Was wondering if anyone has delt with Jurisdiction issues over which state will hear custody case. I am in CA, by ex who is wanting custody is in AL. Can a court make me return to a state & stay there if I want to be with my boy?

Do you now have your child with you, and how long have you lived in Ca.? If your ex moved to Al. and does not have the child, he will have to come to Ca. for custody battle. By the way Ca. is one of the worst states there is for giving custody to men. Very, very gender biased. Why does he want custody? Is he abusive or just want out of child support? Keep us posted.
slbennett will be responding to you, any way I would be very surprised if she don't. She is in southern California, would be wise of you to contact her.

My son is with me, I have a good attorney, I have not yet met the state requirements for divorce, but we( attorney & I) filed hoping to get jurisdiction & have the entire case heard here. My husband wants custody so he doesnt have to pay, as well as wants to be with our son. He works construction, and travels all over the US every few months. However, if he could have his boy with him everyday & everynight, he would go flip burgers at McDonalds. He has nothing over me to proove I am an unfit mother. And I have nothing over him. Hes a GREAT father, who wants to be with his 1 yr old son. But says the court in AL will hear the case, he even filed for divorce there, ontop of what I filed here. I did legal seperation & Custody. We both have attorneys in both states. He is so certain the case will be heard in AL in 2 weeks. the case is also to be heard in CA in 3 weeks. ITS A MESS, and I am really scared he could get custody, or make me have to move back to AL with our son.

Hi Caligirl,

I just came on to the website this evening. I have been keeping in close contact with Barbara
from Wisconsin and Wendy from North Carolina.
I am in Ontario (Southern CA), are you nearby?
My email is slbennett1025@yahoo.com. My ex and I were married and divorced here in California and had 2 children here and when we got divorced, I was forbidden to leave the 7 southern counties with the children. I had tried to go back to Oklahoma (my old roots) but evidently if the child is from California, they become property of the state, not people...property!!! I just hope you have a good attorney. They frown on a person that does not have legal representation. Keep in touch and keep us posted. WE (the mothers and women) are here for you. By the way, Barbara and Wendy are women full of knowledge. Good luck and GOD bless you. Take care.
