In 2008 a divorce was granted in CA. It also shows I am the primary custodian of my child. My question is because they do not say anything about what happens to the child when it becomes 18 years of age. My belief is that when the child reaches 18 and has completed school I will be able to move out of the state as there will no longer be any valid visitation requirements to follow. So my plans are to leave the state the day after the child graduates from school as she will have reached her 18th birthday 2 months prior to graduation. Is my thinking correct?

I had custodial privilege over my daughter. The attorney for my soon to be ex-wife (but currently married ) had her attorney file an ex parte restraining order where I was not present. How can I overturn this and or not wait the three weeks where they are detaining my daughter from me. Her side is trying everything to screw with my relationship with my daughter which I have currently custodial privilege. I'm shocked by this but the judge granted it while I was undergoing surgery and not present. I had an attorney representing me but she said the judge never took the bench. Please help

Attn: Lucy, Esq – $92K Income? In her required financial

Attn: Lucy, Esq – $92K Income?In her required financial disclosure, my soon-to-be-ex-wife reported monthly income of $3,731. This consisted of Social Security, required minimum distributions (RMD) from her IRAs, and dividends (but not capital gains distributions) from stocks and mutual funds.However, the monthly statements from her investment brokerage show another $92,490 (equivalent to $9,249/mo) of stock and mutual funds sold and transferred to her checking account through October 2016. Her checking account balance then stood at $1,888, with $36,400 withdrawn in October alone.I realize that selling an investment and spending the proceeds isn't “income” in the sense that it is regular or continuous, like Social Security. But, it did provide spendable cash flow.So, would a judge likely categorize this additional $9,249/mo as “income” or just consider it part of the asset that no longer exists?Thank you for the consistently excellent information that you provide.
