I had a domestic partnership in California in 2003. My now ex-partner and I both live in Washington and share custody of our daughter. I'm in a new relationship, and would like to dissolve the domestic partnership. However, I'm afraid that once I make a move legally, the ex might try to take our daughter back to CA.

Two questions...
1. How can I prevent her from up and leaving with our kid?
2. What is the process to dissolve a DP? It appears that I essentially have to file for divorce in the state of CA (not in WA where we now are). Is that correct? Can anything be done from here?

Thanks in advance!
