Q: Wife and I separated, she moved her and kids out to Cali before we established custody. We filed taxes married jointly
She had the money direct deposited into her account and is refusing to give me my half. She does have a PO against me but I am suppose to have supervised visits and talk to my twice a day and am not getting that.
A: The first question is whether you and your wife are legally separated or just don't live together? If it is a legal separation, then you have some legs to stand on, but if it is not filed then you may have some trouble. Because you used the terms supervised visitation, that gives me the sense that this was done legally. The child visitation and the money are two separate issues. With her being out of state it does make for a complex solution. You really need an attorney to help you through this. Make sure the attorney is comfortable with handling the complexities added by them being in California.
