Legal Answers
149 Questions Answered

Q. Can I dispute a custody jurisdiction change request if I still live in the state that has current jurisdiction?
A: The state where the child has lived for the last six months is the child's home state for jurisdiction.
Q. My ex and I have a parenting plan in place effective early 2018 (50/50 custody and decision making), she filed another
A: A motion for a change in majority time parenting can be filed every two years, although the initial order does not count towards the time limit. As far as a motion for restriction, more is needed than just the fact that he did not prevail.
Q. Motion to dismiss?
A: A motion to modify can be filed in a shortened period of time based on endangerment. It is not clear how the motion to restrict relates to the motion to modify. If sounds as if he may have lost the motion to restrict and is now filing the motion to modify as a second opportunity to allege endangerment. In theory, you could potentially move to dismiss if his motion to modify does not sufficiently allege endangerment, However, motions to dismiss are not common in domestic relations cases. You could accomplish the same thing in a response stating why endangerment has not been specifically set forth, and asking for dismissal as a remedy.
