My husband had a child by another woman in January. We have
My husband had a child by another woman in January. We have already had the paternity test done and it came back that the child is his. So we have also went to child support and got all that done and they have started taking out the child support out of his check. The problem we are having is being able to have some visitation time. She won't allow him to take her at all to spend time. We were told that we could file a pro se petition for visitation rights. We live in Arkansas and I can't find that form any where. No one will tell us anything and every lawyer we tried talking to doesn't want to hear or tell us any information to help us without paying their outrageous prices. I have found so many other states and their petition but not for Arkansas. If you could help we would appreciate it very much. Thank you
I want to grant custody of my child to my sister and her
I want to grant custody of my child to my sister and her husband for reasons of safety, from myself and my ex-husband. My Ex is not on the birth certificate and has no legal documents stating he has any rights to him at all. How do I start this process? Will a judge grant my ex full custody simply because he is the biological father or will they look at what is the best environment for him?
I married a woman from Ukraine who staid just enough to get
I married a woman from Ukraine who staid just long enough to get her green card and then immediately returned to her country. She is now claiming she got pregnant just before leaving the country and wants child support based on the texas child support rate. This is very strange since I've had a vasectomy. I'm asking her for a paternity test and to stay in Texas so that I can see the child.Can she be required to provide a paternity test before putting my name on the birth certificate of the child? If she chooses to live in Ukraine, is child support calculated based on Ukraine law or Texas law? If Ukraine law, what would child support be in Ukraine? What if she lives in Crimea, the part of Ukraine annexed by Russia?Thanks
Greetings, I am currently living in Costa Rica with my son,
Greetings, I am currently living in Costa Rica with my son, and for the last 8 years, his mother and I have shared custody based on verbal agreements. Things have recently shifted and i am being villainized by her family, and I believe they are scheming to take control of my son's future. I was scheduled to bring him home this weekend, but they have not responded to my need to have a clear schedule of custody sharing, and my fear is that once I return him, they will start legal action that would keep him in their possession. I want to know my rights in this matter, are you available for a consultation by phone or skype since I am not in the country.
