My question involves a child custody case from the State of: California
My ex-husband and I have joint legal and joint physical custody of our 7 y/o son. I have been the primary custodian, and he has visitation on alternate weekends. It went well for years until I requested that we split childcare costs. After seeing that the original CS order did not include childcare costs and that it was ordered years ago when my ex-husband was still unemployed and that he has been gainfully employed for many years now, the court granted the child support modification. Based on the CA child support guideline, the CS went from $300 to $800. Now, my ex-husband is furious and has filed a motion seeking full custody of our son. What can I do to keep the custody and visitation order as is? I want to share equal parental responsibility with him, as this is what's best for our child.
