In October, the judge had us meet with a mediator where we agreed upon a settlement amount and payment plan. Also apart of the agreement was that when he made his final payment to me that...

DCSS normally doesn't send emails out of the blue, so you should contact them in person to determine the validity of the email. Normally, if they think you owe money, they send a letter explaining the basis of the claim. I would not respond to the email in case it is some type of scam and contact...Read more »
She is only in contempt of court if she does not follow a court order; not a suggestion from the supervisor. Unless the order specifically allows for that. If it doesn't than she is not. If you want to change the custody/visitation orders than you should file an FL-300 that requests exactly how...Read more »

Shouldn't have done that. At this point you just need to see if he brings it up and hope he doesn't. But if he does you need to get representation right away, and not discuss this matter with anyone else until you do, because the ramifications of this can be far reaching.
He served me himself via certified mail and did not include the notice of acknowledgement. I believe this is not a legal service because he sent the paperwork and he is a party in the case. He later sent the notice of acknowledgement but was blank. Nothing was filled in. I inquired about it and... Read more »

We are still married but separated for over 18 months. I want to move out of state. Am I able to move without giving notice to him or the courts being that I have sole physical custody? My son and I live in California where the courts granted me sole physical custody and joint legal custody.

You have left too many questions unanswered to determine that. Such as length of marriage, how long separated, when separated etc. However, is you would get a spousal support award based on the difference in incomes it would probably be a minimal award.
I'm assuming the other parents wants the child to live with them.
