Brother is divorced about 2 months now but has been taking care of his 3 children alone for about the past year. Joint custody was awarded, but ex-wife has basically abandoned the kids. Brother has been sole provider, no financial help from ex-wife. He lost his job, and apartment because he could not afford child-care or rent in Phoenix, Arizona. My brother had to leave the state and come to California to our parents' home for a roof over their heads. Even the ex-wife has not been in childrens' life she is making it difficult that he has left the state. Called police in Arizona and local police came to parent's home in California. They just checked on kids and left. What rights does he have, or what should he do now. He wants to stay in California to have help with kids from family members. Thank You.
