Q: 

Should I pursue law as a Career PLEASE HELP!!!!?

A:  Sorry, but from the perspective of a lawyer, you are not a great writer. The writing skills, or lack thereof, that you''ve illustrated in your question are evidence of that. When people talk about lawyers being good writers, they are largely referring to not only their diction and wordsmithing, but their grammar and spelling as well. You not only lack grammatical skills with regards to punctuation, but with capitalization and spelling. While I generally would not strongly recommend a specific undergraduate courseload for law school because it is generally not important to have a specific major for admission into a top law school, in your case I would recommend that you focus on classes that...

Q: 

Does CSPA apply in my case?

A:  I wish to inform you that CSPA may apply to a Derivative. In this regard, CSPA applies to a minor who was petitioned but who has turned above 21 because of delay by USCIS. Further as you are a Derivative, under the provisions of CSPA the time taken to process your application by USCIS may be subtracted from the biological age. AFF Thanks AFFA you''re truly a God sent. God bless you Does the time taken to process the application means, ? The Date Immigrant Petition became current (Sept. 16, 2010) minus The Date Immigrant Approval (July 18, 1990) or The Date Immigrant Approval (July 18, 1990) minus The Date Immigrant Filed (August 8, 1985) "The more complicated case involves a child who is a derivative of a family-based petition.

Q: 

Can I save a child/teen from a life of neglect or/and abuse? (Details included)?

A:  its much much more than just a home inspection to adopt. An adoption home study must be done and approved by your state. This involves many interviews, background checks, classes, tons of paperwork and many thousands of dollars. And all this has nothing to do with having the parents claimed abusive and the child removed. I guess since you question is vague, it requires a mostly vague answer. Usually in order to adopt anyone, the childs custody needs to be taken away from the parents via court. Also the parents have to give up their rights to the child. You could certainly FOSTER a child once...

Q: 

child custody when not married: What can I do to get equal time?

A:  I wish to inform you if the parents are not married then the legal relation of the child is with the mother only until paternity is proved. Therefore, if the father wants to have child custody or child visitation then first father has to prove paternity and then have parental rights towards the child. In this regard, the court determines the best interests of the child as the main consideration and you may show that the best interests of the child are with you and you can take care of the child. Further, you may argue in court that the best interests of the

Q: 

Can someone be denied visitation rights to a child if he asked for an abortion when he was notified of the kid

A:  No. That is not grounds for denial of EITHER visitation or custody in ANY jurisdiction. Probably not because this was brought up in conversation only (hear say) or was anything put down in writing about the abortion. I do not think this will affect your visitation rights. It is very possible he could be. If he hasn''t paid any expense while the woman was pregnant and child support he doesn''t has much to stand on. I think that it can definitely be used for that. He didn''t want the child in the first place why the sudden interest? The father will always have visitation rights unless the court orders otherwise. It is the law. No. By

Q: 

How to terminate my ex-husband parental rights

A:  The law prefers for children to have two parents. Terminating one parent’s rights, without having someone else step in and take their place, isn’t favored by judges. This is based on the fear of having deadbeat parents give up their parental rights to avoid having to pay child support. A parent’s rights can be terminated as part of a juvenile case, but that means that there is serious abuse and neglect. Also, juvenile cases are filed by the state, so it is not something you can file yourself, or hire a private lawyer to file for you. Typically, a parent willl need someone else who is willing to adopt your kids once your...

Q: 

How to Determine if Behavior is Grounds for custody Change

A:  “My son was living w/his than girlfriend and her two children (by two different fathers) She had a baby w/my son. They were living in the duplex she was living in (thru state assistance) until the state found out and they were told to “get out”. I said I would add an addition onto my home so they could live here. Since they’ve been here, there has been nothing but problems. She goes out almost every weekend by herself, goes on vacation to Florida, Puerto Rico by herself and always my son is here with his son and her other two children. Now, she decides that she’s leaving and taking the baby with her (my son’s baby) Does he have any grounds that he can use to get custody of his...

Q: 

Wondering what it would take to get custody or guardianship of minor in a non-related party?

A:  a non-relative can get guardianship or custody. But if the grandparents already have temp custody it might be hard to do unless the grandparents are in agreement with the non relative having the child or if the courts feel the non relative would be a better option for the child. Family usually comes first unless there are good reasons for them not too. It also sometimes depends on who the bio parents wants to raise their child. I am a non relative with guardianship but relatives are in total support of us having them. It is very doubtful that you can or should attempt to gain

Q: 

child custody... Will I ever be able to move back to Australia?

A:  Why is it so urgent? Did you marry your husband under deceit just to get into the country? You won''t get full custody of the child. The best you can hope for is joint custody. The father will likely retain custody of the child. I''m in the same boat, we have minor children in a 10 years of marriage, will I ever be able to move back to Australia with my children? I don''t have any spritual / emotional support in the US! Quote: Quote:...

Q: 

child custody: does he have rights to him if he did not sign the birth cert?

A:  I wish to inform you that in the matters relating to child custody, the court considers the best interest of the child as the main consideration. In this regard, in case if parents are not married then mother has the child custody unless paternity is proved in court. Mother is the guardian of the child and mother has the right to take custody of the child. The father may apply to the court and undertake paternity test. Once paternity is proved, the father can apply for parental rights to the court. AFF Quote:...
