  1. A summary dostolusiin requires parties to agree on the terms of the divorce. Summary dostolusiin is not an option for you, because this process cannot be used when there are are children of the marriage. If you agree on the terms of the divorce, one of you can file and if the other doesn’t respond it is uncontested. Preferably, you should both agree on the terms of the divorce and submit a judgment ending the marriage. You can move your child to different states without the courts permission while you are married. Hiding the child from your husband, without a court order to do so, is a crime. So, its good you have a letter from him authorizing you to move. It’s not required but it could be helpful if you ever have to show that you are not hiding your child from him. You also may want to document in a letter or email that you told him where you and the child are located. If you file for divorce, you need your husband’s written consent or a court order in order to move the child out of state. If you file for divorce in California, you will have to pay the filing fee. You can apply to the court for a fee waiver which may or may not be granted depending on your circumstances. You may then file pleadings with the court requesting among other things that your husband pay for or contribute to your anticipated legal (attorney) fees and costs. Again the extent to which this request is granted depends on you and your husband’s economic circumstances.
