yes there is a decree on demand or default hearing scheduled for thursday june 4th at 8:45 am - but now there is also an emergency hearing scheduled for wed june 3rd at 3 pm
I believe she filed for the emergency hearing.
she still has our children i have not had any contact with her or them - the police officer i took court forms over with said it appears she has not even been home for days - i do not know where her or our children are at all
yes i believe the emergency hearing is for custody - but when i call the court they would not tell me for sure
i am not even sure if i am supposed to go to this hearing or not i have never received any paperwork or court orders or supeonas etc - i only know about it because it is on my case history at superior court website
ok so i understand ... she does not have to bring our children back home? she can just leave the state with them or keep them at her apt?
even though i already have been punished for the dv (intent to cause fear - misdemeaner 2) and have 18 mnths probation - i am still on trial for it? and my children are getting punished for it also?
i need to present the children best interest is being with me? is that strictly financial? or does parenting time, childrens possesions, school district, local friends etc have a bearing on it?
i also need to present that no more dv will ever occur - i have no idea what proof can be made? other than im extremely sorry i scared her and that we hurt each other and said stupid things - i dont expect forgiveness but its something that never happened before and i know in my heart i will never allow myself to be in a situation like that again with her or anyone - my children have never been in danger from me or her (as far as i know)
