My husband and I have been talking about divorce a lot lately. He says that he does not want to pay child support for our 2 year old son unless he has sole custody, I told him that I would not go after him for child support as long as I could have custody or even shared custody. He says that that is not possible because the gov’t will go after him whether I want them to or not. I disagree and think it is between the two parties and if one party wants child support then they open a case. What does the actual law state? We’re in California.
Also, I am a US Citizen, he is a citizen of another country and threatens to take our son to this other country. I am scared because right now I am a some part-time wahm and take care of our son and the home and have no money. He has a good job and also multi-millionaire parents to back him. Would it be possible for him to take my son overseas? What are my rights? Are there any resources that are free for me to use to get more information because I need to know what my rights are in case any of these situations really do come to pass. Please help, I am scared and desparate.
