are the children? How old is the daughter? What is your current visitation order?
My suggestion is to seriously consider asking for a change in the custody order. This would need to be brought by motion or OSC independent of the child support motion scheduled for 04/14, using forms FL-300 or FL-301, and FL-310.
Although there is no age at which children get to decide where they live, the court factors the wishes of a child into their decision. The older a child is, the greater weight their opinion has. A 16 year old almost always gets to decide where they want to live simply because they are almost adults and they could easily "run away" if they are ignored in these delicate situations. The fact that your contact is being restricted is the icing on the cake. I would definitely like your odds if you brought this back into court.
Let me know if I may be of further assistance. Thank you.
I plan to bring this back to court ASAP but I make less than $45K per year therefore hiring an attorney is somthing that I feel is very unlikely to happen. Thank you for your information. I plan to file the OSC asap before my support court date.
