Q: 

Do you think if a natural or first mother doesn't want her child and the father does.?

A:  No Sam, the mother is not responsible to pay child support. The father is whether he wants to keep the child or not. Of course the mother can spend on the child out of her free will but it is not an obligation. Not if the father is like, rich or whatever. my parents divorced when i was 11,i stayed w/ my dad ,and since he had enough money and my mother didnt she didnt have to pay him anything for me..i dont think she would if she had to tho. but if she can pay it and he doesnt have alot of money, ya. It does not matter who the custodian is the parents are responsible for child support until the child has been legally...

Q: 

Can you adopt a child without the fathers permission?

A:  I do believe that the second man COULD adopt the child without the father''s permission. Since he is not on the birth certificate, it is basically the same as saying the mother does not know who the father is. But, if the father found out about it, he could just petition the court to get the adoption overturned and all it would take is one DNA test to prove that he has rights. She would really set the stage for problems if he found out his daughter had been adopted without his permission. If she knows who he is, she needs to get his permission, in my opinion. It sounds like the father actually does want a relationship at some point, just wants to make sure the...

Q: 

My husband has a child from a previous relationship. He has sole custody of the child. Could we have a will that states if something happens to him the child would remain with me? The mother didn''t show up and contest the custody and has no permanent address or living arrangements. She also has another daughter that she doesn''t have custody of either.

A:  The short answer: No, not unless there has been a termination of the mother''s parental rights, or the mother either agrees or does not contest your custody. So long as the child''s biological mother retains parental rights, she has standing to move for custody. Even though your husband has sole custody, if he did not move for an involuntary termination of the mother''s parental rights, then she still has rights over yours. You certainly have an argument to make that you have been the child''s de facto custodian, as the child''s stepmother. However, that would really only give you visitation rights, if the biological mother showed up wanting...

How to Obtain Legal custody of a child

A:  custody of a minor child is generally determined pursuant to a divorce proceeding. It is best to attempt to gain custody of your child at that time. However, it is possible to obtain custody after the divorce has been finalized by filing a motion to modify custody. State laws vary regarding divorce and custody laws and procedures, but the general philosophy is that the court looks to what is in the best interest of the child....

Q: 

Once you have partial custody of your child can you move out of the state?

A:  Not without the permission of the other parent or an order from a court. Not that I know of,you still have the get the permission of the other Parent. Yes, you can. You just can''t take your child with you. You can certainly announce your intention to do so; however the other parent has the right to appeal to the court to prevent you from taking the child with you. If you try to move without notifying the other parent you could be in for a world of trouble. If you only have partial custody, you can''t leave the state with the child without a court order authorizing you to do so (especially if you were married to the child''s father). If you...

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...
