until recently. We spend fairly equal amounts of time with the kids and I think I have a similarly claim to custody. Is this some type of "emergency" action? I'm curious how long this takes, will I have time to hire an attorney to represent me, etc. I volunteered to meet with her attorney, she has not asked for anything as far as support, ED, and we have barely discussed custody. I've made proposals to her and she has never countered. She has documented mood swings, depression, and sleeping problems and has prescriptions from her sister nurse practicioner. Will court force mediation?
I would like some input to the strategy behind this move? We don't have a lot of assets and this push us close to where we may be bankrupt.
