Is the other parent not allowing you to see your children?

If you have an existing California court order for child custody & visitation and it is specific, you can ask the police to enforce the order or you can file a Contempt order which would address the non-compliance of the other parent.  If your current order is not specific enough & therefore not enforceable, you may need to change the order by filing a Request for Order.

However, if you do not have existing court orders, you would file a Divorce, Paternity Action (if you have children & are not married) or a Legal Separation requesting the court to address child custody, visitation and support.  Since it takes months to get to the trial phase, you may want temporary orders so that custody & visitation can be addressed in a faster time frame.

You can get temporary orders by filing a Request for Order.  This can be filed when you have:

  1. filed for Divorce and want a temporary custody & visitation order while the Divorce is in progress
  2. filed a Paternity Action (when you have children & are not married) and want a custody & visitation order while the Paternity Action is in progress
  3. filed a Legal Separation and want a temporary custody & visitation order while the Legal Separation is in progress

It’s always a good idea to speak with one of our experienced Family Law Attorneys who can access your situation and make sure that an appropriate custody & visitation order can be filed.  Give Legal Action Workshop a call @ 1-800-HELP-444 (1-800-435-7444) for a confidential consultation with one of our Family Law Lawyers or visit our website @ www.LegalActionWorkshopLAW.com .
