LADYLAWYER : Hi again Cathy! Thanks for requesting me :)
LADYLAWYER : Yes, that sounds fine. I think she needs to tell the GAL that she cannot show an income right now as her employer pays her in cash. Better to tell the GAL than the judge and by the time she seeks custody again, the GAL will be different, I'm sure.
LADYLAWYER : The other thing your daughter could say is that this is tearing up her family with all the in-fighting over custody and she has decided it is best to just let things be right now for the sake of all parties involved. This way, she doesn't have to say anything about her job and if your mom still tries seeking custody, she looks like the selfish one.
LADYLAWYER : If the GAL filed the petition for her via a phone call and will withdraw her petition without your daughter having to file a notice, then that is great!
LADYLAWYER : You can always let Cara have Addie as much as you feel comfortable with, so she can essentially have that relationship with her daughter, even though she doesn't have legal custody.
LADYLAWYER : If you have any further questions, just let me know. Thanks!
Customer : Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX now she is in LA , and I plan on moving there also and taking Addie with, possibly by September. Is that going to be a problem with the courts as long as I have legal gaurdianship I don't see why.
LADYLAWYER : No, that will be fine. IL will have continuing jurisdiction for legal purposes so if Cara wants to try for custody later on, she will still need to file in IL.
LADYLAWYER : The only way there could be a problem is if your mom tries for custody and attempts to block or delay your move out to LA.
LADYLAWYER : I don't see her being successful, but it could delay things while the judge sorts it out.
Customer : Thank u so much again.
LADYLAWYER : Youre so welcome!
