Family and Children

QUESTIONS

  • at what age can the child decide which parent they want to live with full time, i.e. court is now out of the decision process. custody is totally in the mindset of the child.
  • My ex husband commuted domestic violence against me, got charged with a felony false imprisonment charge, was put on probation and got ordered supervised visits through family court, his mom was the supervisor and he gave up visitations and didn’t contact us or go to court for close to two years, all of a sudden he wants 50/50 custody I got awarded sole legal decision making and he was re arrested for assault on a new girl friend but charges were dropped, will the court give more than supervised visits back?
  • My friends want to give me custody of their 2 year old son, since neither is stable enough at the moment. We all agree that if we can do this, that they should still be in his life as his parents. How would we be able to go about this? Would we be able to have joint custody between the parents and a non-parent?
  • I am in Arizona, my daughters father lives in California. I am letting her go to California to be with her father for a couple weeks. What happens if he does not want to give her back?
  • My ex and I have 50/50 custody. She frequently fails to pick up the children for her custody periods. Recently she dropped them off at school and told the school that I would be picking them up (again, her custody period). Obviously, I don’t mind having the children, but it is hard to manage impromptu scheduling changes in addition to the fact that I pay child support. What can I do?
  • I have had 50/50 shared everything (court ordered) with my ex for 6 years . He just moved to Florida with only a week and a half notice leaving our daughter with me. Nothing was filed when he left. Can I file that he abandoned our child and seek full custody? what would be the first step?
  • I just did my paternity test and Iam the father when my daughter was born my ex did not put me on the birth certificate so i want to get another birth certificate with my name on it? Is this a simple procedure done at the social security office just bringing in my paternity test papers. Cause my ex has the original birth certificate?
  • My husband wants custody of his three boys 12,10,8.He has joint legal custody with his ex-wife,butshe has primaryphysical custody but oldest wants to be with dad.She is abusive to the children and CPS are involved they said that they can't do anything about custody.My husband took one boy to sheriff after an incident but even though there was was a case opened and an ivestigation,when the report was sent to the district attourney's office they didn't continue to persue charges.She left a bruise on the boys face but since nothing was done about it what can I do if we can't afford an attourney?
  • At what age do you have a right to live with a parent you feel safe with ?
  • I was never married to my sons biological father who happens to be an illegal immigrant. Paternity and child support have been established by the court and I have sole legal custody. The Order states that father is not to pick up child from daycare. How do I enforce this?
