Q: 

Is there a right to know about other parent's significant other?

A:  PA child custody "laws" are for the most part based on "case law" rather than statute.

Q: 

Living together with child--Q

A:  You are referring to old laws that considered unmarried relations to be "meretricious." Mostly those laws have been reversed and are no longer in effect.

Q: 

Stipulation in CA but mom lives in AZ

A:  CA has jurisdiction over the issue of determining custody and child support of that's what you mean by "new case". In order to avoid AZ public assistance arm coming after me for reimbursement, I'd make sure to report to them separately what support you are paying in the event she lies on her application about child support. It may be that she doesn't qualify for this assistance. Consult with a local attorney if necessary. Is child support being paid through the department of child support services or directly to the CP? Where does the NCP live? AFDC is no

Courts frown upon giving custody to a parent that is going to move out of state. You can either duke it out in court OR try mediation to see if you and your wife can agree on possibly joint custody. You must live in AZ for 6 months before you file for divorce for AZ...

Q: 

child custody in california

A:  Laymans take: I'd get counsel if I were you--silently! If Mom doesn't have a custody order then what is to prevent you from just picking up your child? I fail to see where "grandfather " has standing. If nothing prevents you grabbing control---so be it. But triple check options with counsel--silently and swiftly! You will have to bring the matter to the court in the county where the child resides or the county where the child support case was initiated if that is a different county.  You can't just pick a random court that's closer to you in a county where no one is a resident....Get a lawyer. ...
