Ok, here is my story

When my daughter’s mom told me that she was pregnant, I quit my job..sold my share of a townhouse that I co-owned, left my family and friends and moved 3000 to the SF Bay Area to be there for her. For the past 2 years, I have solely supported not only my daughter..but also her mom..and another child her mom had through a previous relationship. Now the mother is in prison serving 15 month on a felony conviction. Her lack of financial support has put the load on my shoulders in one of the most expensive areas in the country and has left me in debt.

My employer has offered to relocate me to a position in a more affordable area close to the support of my family…but to block this, my daughter’s mom filed a petition for child support against me and have a restraining order stating that I can not take my child out of the state. I have to respond to this petition soon and do not have the cash for a lawyer.

I have records to prove that I provide housing,food,clothing, dental,vision,and medical…but this process is new to me and I need to know what more should I have ready to present the court. Please share any imfo you may have in this area. Thanks…
