QUESTIONS

  • I am in Arizona, my daughters father lives in California. I am letting her go to California to be with her father for a couple weeks. What happens if he does not want to give her back?
  • I live in the state of michigan. I have an 18 month old little boy and my ex boyfriend is trying to take custody of him from me. I have had my son for the last 14 months on my own and live with my boyfriend in michigan. I have court and cant go to arizona due to the fact I just had a new baby. I am trying to file a telephonic appearance form but have not been able to locate the forms I need to file. this is the only thing standing between custody of my son and me showing up.
  • Can I do a change of venue if I and the kids in question have lived in one place for over 7years and the mother opened case in other county where she lives? How do I request and complete change of venue to my county?
  • my son was born in arizona, his father and I do not have any legal custody papers but my son has been residing in las vegas for the past 8 years. I want to be able to have my son visit for the summers or what not but I am not sure how to go about it, especially if his father is not willing.
  • If a parent is in the military and their legal state of residence is Arizona, and so was the spouses and children at time of filing, wouldn't that give Arizona jurisdiction for child custody? Even if neither person had lived in Arizona for the past 11 yrs? Parent filing at the time was stationed overseas, but has since moved back to the states. The other parent (who has the children) resides in Kentucky, but at the time was not a legal resident of Kentucky.
  • I have to take my kids on zoo in sc doing the I have the kids. Do I have tell their mom or get her perision? We have 50/ 50
  • We have 50/50 joint custody and joint decision making. Can one parent refuse to let the other parent be the first option of watching their own children?
  • My husband and I are going through a divorce due to domestic violence. He has pleaded guilty on the aggravated assault on my daughter (not his child) however did not plea guilty to the assault on me.

My oldest child father is involved but my 2nd child father hasn't called, hasn't seen her,nothing in like 6 years (she doesn't want to see him). All children live with me and my fiance.
