Suppose for some reason, I lose this hearing. It’s a reality I have to accept, that I may lose this. Since he has left the state, will NC still retain jurisdiction after that, or would it be moved to the state in which he now resides?
And on that note . . . since HE left the state and HE made the decision to take my children, and HE has a sizable income, shouldn’t the costs of travel to see my child be his responsibility? I felt that this was grossly unfair at the temp hearing. Is there anything I can do about this? Request in writing? Some motion or something? HE makes well over $100K (which I found via his email), pays no rent (lives in property owned by his family), says that he has to spend almost a thousand a month on entertainment alone, and I have been pretty much left destitute after being a stay at home mother to his children. I’m currently not employed (I’m at this computer all day, sending out resumes, looking through ads, signing up for all kinds of stuff), but he gets paid just to be a member of his family. Why am I having to a pay to see a child HE chose to remove from her home state?
And how long would NC retain jurisdiction, in the future, if either of us wants to change anything?
