Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
I would not be opposed to setting formal custody with the court and yes I would like to know how to do so.
Thank you. Apologies in advance for the momentary wait while I am typing out the answer...
I'm a little worried here. My soon to be ex-wife is behaving poorly and has lied to me regarding where my son is and with whom. I haven't seen him in days and would very much like to see him. Ultimately, I probably will have to file for custody and I will most likely do it pro se.
What if I were to go to the residence where he is being kept and asked to see him? What if I just left with him, if and after i obtain access to him? Technically, I am his father and since there is no court order, I have a right to see him. Would this be construed as poor behavior? I won't call the police but what if they do? Who here is more in the wrong?
Thank you for your timely response. I would very much appreciate leads to pro bono and low cost attorneys in the state, specifically Lake County, OH
thank you again
