    Post No Answer Filed in Response to a Custody Petition

    My question involves a child custody case from the State of: Oregon

    I'm in Arkansas custodial parent

    Non custodial files petition for child support issue also visitation issue.
    I find out about the petition yet I hadn't been served legally, or at all
    I file my response and own petition, before my 30 days are up

    Mean while, two weeks custodial parent finds my address from me responding to his petition )) I get served the original petition of which non custodial filed
    ( a month prior )

    * I would have never know about the petition, glad my prior attorney gave me heads up..

    I filed before my 30 days were up, from date he filed in court

    Yet my petition/response I served on non custodial . custodial has not responded in the 30 days


    ((( I filed n responded before he located me to be served )))
    My x attorney who is retired seen my name come across his computer.
    He is off the record, but let me know there was a petition that needed my attention.

    So I filed default of petition order
    And order for default.


    Input on scenerio

    Thanks Demi

    Even if I could make sense out of what you've posted, which I can't, I cannot for the life of me see what Oregon law has to do with your situation even if you did ask a question, which you did not.

    What's your question? What does Oregon have to do with this?

    Um at the top of my post is says the situation occurred: OREGON My original judgment was in Oregon

    I left Oregon in 2012.
    11 years later I live in Arkansas, just saying..

    My question was; he petitioned w the court.
    He did not serve me until I had already responded to his petition.

    I know it's crazy, but I heard there was something filed at the court, so I looked and there was..

    My question;
    I responded, I also sent in a petition. Answering his questions.

    ( I'm trying to do this the best I can )

    Anyways.
    After I filed the response along w my petition, 30 days passes and he's not responded.

    Is he in default, I suppose that's my question

    (((( then after I filed my response and petition, he serves me w his original petition )))))

    He tryd to file thinking I'd never know, and win judgment.

    I hope that's clearer

    Thanks demi

    No you said the state Oregon and that you live in Arkansas - and why do you have two threads on the same thing?

    I put two posts thinking I could get others opinions. I've never used a forum. It's hard to navigate thru.
    This is all very stressful.

    Didn't mean to break any rules. I apologize.

    I'm autistic and have a hard time.

    I appriiciate your patience

    If you resolve the present motions in Oregon, you can consider filing a UCCJEA petition in Arkansas to try to transfer the case to that state; but if you file the UCCJEA petition now, the still-pending motions in Oregon are likely to prevent transfer. You should consult a lawyer in Arkansas about the possibility of moving the case, the timing of your petition, and what it will cost.

    My motion was denied.
    Apparently I did not file one of the correct forms . Proposal order

    I believe I can still respond to His petition ( which, I thought I was doing all along )
    Also I believe I can do a counter claim

    Thank you for answering.
    Single mom just wanting to resolve this

    Demi

    Need to know how to respond to his petition ( motion to show cause ) and what is a counter claim.
