QUESTIONS

  • This past February (2014) my kids father and myself came to an agreement that he would take the kids to school two days a week. However he takes them to school late often, they're not finishing homwork, and are loosing sleep because he lives far so theyre waking up about an hour earlier then when i have them. Is there anything i can do about this? Ive tried resolving this with him but he refuses.
  • I have sole custody of my daughter. A person, I lived with at one time, received in locus parentis rights and received parenting time with my child. Does this person have to get my permission to vacation out of state with my child or can she take the child anywhere she wants without my permission?
  • If the father pays child support, does he have visitation rights?

  • I have a 7 year old sister from my father and his ex-wife has custody. she hasn't let me even talk to her in about 3 1/2 years, except when I was with my father, but i don't live with my father and I was curious if i could file something in the courts to compel her to at least let me talk to her on the phone?
  • Can I request to get custody of my daughter through the court if 1. her mother cannot support her, she doesn't have a job. Her mother is also not following the court orders regarding visitation.
  • my child is 3. ex has never provided child support or medical help. even after being ordered to do so 12/09. ex is on/off drugs. rarely showed up to visitations. child and i have had orders of protections (expired 5/2011) against him for violence towards myself in past. many other acts of violence were made on his part, regrettably i never reported them. he is being investigated by cps involving another child who has been hurt. but no charges against him yet. it is an ongoing investigation. i fear dearly for my child's and my own safety. what are my chances of getting his rights removed?
  • my grandsons mother refuses to let my son see his son they were never married his name is on the birth cert. and until the end of july she only seen him once in a while my question is--can she legally keep him from seen his son
  • Can i deny court ordered visitation if my childs safety is a concern? ie. my children were victims of child abuse and they just informed me that the abuser has been living with their mother within the last few months and she has allowed this with my children there during her scheduled visitation. my younger child does not feel good about this arrangement and stated he was not comfortable being around this person and that the visitaions have been different. i feel that this is not in their best interest so therefore i did not allow the visitation.
  • I'm sepporated from ex. She moved to Florida with the children. She was told by the court she would have to pay to send the kids to NY. She recently said she will no longer send them unless I pay for them to come. Ive taken her to court for breaking the court order before. Nothing seems to work. She also never lets me speak to the kids on the phone and now its been about 6mths since Ive spoken to them. Im tired of fighting. If I give up my rights as there parent do I still have to pay child support. She no longer wants me in their lives just wants me to pay child support.
  • I recently fieled Oder of protection against my exhusbands new wife. My children go to the school where she works. This makes it so I can not go to the house or thiere school to pick up my children on my days to get them. My ex will not meet me anywhere for me to get my children. What do I do, what are my options?
