Customer Question
Hello, I am being...

Hello, I am being evicted and can no longer stay in California. I have a daughter with my ex husband have no clue if anyone has custody as we never went to mediation. I asked him if she could come out to see me over summer and holidays and he said no.

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?

Not yet. I wasn’t sure where to start

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

No? Maybe? Lawyers make me nervous

I need to know how to go about checking to see if I have an open case or if I need to open one. I need to know which courthouse I need to go to to file. I need to know if I can file and request a move away straight off the bat or if that is something that needs to be processed separately and I need to know how quickly I can get any of this done because I have to move somewhere in 30 Days.

I have three children total. The other two are coming with me. They have all lived with me full time since they were born and I take them to and pick them up from school. I can not afford to live in California anymore, so I have to go home to Ohio to live with my family.
