I have a question about custody of a young child (12 months

Good evening, I have a question about custody of a young child (12 months old) in the case of divorce in the state of Florida. I'm the mother, married to the father. I'm sure there's no specific answer you can really give but I'm looking for some reassurance. I feel trapped in my marriage because we have such a young baby and I could not bear being apart from him for even one night and I'm scared that if I divorced my husband I would have to be apart from my baby due to joint custody. Is there any general way the courts in FL usually handle physical custody of young children? (Where the baby resides and sleeps every night)? I'm his mother and he needs to be with me.

I am going through a custody case. I must send in a response

I am going through a custody case. I must send in a response form within 21 days which asks me if the request should be denied or granted, however the paperwork I received does not state the other parties request. How should I answer that without fully knowing what the request is? Also it does ask what my requests are. I would like the other party to have visitation rights of course. However I'd like them to be supervised. What information should I include with my request?

My boyfriend and I are getting married soon. He has 3 boys,

My boyfriend and I are getting married soon. He has 3 boys, 2 younger ones whom he loves dearly and provides for. His oldest son is on his own. My concern is that the 2 younger ones mothers will put him on child support out of jealousy because he married me. Can they do that? Will it effect my income seeing as though I make way more than him? Can it be prevented? Of course he has a parental responsibility I just don't want the financial strain on us over pure misery and vengefulness from these bitter women.

For the last month, my 12.5 year old daughter has refused to

For the last month, my 12.5 year old daughter has refused to go to her visits with her dad, I will physically take her to his car but she will not go. Her dad does not try to call her, or come to get her except on days that he picks up our son, he doesn't ask how she is doing, and I have made several attempts to have him come over or us meet somewhere to talk with her about this, and he will not agree to do it. Now he's filed contempt charges against me, and is asking for jail time. I don't have the money for an attorney.JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And just to clarify, have charges been officially filed?Customer: Iowa, yes there is a court date on the 15thJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: I have a lawyer, but I can only afford to pay him 400 a month towards the balance I have, and he will not represent me unless I can pay him 2000.00JA: When we are ready I'll take you to the appropriate web page.Customer: What do I do? What good does it do for me to go to jailJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: I pay him 600.00 a month in child support, summer visitation is a week on week off, school year he has them 4 days more a month than I do, he has a new girlfriend that is a doctor, and is paying for his lawyer, and he has no job, lost his house, and wants the kids to change schools this fall bc he moved out of town.

My sons father did not see him from Christmas day until the 25th of June for less than 10 minutes. The only reason he saw him was because my sons grandmother took him for the night and went to pick up his older brother from his father. Since then he has only asked to see him once and we happened to have plans for that weekend. He has no job, and no place to live. Can I file to get his parental rights terminated here in the State of Alaska?JA: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: AlaskaJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: NoJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: Not off the top of my head.

I have a one-year-old son. s father and I are not together,

I have a one-year-old son. His father and I are not together, we broke up two months after he was born. He is on the birth certificate and assigned the paternity papers in the hospital. I live in South Dakota, and I need to know if we have equal rights, or if I have custody currently. I am very afraid of him and it makes me uncomfortable to have to trust him with my baby, but I don't know what the laws are.
