Saratoga Child Custody Lawyer on Not Following a Temporary Custody Order
I am going through a messy custody battle and was just ordered to return to the state that I have no help or family in. I was forced by my public defender to agree to this even though I didn’t want to. I am getting barely any child support and don’t want to take the kids back to such a bad situation when we have everything we need here. What can I do?
It is not advisable to disobey a court order. Among other things, your disobedience could be held against you in the context of your pending custody proceeding. If you are not pleased with the advice/assistance of your assigned counsel, you should consider consulting with a private attorney. Perhaps the court is not apprised of all of the facts of your case. Or perhaps an attorney can file an emergency application on your behalf to allow you to live out of state, depending on the facts of your case. Be warned, however, that court permission to relocate is often very difficult to obtain over the objection of the other parent, even with very favorable facts on your side. More facts are needed for someone to evaluate your case, and so a consultation with an experienced Saratoga Child Custody Lawyer as soon as possible is probably your best course of action if you want to address the temporary order that you are displeased with.
