What shld I do...make an Ord to Shw Cause showing why the judge's dec. was incrrect, + ask that they be ordrd back to NY4 GOOD?

Q:My ex-wife, after our divorce was finalized, made an Order to Show Cause in a New York Supreme Court to relocate and was successful; as such, she and our child moved out of state.. There was a hearing, and I fought the alleged merits to the move. The judge issued an "Interim Decision After Hearing". The judge set forth several conditions that my ex has to comply with, e.g. , proof of employment, proof that she came back to NY to visit between now and our next court appearance (which will be in March 2018, proof of pediatrician's treatment of child, proof of family's support in new locale and proof of compliance w/ other matters . If she succeeds in convincing the judge that she has complied, then the move will be made permanent. I WANT THE JUDGE TO ORDER THEM TO RELOCATE BACK TO NY because the family reneged on the promised support, the child is not seeing a doctor for a somewhat serious condition and more. I believe that the move was not made in the child's best interest. There is also new evidence, which is relevant, and very well might have changed the outcome of the decision that I'd like to submit, that I couldn't have known at the hearing, because they just came to light. 

Can i fly internationally with my child if i get a temporary order of protection?

Q: I have been in a domestic violence relationship for 7 years and have a 6 year old child in common with the person. I finally decided to leave the relationship a month ago. I have told him to constantly leave me alone and he continues to bother me. He has threatened to show up anywhere i go, hurt me if i date someone else and also hurt the other person as well. Im thinking of getting an order of protection. However, my mom lives in the Caribbean and will have surgery in August. Will this stop my child and i from traveling internationally? 

What can I do, if I feel that my girlfriend's ex husband is telling lies about me in court, when this has nothing to do with me?

Q: Child custody case is happening between my girlfriend and her ex husband, who in fact is nothing to those kids. Anyways, he had called CPS and it was unfounded. In the CPS case it was mentioned that I smoke weed and offered it to one of the kids. Now I just read the paper his lawyer had written to the courts where he stated I am a current or former drug addict. I had taken a drug test for CPS cause there was nothing to hide, but now this is going to far that he is now telling lies in court and mentioning me with these statements and getting kids involved with these lies as well. What can I do or should I do?

I have a second hearing for a custody case. I refused a lawyer the first time. Will she ask me again if I want a lawyer?

Q: I need a court appointed lawyer for a custody case. I can't afford one. The judge asked me if I wanted one at the first hearing. I didn't think I needed one at the time, but then realized that I do for the next hearing.

I live in ny,my child(20 yrs old) lives on his own,how can I prove this?

Q: We went to court,I had proof but not good enough, the mother lied about my child moving out,I have asked my child for a notarized letter from his mom to stop it. They wouldnt give it because they want to keep the money. Now the child doesnt speak to me since I asked for a letter. How can i prove the child doesnt live with his mom? 

Does my Order of Protection (I was defendant) and So Ordered Divorce allow contact with my ex-wife?

Q: My daughter's school is holding an annual special education review meeting, which I'm invited to. Can I attend if my ex-wife is there? The order of protection states: "Contact regarding visitation permitted if permitted by other court order." The So Ordered divorce Stipulation of Settlement states: Both parties shall be entitled to attend all public events for the Child, including but not limited to ceremonies, plays, performances, concerts, graduations and games. The party who does not have parenting time shall be entitled to greet the Child and take photos with the Child at the event. Both parents can be present at parent-related events for the Child (e.g., school or religious). 

How can I go about reducing my child support amount?

Q: Me and my x wife agreed to the child support amount and in our agreement, but now I have unexpected expenses like I had to get a new car cause my 2006 car finally gave out, so I have car payments. We split all extracurricular activities and schooling 50/50, I feel I'm paying to much still with me paying have for our daughters extracurricular activities. Our divorce agreement was finalized in 2018. I'm financially struggling and dealing with a VERY unpleasant co parent to say the least.

Can I do anything about my ex's employer not submitting child support payments?

Q: I have a court order stating I am suppose to receive $300 weekly. He gets paid bi weekly and I they started sending me payments biweekly. Which I am ok with. But now payments are not coming in as frequent. I never know when I'm getting my child support money. The last 2 checks I received because I called child support and filed a complaint but it's going on 3 weeks and I still have no child support payments. I have asked my sons father if he can talk to his HR dept but he says they take the money out of his check and me not getting the money is not his problem. What can I do?
