Re: When the Primary Parent Dies, Who Gets Custody
The custody order was done in CA. Has venue ever been changed to Louisiana??? Probably not, because you're still in CA.
Here's what you need to do before you go get your son (which you need to do). Go into court on an exparte motion which requests that the court grant you sole custody of your son on the basis of your ex dying. Once the order is signed.... go get your son, with the police if necessary.
Sorry for the loss.
If you wanted babies all to yourself, you should have created them by yourself. Until you do that, children have the right to BOTH parents, especially since you found them suitable to procreate with.
