Wife left with Child
My wife moved to Florida to move in with some guys she met on World of Warcraft. She took our 5 month old son with her, she left me with $30 dollars and is expecting me to pick her up at the airport when she comes home to visit for her brothers graduation. I want a divorce. What actions can I take to get my son back at home with me, and to get final custody. I know Virginia favors the mother most often, but the house is in my name and I have a stable job - she has neither and will be expecting me to pay for her to live where ever she chooses. I'm getting a lawyer as soon as I can, but I need legal advice as to what I should be documenting, and what I can do NOW to get my son. Please Help!!

Re: Wife left with Child
You need a lawyer. If she deserted the marriage by moving to Florida and you are certain that you want a divorce, you may file a mensa thoro divorce complaint on the grounds of desertion/abandonment as well as a pendente lite motion seeking temporary custody of the child. Those can be done ASAP.
