Family Law Questions? Ask a Family Lawyer Online.
Hello and welcome.
My name is Tina and my goal is to provide you with excellent service today. I am sorry to hear of your difficult situation. Before I can give you an accurate answer to your question, please provide the following additional information:
Your question is whether you gain full custody of your child if the mother leaves the child with you for over 10 months? Are you and the mother married or divorced?
I look forward to assisting you as soon as I have received this information. Thank you.
i am looking to have her rights terminated and have my wife adopt my son.
she sometimes calls to ask about him but the call is brief and usually at late hours or when he is sleeping. when i say he is fine and say what he is doing she says ok and has to go.
she says she is attending high school down there but could visit on the weekends or holidays. she also says she doesnt have money but gets her hair done and gets tattoos. she seems to have missed alot of school there because she calls and is not in school. when i ask why rnt you in school she said they do not have it i call her school to verify and they say they have school. she is lieing about her attendance.
if the local courts do not grant the termination can i go to high levels and if so what are they. and will her being a student effect the courts decision.
from how the law is written it seems cut and dry since she hasnt provided any financial support and hasnt had any contact for over 6 months isnt this cut and dry?
ok. what do u think my chances are of termination.
