Customer Question

My boyfriend has not been able to see his children for over a year. Since he has been waiting on court and her being served (she avoided being served), he moved out of the state for a job opportunity. Tomorrow he is going to court for parental rights. He can't move back to his home state until the end of May. Is there a way that:

1. He can get a continuance to allow for the relocation
2. Stay until custody has been decided and ask the court for his visitation to start in May? Will the court take into consideration that he has to relocate?
3. Can he also get rights to see them before he leaves?

Daniel Solutions :

Hello, Thank you for allowing us to assist you with this problem. I am not fully aware of what prior steps you have taken.

Daniel Solutions :

All of what you seek can be awarded by the judge if either the mother does not object to the requests or your boyfriend can convince the judge that such contact is in the best interest of the child

Customer :

This will be the first day in court. The mother uncooperative so there is a possibility that she will deny him everything. Can he either get his case continued for time to move back to where the children live. Or can he work with the judge to start custody after he has relocated.

Daniel Solutions :

He can ask that the matter be adjourned but unless he is able to relocate within a short time period such as a week or two, just a request would not allow him time to relocate. He may have to withdraw his petition at this time and refile after he has relocated if the could will not give him such time to relocate as I doubt he would be granted a long extension

Customer :

If he did not file the petition can he withdraw it?

Is Parental rights more important than custody. My aunt and
my aunt and uncle divorced and my aunt has full custody rewarded to my cousins back in 2011. The court has has also found the father unfit to take care the children. She passed last week and child services had to step in and give temporary foster care to my brother who lives in the same state of my aunt. At child protective services, my uncle agreed to give custody to my mother as long as he keeps parental rights. My concern is two-tiered. Does parental rights mean that he can file for custody when he is ready and does these rights also hold bearings with my aunt's life insurance, which will go to my cousin's? … read more
