Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
A custody agreement that is not ratified by a court does not really mean much in terms of being able to enforce it via legal recourse. However, you can still go to court and ask that they approve the custody agreement as in the "best interests of the child." You can use the custody agreement as evidence of what should be accepted by the court.
the custody was decided in court
we went to family court a year and a half ago
i am going to the police station to file a report
is there a another course of action i can take
my wife has been smoking pot and and was found guilty of neglect over a year ago
she still continues to smoke
she has reported to dss to living with her parents so i removed her from the lease. is that legal?
She smokes pot and drinks. she has been found guilty of neglect. do i have a case in getting sole custody of my daughter?
When i go to the police station what should tell them? that has taken daughter against my will?
I am in the process of drafting separation papers through rocket lawyer. on her css paper she states that she lives with her parents. i contacted the landlord to remove her from the lease as she told me that she is using her parents address is that legal. she does not pay rent and frankly refuses to.
Can i request a hair folical test to see if she is using something other than pot?
I have to go to family court to file the petition? can draft the separation and give it to her myself? will filing an eviction notice help my case? there is no way to file an order of protection is there?
by the way thank you for all your help
