Ok. There is a lot going on right now. Im currently at the very start of getting full custody of my daughter with permission to leave the state to idaho. My husband is abusive physically, mentally, emotionally . He is currently in rehab for failing a drug programin court. He is able to leave whenever he wants even if he has not completed the time he was supposed to stay. There is currently a court order for custody of our daughter which is 50/50 and that i can not leave the county with out his permission. Today i got paperwork and talked to an attorney who i want to hire about helping me so i can get full custody and be able to move to idaho. My husband had no idea that im doing any of this. Although i think he is getting suspicious because how I've been acting whenever on the phone or around him. His mother lives in our house and i think she knows i want to leave him because she will try to justify his abuse by saying we ask have things we need to work on. Tonight she was on the phone with him and i over heard s few things that sounded like he wanted to file for divorce or do something that could make it so i can't leave our have custody. His mom has no drivers license and always has me drive her everywhere she needs to go. After hanging up with him she tells me that she is going to need to take the vehicle in the morning because there are some things she has to take care of. Its been bothering me to the point of an anxiety attack. My gut is telling me to pack all that i need for my daughter and me, get in the car and go to my mom's and maybe try contacting a dv shelter and see if i could get in asap because if i leave i think my husband will leave rehab and come after me. My mom's is the only place i have to go here in ca so he would go there of course, being in a shelter i would be safe from him. I worry if i don't go then his mom is going to do something that will ruin my life and my daughters life because leaving california is the best thing for the both of us. I don't know what to do

Our son went off to college last year and no longer lives

Our son went off to college last year and no longer lives with the other parent much at all. Thus far, I have continued to pay the same child support that I have been paying. He is now over 19 years old. Do I need to keep paying support for him? Do I need to pay anything for college? My ex has not brought up any costs but I am also aware that he got a nice scholarship. Lastly, he is choosing not to spend time with me anymore.Would I be expected to pay some for college - if so, what %? Would I need to walk through having him emancipated for me to avoid paying for college and to no longer pay support for him since he very rarely spends any overnights with my ex? Thanks!
