My husband has wrong thinking when it comes to education and medical institutions. We are heading towards a divorce. I want to ask for the right level of custody that will both allow him to be involved as a father but prevent him from being able to make harmful decisions regarding our son.
You can draft your judgment to put limits on legal custody. For example, you can give yourself "tie-breaking" authority, and/or include language about reasonableness of decisions or of withholding or denying consent to education or medical care.

I have a court order from 2005 that states I may claim my daughter for tax purposes only as a non custodial parent. In 2015, I was back in court for changes on visitation and child support payments. Does the 2005 order of tax claiming still carry over onto the 2015 court orders? The topic of taxes... Read more »
Court orders remain in full force and effect until/unless they are modified. If the 2015 order did not modify the 2005 order with respect to the tax exemption, then that part of the 2005 order is still in effect. Without actually seeing the orders however, I cannot say this with absolute...Read more »

CSSD has a payback program so you can make payments on the arrears. You can also schedule a hearing for yourself on the issue of relief from getting your license suspended. I also recommend you seek a modification and for forgiveness of the debt incurred during the period your 12-year-old was...Read more »

Retain legal counsel. You need to make the right arguments, properly submit your evidence and properly cite the law in responding to the father's requests. A 50/50 schedule between two counties for a 10 month old is unlikely going to be seen by the judge as in the child's best interests.
If a couple gets married and buy a house together but one spouse puts more money down on the house for instance from the sale of a home they owned prior to the marriage, will that spouse be entitled to what they put down plus half of the gain in equity of the house during the marriage?
If the down payment can be traced to a separate property source, the spouse making that part of the down payment will be entitled to reimbursement of that down payment. That reimbursement credit will be taken off the top of the sale proceeds (or total equity) before the community's share is...Read more »

Sounds like your daughter lives in NYC and has lived there for the past 3 years. California does not have jurisdiction to make any custody orders. You will need to consult with a NY licensed attorney on this matter.
You can either hire an attorney to handle the matter for you or you can use the court's self-help resources. Which option you choose depends on whether minor children are involved, whether there is property to be divided, issues related to spousal/child support, etc....Read more »
There's not enough information here to provide an answer to your question. You need to call an attorney directly and provide that attorney with yours and your spouse's income information and with your parenting plan

Debt incurred during the marriage is considered community debt. Distribution of debt during a divorce has more to do with each party's respective ability to pay down that debt rather than about who incurred it during the marriage.

"Can" ?? There really isn't enough information here. You mention "documents". Are you referring to court orders? It's unlikely that his taking the computer away is ok or acceptable. Without knowing what is in your court orders, it's difficult to say what...Read more »
