Q: 

Giving custody of a child to someone else?

A:  Hi rpope904@att.net, Are you saying your wife''s best friend wants to adopt this child or just assume legal custody until the family sorts out their problems? The child is in danger so yes, DCF does need to be involved. They will probably place the child in a home that has already been pre-approved for care until more permanent arrangements can be made, preferably with a family member. The immediate concern is getting medical attention for the child as soon as possible. DCF may know of a foster home that specializes in care for babies with those types of health problems. It looks like the decisions for the child''s...

Q: 

Mom wants to move out of state

A:  Because they are not married, she has full custody. Thatgives her the right to take the child with her when she goes. If he wants to get custody of the child he will need to get an attorney and convince the court that it is better for the child to saty with him. Your brother needs to talk to an attorney.

Q: 

What happens if a natural mother wants to give the child up for adoption but the father does not?

A:  If a mother does NOT agree to put the kid up for adoption, the father is on the hook for child support. Same rule applies in reverse. If the father blocks the adoption, the mother is legally responsible and has to either care for the child herself, or pay child support while the father cares for the child. (In theory. In practice, most custodial fathers are afraid that if they ask for child support the Mom will sue for custody and win, so fathers rarely ask for child support). Can the father block the adoption? The law...

Q: 

How to get child back to custodial parent?

A:  Why haven''t kidnapping charges been filed against her?!?!?!?!?! She''s in violation of the court order. I don''t think the father''s attorney really knows what he is dealing with when it comes to the mother''s conduct. The father at one time had a very good attorney, but unfortunately passed away. The attorney probably knew the case inside & out. If mother won''t contact the father as to when & how child is going to be returned, is there anything that can keep father from going to mothers state to pickup the child? This as always been about the father not marrying her and her not wanting to work. In other words child support. I think...

Q: 

How to Adopt or Gain custody of Siblings

A:  “I would like to know how to go about getting custody of a younger sibling, I live in Idaho and the child in question is in Wyoming. I am 20 years of age, financially stable and completely supporting myself. I am also a child of the foster care system, and was adopted when I was in the Fourth Grade. I lived with my biological mother until I was three, until her then boyfriend beat me so severely that I had to be hospitalized. I was then put in foster care, and she was given certain terms to live by in order to regain full custody of me, i.e. becoming financially stable, staying away from the abusive boyfriend, staying clean. My mother...

Q: 

Parents Unmarried in WI... How does custody Work?

A:  Did he sign birth acknowledgment? He has not taken responsibility for paternity yet, but plans to on Nov. 15 when we go to court. Then he currently has no rights BUT he will have rights once the court case is over. Prepare for visitation as well as child support. Remember too that custody of your child isn''t ownership. You both created the child, be prepared for many years of conversations with this man over your child. She needs to prepare for much more than mere conversations with the father. She needs to prepare to co-parent, and raise the child in as stable an environment as possible without alienating

Q: 

Should I get a lawyer, Would any court giving me custody of my brothers?

A:  If Mom/your brothers live in the US... You''d have to prove Mom unfit, which takes a lot. The fact that they think Mom is ''mean'' to them could or could not mean a darn thing. My teenager says I''m ''mean'' whenever he doesnít get his way, but Iím far from unfit. The fact that you were removed by child services years ago (obviously at least 10 years ago) is completely irrelevant. The fact that they want to come and live with you is also pretty much irrelevant (minors don''t have the right to choose for someone other than their parents to have custody of them). Discuss the situation in detail with a local attorney. I can''t even read that much of a rant or ? or whatever it is. Dude if it means that much for you to...
