Q: 

Can she take the child away? Ohio Ohio

A:  Can she take the child away from me the father just because she does not like me or trust me? I admit, I said something painful to her at the beginning that I did not want to be a part of it. ( I know very bad). We have gotten in arguments where I have called her ghastly names which I take back and wish I never said. She is only 4 mos pregnant now, and I would like to help out every way possible finacially and emotionally. I love her, she is my bestfriend. Now she wants nothing to do with me nor my help. She has even decided on the child''s name boy or girl where the baby will not have my last name. I asked her if I can go to the ultrasound, see the child when it is born. She said, I under a...

Q: 

Pregnant Daughter - custody Question

A:  At this point, what can she/we do to be proactive with regards to custody? Get your daughter to an attorney now, without her prince. He or she should be able to answer all of your questions. First and foremost the question of paternity will have to be determined. This likely would be after the birth. I would also seriously discuss listing the prince as the father on the birth certificate. Personally I would lean towards not naming anybody unless and until paternity is determined. Will a judge really allow him to take the baby away from the mother to another state? That question likely would depend on evidence presented at a custody hearing in regards to which parent could provide the most...

Q: 

Anyone get sick of waiting?

A:  Originally posted by Shawn Johnson Carey, I''ve been thinking about moving too! Not a simple decision but I''ve never had kids involved. The two times I moved overseas have been wonderful and prosperous (both times to Brazil). Unfortunately, for me, I would have just as much paperwork as Lara does in coming here and I would move to Russia in a heartbeat. But economics have a large part to play in our decision (I can earn significantly more here than I could over there). Carey, I''m not sure what state you''re from but here in my state, you still have to have the non-custodial parent''s permission to take the child(ren) outside of the US. Best of luck with your decision! SJ On Sun, 20 Jul 2003 15:47:21 +0000, Careybear wrote: I''m just wondering if anyone on here...

Q: 

Grand Theft (Employee Theft)

A:  Your sister and her husband can make arrangements to place the child in your custody while they are oling "their time". Talk to a local family law attorney about this one. They clearly need to do something. Otherwise, the state likely will arrange for foster care. The police do not need to read suspects their rights at the time of arrest. That is a common misconception. They do need to read the Miranda rights during questioning at the police station. Quite honestly, I doubt if you truly know what happened at the police station. I suspect that the interogation was video-taped and that her "confession" was more voluntary that you realize. If she wants to withdraw the confession and have it...

Q: 

I really need some feedback on whether I should pursue this...--Q

A:  I''m a little confused but I think you are claiming that the issue of 2002 was resolved in court. Let me ask you this -- what is on the complaint that was sent to you with regard to this case? That is a matter of record and might indicate what was resolved. Additionally, it would seem difficult for the attorney to claim that he didn''t resolve this matter in the hearing you had but would needless use up more of the court''s time in resolving it separately. I could see an attorney getting chastised for it and even condescended to by a judge for not consolidating -- or claiming to not have consolidated -- the entire action in one claim. It seems only logical that the 2002 and 2003 amounts were resolved at the same time since they arose from the same claim -- these being the key words the...

Q: 

custody Battle- Help!!

A:  Hi, I guess I am a little confused. What happened to the petition for joint custody? Why is it taking so long to go to court? About the current situation, try and look at it this way. You are the port in the storm. You are the only people these kids have that they can rely on to take care of them, to make sure that they are okay. You are the only ones who can teach them about personal hygiene, about how to take care of themselves, about growing up to be good people. It's a big job, but all you can do is put socks on those feet, wash those dirty bodies, and be happy that in their lives, you are gold! Spend every opportunity you can to provide them with the skills to be more proactive about their care. They are so young, they may not even realize yet how they...

Q: 

Do people really think foster care is ethical?

A:  Interesting question. Sometimes, I say sometimes foster care is not ethical in nature. The institution is not always ran appropriotly either and families are wrongfully separated. So your question is valid. I had a very close friend and her sister when I was young who popped in and out of foster care quite a bit in the 70''s and the 80''s. There foster care experience and stories were far worse than living with there parent''s that were a little disfunctional. In foster care they went unfed and had less than adequate sleeping quarters and clothing. On holidays they were forced to eat oatmeal in a separate room from there foster family who enjoyed an extravagant dinner. They endured verbal abuse and physical abuse also. Even though there parent''s had some issues they loved and wanted to be...

Q: 

child custody Fight--Q

A:  It is not his child until he files in court for paternity/parenting time/child support. He can''t take the child from you, it''s not his child till he does all that. Even after he is proven to be the father, he can''t just keep the child away from you without a court order. At birth, you have custody as you''re not married. When he files for parenting time, he will be given some, unless you can prove he is an immediate danger to the child. Your state may have guidelines for time with a newborn. You don''t have to list him as the father on the paperwork for the birth certificate, but that...

Q: 

Adoption Question! need help please ASAP!!!!?

A:  I am 22. Not too much older then you. I am engaged to the man of my dreams and he has 2 kids. Not to judge you but, as a woman, and his future wife, if I was in this situation I would never suggest he put his child up for adoption and keep mine. Once you are married the child becomes your responsibility as well and you should step up, be a woman and help him take care of his kid. It is unfair to his child and yours for you to suggest adoption. That''s your baby''s sibling and they should be raised as such. If he has no way of taking care of the baby he has now, he has no right to bring another one into this world. I think you should really rethink this marriage thing because it is obvious that you nor him understand...

Q: 

Anyone had any negative dealings with social workers?

A:  Oh yes, I have had my fair share But I know the policy re: foster care in my state and I was not about to give up since I knew what I was doing as a foster parent. Here we have a foster parent bill of rights--which gives foster parents certain rights and responsibilities. We also have the right to file a grievance against a worker when our rights have been violated. After taking placement of a child I asked for daycare--which is a working parents right-----and was denied ---until the next morning at which time I was told yes I did qualify for daycare services. Wow, that''s bizarre. Firstly, they are damaging the mother/baby bond that way, but that might not mean that they are planning to take the baby away......
