Under certain limited circumstances you may be able to file a motion to change venue.

It isnt that its a large amount of money that I am not willing to pay. I have no problem supporting my child whenever I can - my issue is that I havent seen him or... Read more »
First, this question does not have anything to do with Immigration law or Child custody. It is a personal injury question. Next, contingent fee agreements of this type are not set by law. The amount you are charged will depend on a number of factors which could include, the probability of...Read more »

My ex filed the divorce petition in 2016. I didn't file a response because we were in agreement on most things. (One child, no property to split). The case went into default status and he has failed to continue the process (hasn't filed the remaining paperwork to finish and get judgment).... Read more »
You can file a motion to set aside the default. If granted, you would then file your response to the petition and move your case forward as usual. The other option is to enter into a settlement agreement with the other party and file that as a stipulated judgment.
These are the kinds of questions and the kind of advice you should seek directly from an attorney rather than using this type of forum to get your answers. You would be best served by retaining legal counsel to handle your divorce case for you and/or on your behalf. You’ll get better and more...Read more »
My husband and I are still married, live together in Southern California, and never had any custody hearings. He doesn’t want our daughter to go. His reasoning is because of COVID-19 but we just went to visited his parents in Northern California. So I don’t see the difference.
No. If you are parents married with no court orders limiting where when and who the child can be with, either parent can travel freely subject to not putting the child’s health safety and welfare in jeopardy. In this case that would following protocols for travel. Covid-19 has been addressed by...Read more »

Your question is not clear. What's the context? Rights regarding what? Grandparents can petition the court for visitation rights -- if that's what you are asking. Whether that petition is granted depends on the circumstances of your particular situation.
Full custody . Because those paperwork’s were never served to me what can I do . She has kept my daughter from me lied saying I never reached out or bothered showing up on my pick up dates . What can I do to get my visitation back ?
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 »
