What is the name of your state? CA
What are the exact forms I need to modify child custody? Original order was done in CA but absent parent (who will be taking over custody) is in OH. Local workers at the courthouse are less than helpful (falls under legal advice, so they say). It will be filed in CA. Also, what kind of documents or papers do I need when I go to court so absent parent does not have to physically appear in court (it will cost alot of money to move child out to OH so we are trying to do this inexpensively)?
