Legal Answers
Q. Is the judge likely to rule based on the CPS report?
A: You can file a Motion to Modify Custody and explain to the court why you kept your son and ask the court to change custody to you as dad is assaulting the child. However, you want to be sure the sexual assault has been substantiated or the court is unlikely to change custody without some other material change. If CPS, the police, and/or the medical professionals found sexual assault then it is unlikely Court will order the child back to dad or contempt. Normally withholding your child with a good reason will not get you contempt of court. The main sanction for contempt ( withholding with a good reason) would be make up time to the father if no sexual assault was found.
Q. Is there something I can do to get primary so the kids can stay together? Or no because daughter was sent here.
A: You should consult an Idaho attorney. From a Nevada attorneys' perspective and with the limited information above, you can file in court asking for primary custody if you have had primary custody ( even if it was voluntary given to you) as this can be seen as a substantial change assuming your primary custody has been more then the summer or your normal time.
Q. I want to buy husband out of house during divorce and he is fighting me.
A: If you can not agree on what happens to the house and you ask the court to decided then the court will normally allow the party who wants to retain the home time to refinance and pay the other party their share of the equity in the house.
