What is the name of your state? My wife left me approx. 4 months ago from southern CA. She took my 14 year old daughter with her and are living in AZ with her parents. She did not notify my of the move prior to leaving or ask for permission to move out of state. There is also no court order authorizing the move. I understand in CA that is illegal. I also moved to AZ to be close to my daughter and live in the same town. I spent in excess of $4000 just in moving costs. Can this money and any additional expenses incurred in moving be claimed by me in divorce court to offset and monies owed to my wife for alimony or child support? Also can I also claim the moving expenses for my taxes?
