I received an order from the New Jersey family court on July

I received an order from the New Jersey family court on July 22nd stating that the Court would interview the child on August 18th. I am the Defendant father and was not notified of the initial hearing on July 15th. The child is a 12 year old girl who was internationally abducted by the Plaintiff in 2007 for a period of three years. The child was never returned voluntarily and chose to live with the Defendant and that is how she returned to the USA. The child has already suffered trauma due to events of the past. I am very concerned about the effect the interview this will have on the child. I don't think the child is aware of it. She broke down in tears when made to appear in D.C. Court last year and on prior occasions as well. My question: is the Court order legal? Can the Judge order the child to be interviewed in such haste without hearing from the Defendant? How can I stop this? I have an emergency motion prepared explaining all this and am ready to file it today. Is that the best course of action? Thank you.

I am permanant citizen since a year and I am born Canadian.

Hi, I am permanant citizen since a year and I am born Canadian. My husband had history of being emotionally abusive and violent when he gets mad. Today he had a tantrum cussed and yelled and me and broke my phone and threw it across the room where my 1 year old and I were standing. He didn't wanted to hurt us... but could've have had. It is not the first time it is happening and so... I called 911, the cops came and arrested him. I will not be in contact with him until he goes to court.I want to know, if I can pack my things, go back to Canada with my baby where I will have a big support system and fill for divorce there? What would be the steps I need to take to get there without being in trouble with international laws and such?Thanks for helpingMarie

Can a father legally take s children out of state on

Can a father legally take his children out of state on vacation if he and the mother are newly separated and awaiting their divorce? The father has filed paperwork with the court system for custody two months ago, but he has not been assigned a court date or heard anything back from the court system since. The vacation was pre-planned before the separation and is not a permanent move. Would he possibly be in trouble for kidnapping and/or child abduction?
