My daughter has 2 children, approx.
Hi - My daughter has 2 children, approx. ages 3 and 1, with her husband. She was married and remains a resident of Kauai, HI. She resided in CA until meeting husband and moving to HI to marry him. Her story is that he came home 3 weeks ago and said he wanted a divorce. No counseling, no separation, just out; too much stress. He said she could have kids and "re-locate" to CA. He is changing his mind on her leaving on a daily basis. She is seeing a lawyer in HI today. He cannot afford one and has printed docs from internet for uncontested divorce. We want to know if there are more liberal laws for mother in CA regarding custody. She cannot afford to stay on Kauai as no good jobs. She is has a BS degree but has been at home. He is raised in Kauai, AA degree but works as a cook/caterer. I may need phone consult with lawyer licensed in CA. Diana *************

However, I also was there to apply for the minor child's US Passport which requires both parents.
