There may not be any activity in the case since the TRO was issued, but that fact does not make the case "inactive" for purposes of having the court review the TRO to determine whether there are sufficient legal grounds to set it aside. As such, you use the case number and exact same...Read more »

My daughter and I live in California, but can no longer afford it. I haven't been able to pay rent, and need a place to live now. My husband left over a year ago to New York, sending pennies for child support, telling me not to file for divorce so he could still get his citizenship. Now... Read more »
If he abandoned you to go live in New York over the past year, and has no relationship with your daughter while you and your daughter have bonded, there is not much chance that the court in California is going to give him custody of your child. The court that is located in the "home...Read more »
He has had her once over night in the last 9 months, no divorce has been filed and there is no custody agreement and he does not see her. He FaceTimes occasionally but not often. I want to move from California to Nevada but am unsure if I can do so.
You are not tied to California like a tetherball is tied to a pole. Does the father object? Does he want a divorce? have you tried working with the father to agree on a custody/visitation arrangement? Is there some reason you would not want to make custody/visitations arrangements before you...Read more »
Is anyone named as the father on the birth certificate? The fact that you are not named as the father on the birth certificate does not mean that you are not the biological father. I would suggest that you go to the county where the support order issued and have the court filed pulled and...Read more »

So you got the local police to act as pest control and remove the shrew from your house, good, that is probably the best thing you could do. Even though you give someone permission to be at your house, you can revoke that permission and they become a trespasser, if you have good cause, and it...Read more »
During this time I had a domestic violence RO against me I knew I couldn't buy or have any guns, my question is, now that my RO is over, will I be able to buy weapons or will it affect me still in any way?
No names were said. Truthfully, I am not sure I even made the posts. I believe someone related to the victim got ahold of my phone at a gathering, but that's hard to prove. Are posts about my son (on the RO) with pictures before the RO illegal? Is saying that the situation isn't right... Read more »
We were married over 25 years, support was court ordered for long term marriage.
