Ask Your Own Family Law Question

First, you will need to obtain a court order that says she must submit to a DNA test by XYZ date and have that order served on her at her last known address. If she then fails to show up, then you ask that a show cause order be issued as to why she should not be held in contempt of court. There is no time limit for you to file this and you can file it right away as soon as she misses the DNA test date. If she fails to show for this court hearing too, then the just will likely issue a warrant for her arrest.

I'm being accused for a terrorist threat against my daughters Mother, who concealed the birth of my daughter and ascribed my daughter to a football player for he's money. Upon discovering what she did, I have vigorously tried to get a DNA Test, even served her with Paternity Test Request. She disconnected her phone and changed address to run away from taking the test. My Lawyer at present , is Not Pushing for Contempt of Court because she is also a Lawyer. I Will like to Relocate my case, due to the biasedness of the case. I Will like to relocate the case to Los Angeles, due to my current Not doing what he is meant to do , to avoid her getting another restraining order against me, while she is refusing to take a DNA Test, to establish my daughter as my daughter. She has collected millions of daughter of the footballers estate, but refusing me, the biological father of her child. How and what do I do to relocate the case to Los Angeles ?
