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: 

Permanent custody of foster child (family) vs adoption?

A:  The state will not FORCE an older child to reunify if the child does not wish to do so. The standard age for a child to speak for him/herself in Court is 12. (children as young as 7 have been allowed to do so if the Court finds that the child is competent to do so.) I think since it is a family placement at an older age, the Court is doing the right thing. This way, the child has both permanency (guardianship is an extremely arduous task to overturn) WITHIN his biological family and is able to retain his original identity etc. This child is old enough to also have feelings towards and memories...

Q: 

How do i get custody of a child thats not mine but stays with me all the time

Q: 

On what grounds can I obtain sole custody of my child?

A:  Sole custody is granted when it is in the best interest of the child. As a general rule, visitation with both parents is considered in the best interest. The only way you would be awarded sole custody would be if you can prove the other parent is unfit and puts the child in danger. child Abuse and child Neglect have a much higher threshold than a general statement that you listed. If your complaint is against your ex, then I suggest you find a way to deal with him directly. After all, you slept with the guy. You reproduced with the guy. Now you want to ''screw'' the guy by obtaining ''sole custody'' of the

Q: 

Abusive birth mother fighting foster parents for custody?

A:  Sadly, this is an all too common happening and the kids get the brunt of it all. children get removed with the best intentions, but intentions don''t mend the abuse or brokenness. The children are appointed an attorney and counselors or psychologist, the parents are appointed a separate attorney and counselor or psychologist, and dhs has an attorney. The foster parents don''t have an attorney but are to do family counseling with the children. Foster families are there to care for the children while the parents try to get their lives in order. The children are wards of the state. The state tries to place the kids with family (making the family foster parents), but if...

Q: 

Should I fight for full custody of my daughterr?

A:  Here''s your standard: would a neutral, third party person agree that it is in your daughter''s best interest for you to have full custody? And, despite your objections to your ex''s living conditions, do you truly believe that it would be better for your daughter to be completely taken away from her mother? Think hard and think carefully, and then go with your conscience. Her living conditions won''t matter if she fights to block your move. You don''t have a good reason to move. You have to file the intent to relocate with the courts and give a copy to the mother. She can then object. If she objects you have to prove this is in the best intrests of the child. If she...

Will a father receive custody of his child if the mother is incarcerated?

Q: 

Can a mother who doesn't have custody apply for child support?

A:  does your husband want full custody? What does his son want? His son is of age in most states rather to visit his mother or not. While the child is in the custody/temporary custody of the parent he/she has the right to request child support for the child in their custody. Main thing is what does his son want, does he want to live with his dad and visit his mom, or does he want to live with dad and not visit mom, or does he want to live with mom...

Q: 

How long do my fiance and I have to have temporary custody of a child before we can fight for perm. custody?

A:  I''m sorry, but the law doesn''t recognize monetary investment or record keeping rigor as good measures of custodial excellence. In other words, you can''t buy a baby by putting a lot of time and effort into taking care of her. Treating her better than her parents do does not mean you have the right to keep her. If that were the case, anyone could go into a hospital or homeless shelter, pick up a slightly neglected child, lavish attention on her or him, and get a court to take away the parents'' custodial rights. That would be legalized kidnapping. Even if it were better for the child, this country has always taken a very conservative and cautious path in terminating...
