Child Custody & Visitation
My sister & her husband, who resides in Washington, have a 4 yr old son. She has recently left him and moved home to California with their son. He was physically abusive to her and the last time to their son. There is no police documentation of these events. They are filing for divorce. Which state does this need to be done in? The father wants the son sent to WA for 30 days and then return to CA for 30 days until he is older and then 6 months back and forth. Is this fair? Does the mother have to agree with this? And if she doesn't agree, does she have to go to WA for court disputes? I appreciate any help.
