QUESTIONS

  • My stepson just passed away at the age of 33. He had sole legal and physical custody of his children, ages 4 and 5. He was never married and the mother of the children has only supervised visits at his discretion. She is currently involved with DCS and has been for almost 3 years. We have filed for permanent custody. Because my husband had sole custody would he have had automatic custody of the kids? They have lived with us for 3 years with their father. We also had guardianship of the kids for a year before father retained sole custody
  • At the age of 15 can you choose who you want to live with?
  • I have been taking care of a 2 year old since he was 4 months old. His mother is in and out of prision and has had no contact with him, his father is about to go back to jail and has given me a POA but we want to sever mothers rights and move forward with adoption so hes legally mine but arent sure where to start
  • I filed for support.. he just filed an temp order.. was ordered to do a hair follicle.. I haven't.. can they still take my son?
  • I have full custody of my 11 year old daughter. She wants to live with her grandmother and I am going to let her. I do not want to lose custody, I do not want her address changed, I do not want to pay child support. How do I go about this?
  • is it leagal for an unwed mother to move out of state with kids if the mother has posesion of them?
  • I am 21 years old and was wondering if I can have custody of my little brother (his 13 years old). Both, my mom and his ex are not good for him. His dad always talks negative stuff about my mom and my mom is afraid that she would loose custody of him. I have a good job, my mom lives with me, I'm married, what are my rights?
  • my 2 year old son has his fathers surname we are not married but he wanted this to be,i was wondering if i leave my boyfriend will he be able to take my son away just because the child holds the same surname as him and not my surname?
  • Can I obtain custody of my child if my ex neglects to care for him/her? when the child was in her care, he/she came back to me with impetigo on parts of his body dr's say the is due to uncleanliness. He/she has no babysitter so she drops him/her off at local relatives home.
  • I have a court date coming up in a few days for a petition for Emergency custody my wife has asked her attorney for. I am looking for a paid attorney for myself, I think I have found one but she wont be able to do so for about a week or two, so she said to request the courts grant a continuance to give her time to prep for my defense. I am wondering how I can go about requesting this without a lawyer present? Will the judge be able to do this?
