Answer File for custodial rights in the appropriate state court in the city or county of residence. Be advised that the mother's illegal status …is irrelevant in custodial proceedings as US law presumes both biological parents have equal rights to a child until a court rules otherwise. Furthermore, if the couple were not married the law presumes the mother (illegal or not) retains full custodial rights to the child until the father establishes paternity, files suit for parental rights and a ruling is made by the court.
Could the father obtain full custody of his child if the mother is exposing the child to drug and alcohol abuse?
Answer Logic would dictate that the answer would be, absolutely. Unfortunately, the reality is, maybe. In circumstances such as descr…ibed the judge will often deny full permanent custodial rights and allow an unfit parent the opportunity to take parenting classes and a rehabilitation process. Generally in such a situation the responsible parent is awarded temporary full custody and the unfit parent is allowed supervised visitation until he or she sucessfully fulfills the court mandated obligations.
Who will get custody of a child in a divorce if the mother is a US citizen and the father has a 'green card'?
Answer Custody is awarded based on what is in the best interest of the child, therefore the judge will award primary custody to whichever parent is b…est suited to care for the minor child. The issue of the father being a legal immigrant does not invalidate his parental rights to a child whether they are custodial or visitation nor his obligation to pay support if he is not granted primary custody.
If she is found to be unfit or addicted to drugs she could lose custody. Additionally, if she refuses to give the father visitation the judge could find her in contempt an…d change custody to the father.
A mother can lose custody by being deemed an unfit parent by the court. The factors used to determine that a parent is unfit are generally governed by state laws with child e…ndangerment being the determining factor. These are some reasons a mother may be deemed unfit: Abusing the child, but beating themLeaving the child alone while she goes outLeaving the child with someone unfitThe mother does drugsThe mother is an alcoholicNot feeding the child properlyNot addressing health issues with a doctor, clinic or hospitalAllowing the child to be outside for hours at a time alone and not cared forThe mother brings too many different men around and neighbors complainThe mother is always tossing the child from one relative to the other so she can go out and have fun.Not providing a good or safe environment for their childIf the child is old enough to go to school, not giving them the opportunity for a decent education. (the father should give child support for this.) These are reasons you can't be called an unfit mother: Getting a better education and leaving your child for those hours with a grandparent or responsible friend (this includes working)Not having enough money to live in the best of neighborhoods, but your home is clean, tidy and you do the best you canCooperating with the child's father regarding visitation rightsMaking sure your child receives decent medical careGiving all the love and support you can to your child and you don't have to be wealthy to do this. There are other ways a mother can lose custody to the father which have nothing to do with her being a 'bad' mother. For example: if the child is old enough and expresses a desire to live with his or her father, the judge will often take the child's wishes into consideration when making his or her determination. If the parents live in different towns, the judge may also take into consideration which parent has more family living near by, which can provide stronger family support. Also, if the father lives in an area which can provide better schooling, the judge may take that into consideration, as well. None of these guarantee that a parent will win custody, it largely depends on the judge, and all of the circumstances.
In nearly all countries, when deciding things like custody, the courts are simply concerned about the welfare and safety of the children. You need to ask yourself if you…r drug habit is consistent with providing for your children's safety and welfare.
If a mother and father have joint custody and the mother gets arrested for drug use and the kids are put into his care does he still have to pay her child support?
If you have joint custody I don't understand why you are paying child support. I have joint custody with my oldest daughter and we share her in her support. When she is with m…e I pay her bills when she is with her father he handles the bills. As far as medical we both have insurance and split the difference down the middle. Yet we are best friends and have a wonderful relationship between our families. I gather this is not the situation you find yourself in. I would first make contact with your local Department of Children Services. This day and age times are hard for everyone. You should sign the children up for the Food Stamp or Snap Program. Based on the ages if any are under 5 you should sign them up for WIC as well. A father has the right to do this when the mother is avail. Next I would visit your local Family Support Council for parenting classes. It is harder to be an active parent than most think. It also shows great will to be a good father. Also they have resources that can be unmeasurable to one in you situation. My next stop would be the local Child Support Office. Their should be someone assigned to your ex's case. You need to have a copy of the arrest order and some proof that you have the children in you care now. Such as Food Stamp approval or Snap Approval; WIC if app.; Schedule of parenting classes with the Support Council. Any other information you can think of. Be strong and make a stand for your children. If you don't no one else will. You brought your kids into this world and they have a right to be raised by humans that will love and care for their every need. If you want to raise your children file for court order custody. hell naw
Yes. This has happened to my cousin.
Unfortunately, if family services has become involved, he may have to fight for custody. Either way, he has to petition the court. see related link
Generally speaking, a parent needs to be shown to be an unsuitable or incapable parent to keep custody of their child or children if legally challenged. Just having a relation…ship with another person won't do it in Western countries. Nobody would ever remarry or establish new family units if this were the case. There would have to be evidence of other behavior which might lead to neglect, ill-treatment, endangerment, and so on, of the offspring in their custody; this behavior might or might not be related to a new relationship; each case is different. The law applies equally to both parents in matters of custody, though factors must be taken into account in the legal process when custodial rights are in question which might necessarily favour one parent or the other.
Than a review needs to be made by the courts as to whether continued custody is in the child's best interest.
Hell yes! I had a record when I was 18 - I'm now 74 and have been raising children ever since. Having a record doesn't make you unqualified to raise children.
Yes and rightly so
The mother has presume sole custody and control, regardless of the circumstances in all states.
Yes she can unless she makes him leave. He can be considered a danger to the child.
The past is just that, the past. What the courts look at are present conditions. There are cases of felons receiving custody of their children if the court finds that person w…ould provide a more stable and loving environment for the child. For an informed opinion, you should consult with an attorney in your area with a specialization in family law, outline all of the details and you will receive an informed opinion on whether or not the father's criminal past would impact the judge's ruling in your custody case.
Can he? Yes. Will he? No one can predict. The courts always try to make an objective decision regarding custody based on the best interests of the child if a petition for mo…difications to custody is heard before them. If the court finds that the child's interests would be better served with you, the child will remain with you. If not, an alternate placement will be arranged.
