I have a question concerning child custody and relocation.
I have a question concerning child custody and relocation. here is the background:My daughters Husband has been abusive. She has been attempting to have him served with a protective order. He has dodged the order from sheriff attempt to deliver over 13 times.They were residing in Texas for 6 weeks prior to Living in LA for 2.5 years, where their 18 month old girl was born.After a verbally violent occurrence and threats of killing ( brandishing a gun) he left their residence in a mutual agreement of not to return until it was appropriate. my daughter and her mother ( who was also threatened) filed police reports.Her husband filed a restraining order not allowing my daughter to leave Texas with her daughter.My daughters attorney motioned to dismiss based on Texas not Having legal Jurisdiction. The Judge ruled LA to be the home state and dismissal pending on a status conference with the LA judge.My daughter, per advice of legal counsel relocated filed a divorce petition and Protective order in LA, and relocated to LA.In the meantime, Her husband retained a LA lawyer stating she had defrauded the court in some way when she filed the divorce and protective order in LA. Claims she filed prior to moving to LA and false pretenses. They also petitioned Texas to have legal Jurisdiction because they had established a permanent residence in Texas.The fact however was Texas was temporary ...the move was intended to be up to 6 months while my daughter gathered work education and experience as an NICU nurse to qualify her for employment and sake of her daughters to grow up in CT where her all family is located.Her Husband does not have a job in Texas. His only connection is a sister who lives there. My daughter's connection is she has relatives 3 hours away.My daughter has 2.5 years work history in LA, friends, doctors etc..and it LA is her 18 month daughter him stateBecause of this, the Status hearing was continued until August 31.My question is. On what grounds can LA judge could legally decline Jurisdiction under these circumstances?
My ex-fiancé and father of my 5 yr old son keeps harassing
My ex-fiancé and father of my 5 yr old son keeps harassing me with verbally abusive calls and lengthy texts. We have no formal custody agreement but our son has been living with me since we separated he was 2 yrs old. Over the past 3 yrs I have had physical custody of our child and he has never provided ANY financial support or child care. About a year ago his dad decided to move up to LA (which is about an hour north of us). A few weeks ago he started demanding that our son stay up in LA with him every other weekend. I will not allow this to happen because I do not believe our child would be safe. He has no car and his drivers license is suspended because he got his 3rd DUI a couple of years ago. He lives in an incredibly dangerous neighborhood and rents a couple of rooms in a large house, where he has been robbed on at least two occasions. He is unemployed and has no real friends, family nor support system nearby.I am wondering what my legal options are in response to this situation and what kind of actions I can take to protect my child and put a stop to the incessant harassment and verbal abuse. He has never been convicted of domestic violence, but he has been physically abusive to me in the past. Police have come to the house on numerous occasions and I am now requesting copies of these reports.I put in a call to a reputable child custody attorney the other day and I'm waiting to hear back from him now. But in the meantime, I would greatly appreciate any legal advice or insight you can provide on this matter.Thank you for your time and expertise.JA: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: CAJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: Not yetJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: The father occasionally takes the train down to Orange County to spend time with his son. When he comes down he usually stays with a friend for a day or two. He is incredibly inconsistent with his visits, but on average he probably sees his son once every 2-3 weeks.

I am going through a divorce right now. We are first going
I am going through a divorce right now. We are first going to file in court. My husband is a high-functioning alcoholic and can be verbally abusive and very controlling. I have a 14 and 15 and a half year old. They want to remain with me full time. At one point because I was going to agree to less than the minimum money he was going to let me be the primary parent and have them every other weekend and 3 weeks vacation. However there has been a lot of conflicts in the house and now he wants to either have my son full time and my daughter with me or have both of them half the time. I don't have a lot of evidence other than the testimonies of my children and family about his behavior and drinking. Nothing is on the record. And because I have tried to protect my children over the last few years from his explosions and controlling nature. He is trying to make the argument that I am alienating him. I am being told that no judge is frequently get shared custody. Spell initially my lawyer told me he thought it was unlikely that he would get this he is now I'm not sure. My main question is how long can I drag this out so there is a final judgment. At a minimum if I could at least be here in the home with them for another year it may go easier on my phone when he eventually has to go with him. The other question is when my son turns 18 can he move in with me. Even though that doesn't have documents might say otherwise isn't it his right when he turns 18 and to therefore he wants?
