Asked in Divorce, Family Law, Child Custody and Domestic Violence for California

Q: I am alienated parent and can I sue people and family who knowingly not disclosing where my kid is?

I filed divorce in Oregon and my soon to be ex skipped the state. Supposedly she moved back to CA according to her lawyer. She took our kid with her and I don't know where they are. I haven't been able to serve divorce paper. I have been searching on the internet, hired PI, I confronted her previous partner who supposedly provided temporally housing, I confronted with her son from other partner they all knew where my soon to be ex and kid is but not telling me. I haven't seen my kid for almost two years now.
