Custody. My wife and i are getting divorced. We live in different States.She is in KY I am in WA. We have tried to settle peacefully. But as I received the final divorce decree from her lawyer the custody was changed from joint to sole on behalf of my wife. Our daughter lives with her. When I asked my wife she said her lawyer had recommended to change it to sole custody so my wife can take care of all the legal aspects of my daughters life. I have visitation rights as my wife and I agree to. But I am suspicious about giving up custody. My plan and hope is to eventually move closer to my daughter within a few hours to be able to be more fully part of her life. What should I do, how serious is this I don't want to loose my daughter.
Her boyfriend (Eddie) live together (NOT Married), and have
Julie and her boyfriend (Eddie) live together (NOT Married), and have a 2 month old baby. Eddie has decided to leave the relationship but wants to be a part of the baby's life, including contributing financially towards the baby's needs. Julie and Eddie are both here illegally (Mexican Citizens), but the baby is born in the U.S.A.Eddie wants for Hilda, and him, to go to a notary public so that it could be documented on paper what they both have agreed for Eddie to give Hilda for the baby. Is this a good idea? How can Hilda protect her right to full-custody? or shared-custody? Hilda is financially struggling but does live with her brother who helps her with her needs. Can Hilda begin a custody agreement through the courts? sometimes they offer free-assistance.sorry, got caught up with the questions... thank you
I have a question about my five month old daughter. I am
Hello my name is***** have a question about my five month old daughter. I am recently living with my boyfriend in California the only reason I stayed with him is because I' was pregnant I even gave our daughter his last name. I want to know what my rights are with our daughter. My boyfriend is still married and has been going through a legal custody battle for the last 2 years trying to keep his kids away from his wife. I would like to move to the state of Utah where I have family that can help me out while I am not working for at least a year. I would like to file 4 sole custody of our 5 mouth old daughter, that is breast feeding. My question is, Do I have the legal right to move her out of state and do the laws in all states require that I live there and establish residency for six months before I can file?. I really do not want to be stuck with a custody battle in the state of California but I also want to follow the law and not be accused of kidnapping our daughter.
My question relates to writs of prohibition for a family
My question relates to writs of prohibition for a family court case. This is in the code: "Jurisdiction of writs of mandamus and prohibition (except cases whereof cognizance has been taken by the supreme court of appeals or a judge thereof in vacation), shall be in the circuit court of the county in which the record or proceeding is to which the writ relates".What does "except cases whereof cognizance has been taken by the supreme court of appeals" mean? How is cognizance taken?
I'm pregnant from my ex boyfriend who lives in a totally
I'm pregnant from my ex boyfriend who lives in a totally different state (700 miles away). What must I do legally and ethically in keeping the child? I have not spoken to him since we broke up and would prefer not to include him in the life of the child because there was a great deal of manipulation, lying, drugs and alcohol on his part that I came to find out about in the last few weeks of our relationship.
My ex husband is the custodial parent, there is no
Hello,My ex husband is the custodial parent, there is no communications clause in our divorce decree defining when I can speak with the children on the phone. He moved 5 hours away from here and therefore it has become much more important to be able to talk to the kids over the phone. He has not one time answered the phone when I call, & it would take 3 or 4 days for the kids to call me back, if they even did (kids are: 14 & 9). To try and help the situation, I requested that we set a time each week for the kids to call, which he agreed upon as Sunday nights. They have called every Sunday as agreed for the last month. The catch is that they make the kids call me while they are in the car, with my ex & his girlfriend every time. Absolutely no privacy. This is the only time I am able to talk to the kids. I have called 4 times in the last few weeks during the week & got no response. I asked to set up a time through the week and his girlfriend messaged me back, telling me the kids are too busy through the week to set up a time- but they could call anytime they had free all they had to do was ask. The one time my son called, we talked for five minutes and then she came and told him she needed her phone. I need some advice. I plan on trying to modify the order once we reach the one year mark in Feb. Until then, what can I do? I understand they are not technically in violation of the order, but this is not right. It is bad for the kids, I think there is definite Parental Alienation going one and I am worried. Any help will be much appreciated. Thank you!
I was bullied into signing a contract for temporary care
I was bullied into signing a contract for temporary care giver to my 24 step daughter of my 5 kids. I was told do it or they go to CPS protective custody and will be separated. They did this to me 14 days after their father died unexpectedly in his sleep. It was agreed that she would allow me 2 visits a week 2 hours each. It's been 21 days and inhavent seen my kids. She didn't take them to his funeral aS requested , and then didn't allow me to visit that day. She has totally broken the agreement. Does this void it ? How do I go about throwing this out ? It's not court ordered or anything to that effect .
