Q: 

Can a foster parent get custody of a child if the biological parents are not fit but the agency gives her back

A:  Immediately contact a lawyer. Ask them to have a judge remove the child and place her into the foster care system until the parents can be evaluated. Even if the foster home isn''t yours, she will still be safe during the process. Ok lets get this straight...Just because a parent is "slow" doesn''t mean they can''t care for their own child and if the parents are getting custody back there is no way they can be on drugs (at least not too recently) because they have to comply with random drug tests and will have to comply for at least the next six months. If the agency found them fit there is nothing you can do, you have no rights to this child! Even if you...

Q: 

Foster Parents Have Legal custody of my child, Am I Allowed to Visit Her?

A:  “I signed over legal custody to foster parents of my daughter but retained my biological rights, can they decide to not let me talk to my daughter or visit with her or can she decide this? The legal guardians of my biological child filed a complaint with the police department claiming I am harassing them and my daughter. The police department filed a complaint with the district attorney’s office. I was never warned to stop contact plus my biological rights were not stripped,they also cut off their phone so I can’t have contact. How can this be considered harassment when I still have rights to my daughter?” This is a complicated question, and there is not enough information here for us to really guide you, other than...

Now that I Have custody of my child, How do I Terminate my child Support Order?

A:  “In NY, with a NYC child support order, how do I get the child support terminated when my daughter lives with me now, the non-custodial parent?” You will need to go back to the court that issued the child support order, and request a modification of your child support based on a change of circumstance (namely, in this case, that your daughter now lives with you)....

Q: 

How to Regain custody of a child After Giving Temporary Guardianship to the Biological Father

A:  “About seven years ago my fiance was being evicted from her home. With her daughter’s best interests in mind she signed over temporary guardianship to the child’s father with the understanding that the child would be returned to her once she got back on her feet. When she attempted to retrieve her daughter the father refused to give her back. She attempted to take him to court. A man claiming to be the fathers attorney contacted her and told her that guardianship can only be terminated by the guardian, and that if she pursued this matter any further the father would refuse to let her see her daughter anymore. Frightened by the call she let the matter drop fearing she would lose her daughter if she didn’t. Now her...

Q: 

child custody Rights and child Support Payments for Older Sibling

A:  “I currently live in the state of Florida, and my mother and 16-year-old brother live in California. My mother told my brother that he needs to find a place to live because she doesn’t want him anymore. He called me and wants to come live with me. His father, who lives in Pennsylvania, pays child support for him every month. I would love to have him, and with his child support I would have more than enough money to support him. Can you please tell me what the procedure would be to get my brother to me? Would I be in trouble for kidnapping if I paid for a car to the airport and a plane ticket for him to come here now without taking any legal action? Would we have to go to court in California for his

Q: 

My Husband Gained custody of His child After Her Mother Died, Why Does He Still Owe child Support?

A:  “My husband has a 10 year old daughter from a previous relationship (never married though). He has always been involved in her life and has paid court ordered child support in the state of Texas from the time that she was a baby until April 2006 when her mother, the custodial parent, passed away. His daughter had always lived with her mother, and her parents, and the household received government assistance as well as child support. Upon the death of the custodial parent, my husband’s daughter came to live with him (prior to our marriage) and he called the Texas Attorney General to begin proceedings in order to cease child support. We are now in September 2006 and we are still getting letters saying he...

Q: 

Do I have custody of my child?

A:  I''m not sure about your state, but in mine, if there is not a custody order, both parents have the same rights. My advice would be to go to court and have custody and visitation established. Even though you are still with this man, I think that would be the smart thing to do. I''m about to do the same thing. I find it very disturbing that in the same sentence that you state you are still in a relationship with this man you also state that he is threatening to take your child and take legal action against you -- sounds like time to seriously re-evaluate your relationship. First, though, it is time for you to file a petition for full legal custody of your child ---...

Q: 

Can some1 awarded custody release full custody to their child the bio-father of the custody child?

A:  She can waive her parental rights to the child. i am confused. why do you need to have a case if she already agreed to waive her rights? if this is true then it is just a matter of the mother making it official that she is giving her parental rights away. but just in case it is the father that wants full custody then he will have to prove to the court why he must be awarded that. it is not always that a court takes away parental rights. there has to be a felony committed or the well being of a child endangered in some way. apart from that your boy friend is likely to have physical custody and the mom may be just visitation and both of them with joined legal custody....
