I was married and had a daughter with my husband in California, he was physically abusive, I finally got to a point where I was frightened for my life so I moved out of state to New Mexico. He was living with his parents at the time, I felt I needed to leave my daughter with him because I was scared he would be able to track me down if I took her with me since he would have to know my address to be able to visit and speak with my daughter. I applied for a divorce in NM and had a default divorce due to him not responding. On the divorce I put for joint legal custody and made a parenting agreement that I would be able to have her for summer vacation. He is denying me visitation, so will the visitation plan uphold in CA if I got the divorce decree in NM and visitation plan made in NM?
