Thank you for your clarification, B.
It is unfortunate that she did not notify you before moving. Per Cal. Fam. Code Sec. 3204
, she has to notify you at least 45 days prior to relocation, wherein you may object to it. However, since it has now been 8 months since the relocation, that matter is now moot.well i need child support modififed to be lowered since i have 2 daughter with my wife. My allotment was messed up and didnt pay her last month and didnt even inform me till now when the 2 month is due unfortunatly I cant even afford the current order from california. Will I be ok with sending what the calculator from TX has on till we go back to court
Understood. Because (1) she has relocated from Texas to California and (2) because you are no longer in California either and are now in TN, then the jurisdiction for the matter falls to Texas
modify the child support as necessary, but this would have to be done in Texas, in the county where the children are living.
The pleadings necessary are:
1) Petition to Domesticate Foreign Judgment
(to have the Court accept the decree as local) and
2) Suit to Modify Parent Child Relationship
(the main petition that seeks to modify the child support).
The two may be filed back to back in one filing, and the domestication petition is quickly heard and accepted, to allow for the modification to commence.
A local Texas attorney is recommended. May I recommend the Texas Bar referral program - here
. The attorneys are vetted and qualified. You should be able to find an attorney you are confident with and whom you can trust, and who is available ASAP.
I hope this helps and clarifies. Finally, thank you for your service.
