Q: 

Girlfriend wants to move with me, effects on her custody arrangement?

A:  She doesn''t need to change the status of anything but I think it would be safest if she could see if she can file a motion through the court to allow her to move the child out of state. She can call the courthouse and ask them about it. Grace, Thank you for your reply. She is asking about changing jurisdiction from WA to ID. Im not sure I understand her, so Im going to have her explain to me what she is looking for. Im sure I will post again. Thanks again Charles No problem, come on back if you guys need help!...

Q: 

How Are custody / Visitation Rights Affected if the Custodial parent Moves a child Out of State?

A:  ‘What are the procedures to modify custody / visitation if a custodial parent decides to move to another state (the side effect of such a move makes visitation harder or financially impossible)? How about international moves (not just a visit but permanent change in residence)? What is the likelihood they may lose physical custody all together or be denied due to lack of funds to pay for visitation? Is the assumption that the move will be denied or that they will lose the child all together founded or unfounded?’ This is a very tough question, and the answer is even tougher. In most states, a moveaway will be readily granted to the custodial parent so...

Q: 

Custodial parent giving up rights?--Q

A:  Mom does not terminate her rights, you just file for custody. Save everything you have as documentation but if mom is going to drop the kids off at your house, getting custody and child support stopped should be pretty easy. If she is moving from VA to Ca it is a lot more than 600 miles..more like 2500. My question is, if mom has been this unstable why didn''t you file for custody earlier? Do not let mom dictate your relationship with your kids. Grow a backbone to her. You need to file for custody ASAP....

Q: 

Fighting for custody while the father is away at school..

A:  "Should I get a lawyer?" Yes and you should have had one a couple of years ago.  Is this guy on the birth certificate?  Has paternity been proven?  If not, he would have no claim until paternity is proved.  In addition, you likely wouldn't get any child support unless and until paternity is proven. So, I would do whatever it takes to get an attorney.  If you go to court without one and he shows up with representation you might get steamrolled.  "I recently filed for custody and child support..." Did you file the papers yourself?  Have you tried contacting any social agencies and asking about legal representation?  How...

Q: 

custody Issue with autistic child--Q

A:  Originally Posted by sandyb My daughter is going through a very nasty divorce. Her 3 year old son has autism and/or mental retardation. She wants to get "sole" custody of her son as her and her husband are always at odds. Since her son does have autism, the "exchange" factor during any parenting schedule is very, very important, as he does not do well with change. He currently resides with his mother and goes to the pre-school system where they reside. However, at present, the father has "temporary" custody of the child until the issue can be decided either by them both reaching an agreement or by the judge reaching an agreement. Regardless of who has

Q: 

Obtaining sole custody of my child

A:  Hi, Seeking sole custody will not prevent the biological father from seeking, or being granted, visitation. You both have the right to parent the child, whether the child likes it or not. If it has been a while since dad has seen the child, you might be able to get temporary supervised visits, but your status as the sole custodian in no way eliminates or reduces the father's right to a relationship with his child. Sue :) That is correct. I have sole legal and sole physical custody of mine, and we have the standard visitation order to see dad. More than once I've had to threaten to get them into the car to...

Q: 

My Ex Disappears and doesn’t Show up for Designated Visitation, Can I File for Sole custody Without Visitation?

A:  “I have been divorced for a few months now, my ex is turning out to be the typical dead beat dad. He disappears for days without returning phone calls and/or text messages, and no one knows where he is. Right now I have sole physical and we have joint legal custody, I want sole custody of all 3 kids without visitation. He doesn’t show up when he says he will, and I’m sick of making excuses for him to the kids. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to make him give up his rights to them, or at least give me sole custody with supervised visitation.” If he wants to sign an agreement with you to forego his parental custodial rights then that would likely be...
