This answer was rated:

my wife file a petition for dissolution of non-covenant marriage with minor children two weeks after file the petition she went to Idaho to live with her boyfriend a week after she come back because the relationship dint work out and now she file for a default in family court case involving minor children trying to get custody of our child now after we got a written custody agreement sign what can I do to keep custody of my child ?
I'm a family law attorney and I'd be happy to help. I need a bit of clarification before proceeding. If you have a signed "custody agreement", then why is she seeking a default? Thank you.

Did the child go with her to Idaho? If so, was this with your consent? Thank you.

no my kid staid with me in Arizona and docent want to live with her

I would suggest that you have an excellent chance of prevailing on the custody issue. I say this as her leaving to go to Idaho and leaving the child behind makes it look like the boyfriend was more important to her than the child. That being the case, my thought would be for you to focus on this issue. Simply make sure that the judge is aware that she left and that she left the child in your care during that time. As such, she clearly believes you to be a fit and proper parent for the child.

My apologies, but we are limited as to what we may provide on this site. Pursuant to the terms of service, we may not provide actual legal advice, this would come too close to creating an attorney/client relationship. Instead, we provide some general information and guidance. Additionally, the only proper way to provide a strategy would be through actual representation. It is only then that an attorney can get the thorough understanding of a case necessary to make strategy decisions.
