My problem is that his dad lives in 1 bed apartment. He has a wife and she has 3 kids. She has 2 girls(age 3 & 10) and 1... Read more »
The short answer is yes, a judge can make that order. However, you would need to present more than you have here to convince most judges to make that order. The child's health, safety, and/or welfare must be at risk. Arguable, so many people in such a small place could fit that criteria. But...Read more »
My ex is supposed to see my son every other weekend but will disappear for up to 8 months at a time and then out of no where he will call and tell me I need to meet him and give him my son (as it says in the court order) or he'll make a police report saying that i'm not complying with the...

I agree with Ms. Waxman, the court order is enforceable until it is modified. The Request for Order (FL-300) would need a legal reason stated for the request to modify. It is absolutely not in the best interest of your child's health, safety, and welfare for his father to come and go...Read more »

I also have a restraining order on her, she also was released from jail 3 days ago for DUI child endangerment. Cops said she was past out in the middle of a Residential neighborhood who it a gal of vodka half gone. I think I should get full custody
Custody is a tricky beast in California. The courts have a public policy to make order for a minor to maintain "frequent and constant contact with both parents." This can sometimes mean that even parents who you personally feel should not have their kids, will end up with custody. One...Read more »

If no criminal protective order was issued when the police came the first time, then you may need to take steps on your own to secure one. Merely calling the police for domestic violence does not automatically create a protection to you. The next step would be to go to your local court and apply...Read more »
