My question involves a child custody case from the State of: Colorado
I live in Colorado and have shared custody of a 7 yr. old child. The father is mentally abusive, though trying to prove it and gain cooperation is something else. He has a DNR case and I have filed to move back to Iowa. I am pretty convinced the courts will deny me, even though I am not sure how much proof the courts need that he does NOT have the best interests of the child in mind. Can someone walk me through what happens if I go anyway? Will I not be able to register her in school? Does Iowa law take effect after six months, where people are actually sane? Will I go to prison even though I have filed every court paper and spent about a decade's worth of wages I don't have trying to do everything legally? I left him for being abusive in 2006 and have been in court ever since. Things keep getting worse for the child, emotionally and scholastically.
