  • I would call everyday till someone does something about it. That order should still be in affect no matter if they found him or not. Now if he comes around and hurts you or something then theres not much they can do only bc he didnt know that there was an order out. Also the cops arent tying their hardest to find him. They probably think that its not important and they have other things to do. Thats where the system is wrong!! Good luck!

  • They have to be able to serve him for the order to be in effect. If you want to leave the state go to the same court and get their permission.

  • I would petition to have his rights dissolved.. go to the courts, set up a court date.. if he doesn't show.. then you'll win your case..and can move no questions asked. if he does show.. it will be a chance for the procesution to finally handle the original court orders.
    Either way, you will be able to legally move after that.

  • try www.womenslaw.org and link to KNOW THE LAWS and see if you can leave the state with your son without getting in trouble or try www.avvo.com (that is 2 v's and not a w) or call your local domestic violence shelter and ask them what to do.
