Q: 

My Fiance custody of child

A:  Hello Andrew, From your question, I get opinion that you need the woman get custody of the child to apply for the Australian prospective marriage visa. If the woman don"t have custody of the child, she can"t take the child with you to Australia, and you can"t sponsor them with a marriage in the same time. I think it"s very hard to divide the child from his mothert. So your question is concerned to your marriage at last. And you indicated that ex-husband is a Taiwanese. He had left the child for 7 years although he has custody. And the child was raised by the...

Q: 

child custody

A:  Dear Mr. Shahbaz, Walekumsalaam, your right in accordance to the Guardian and Wards Act is that you may claim the custody of your child on attaining the age of 7 and upwards and this also prove that the welfare of the child is in detriment and the mother is unable to look after the welfare of the child. But in any event you still have the right to see and spend time with your child, if you so desire. Section 8 of the Guardian and Wards Act, 1890 entitles you to make an application under section 10 of the Act and on inquiry the court may pass appropriate orders in the matter concerning the guardianship of the minor. A good lawyer on...

Q: 

custody of child In-case of Divorce

A:  Hello OS, Since your marriage is registered with the Indian Consulate and you both are presently in Dubai, for all purposes the law relating to child custody in Dubai will apply. I understand that you have not traveled to India anytime after your marriage and the child is also born in Dubai. Your child can have the Philippines nationality as well and that will be an advantage in any event that you may face a problem with the child custody. For any reason if your husband claims the custody of child under Indian law, he has to file it in...

Q: 

custody

A:  Dear Teena, If your ex-husband is a litigant then I cannot predict what action he would take upon you taking your son to US.  As for the fear whether your ex=husband would take any action against your parents, in my opinion there is no contractual liability between your parents and your ex-husband.  The custody of the child and his welfare is given to you and in the best interest of the Minor the decision taken by you is binding on your ex-husband.  Now that the minor is moved from the local jurisdiction, your ex-husband may not have any cause against your parents as they are bound by your decision to take your son. As for the decisions taken for the welfare of the child is concerned you have...

Q: 

Transfer of custody issue

A:  You say that "no one seems to want to help you." Who exactly is refusing to help you and what is it that you want them to do that they''re not doing? This woman is guilty of kidnapping. Granted the authorities might not see it that way since she is the biological mother and might not want to get involved and bring any charges against her. I''d hire a good family law attorney and begin by filing a motion to have a warrant issued for her arrest. Then I''d ask for the visitation order to be modified so that she''d have supervised visitation only. The rest would be reactive on your part, depending on whether or not she tries to get custody, etc. You need to take your court order, stating that you have full

Q: 

can non-biological father get joint custody ever?

A:  tough call, first even if he had legal joint custody, if the mother takes off to another county like Mexcio, there is nothing he can do, since US courts has little effect there, heck if she just denied the court order and left to another state, not always will things happen. So really there is not always a way to enforce something if the other person is willing to go out of thier way to avoid it. as for as the issue, time for an attorney, it can follow though what state child born in, and how long they lived there., current state, how long they lived there and alot more. Some states after the child is born to a married couple, after a amount of time, no one can challenge his rights as a father, in other states...

Q: 

custody battles when only living parent is a released convict

A:  I''m not sure about the obstacles presented by the legal system regarding a formerly-incarcerated parent regaining custody, but the child will generally have a guardian ad litem appointed by the court to represent their interests (which often can be at sharp variance with that of their biological parents, substitute caretakers or child welfare caseworkers). One large factor in how big an uphill battle it will be for the hypothetical father is going to depend on whether his parental rights have been terminated (that''s known as a TPR - Termination of Parental Rights), which is usually a precursor to a child being adopted or emancipated. If neither of those two (adoption or emancipation) were...

Q: 

custody Rights in Oregon

A:  I can only speak from my experience with custody situations in Philadelphia, I don''t know anything about Oregon but maybe your friend can find this helpful. First, in custody askme threads there are usually about 10 responses from people telling the asker to go to "legal aid" for representation. This is generally poor advice offered by people with little to no experience with free legal services. Everyone has custody issues. Everyone takes them to legal assistance offices. These offices, at least in Pennsylvania, do not EVER handle a custody situation. If they handled custody, all they would ever do is handle custody. Then they...

Q: 

How might my son''s grandfather have been awarded partial custody without notice to me?

A:  Some courts will grant emergency custody without notice to the other parent and without that parent present (''ex parte''). Courts will usually only do this in extreme situations. The person requesting custody will need to prove to the judge that the child is in danger in order to get an emergency custody order like this. ''Ex parte'' orders generally are only for a short period of time. I am unable to determine why the order was granted, it will depend on all the facts and circumstances involved, such as whether there were allegations of harm to the child, whether the grandparent was providing support to a child born to minor parents,...

Chances are that you''ll get Joint custody. u have complained about her lifestyle but that duznt make her a bad mom just a bad role model How is it that your statement only shows her negative points and not yours!
