What would you like to do?
It's not likely, as custodial and visitation issues are based upon the welfare of the child or children. If the child or children are not placed in a dangerous, neglectful or abusive situation or are emotionally traumatized due to presence of another person, then it will not be relevant to the court. Any of the noted problems would be based on the evaluation of a trained professional (psychologist, social worker, medical doctor,etc.) not on the testimony of the other parent or other involved persons.

Can a father get custody of a child during a divorce if the mother is seeing someone before the divorce?
Answer The fact that a parent is seeing someone else before a divorce takes place should have no impact on custody whatsoever, unless the other parent feels that… the third party would have a negative impact on the child, or would endanger the child in any way. As each case is judged individually, you need to get a lawyer.
If department of social services took custody of children away from the mother can the father get custody if they are separated pending divorce?
Answer YES, IF YOU ARE GOING THROUGH A DIVORCE, YOU NEED TO ASK FOR CUSTODY AS PART OF THE DIVORCE SETTLEMENT. THIS WOULD BE THE BEST TIME TO DO IT BECAUSE IF SO…CIAL SERVICES ALREADY TOOK THE CHILDREN FROM THE MOTHER , THE JUDGE WOULD EASILY GRANT YOU CUSTODY THE CHILDREN.
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 father gave full custody of the children to the mother on their divorce papers what right does the father still have to see his children or share custody?
You have the visitation rights that were established in the divorce, and you have no custody rights.
when or why? Mothers will lose custody if they are found unfit by a family court
By listening to an attorney telling him not to try. see links below
When a divorced custodial father dies and the children are under age can grandparents get custody of the children?
The law differs in different countries. United States State laws vary widely in the United States but in almost every state the biological parent has sole rights to cust…ody of the child. If a custodial parent dies the surviving natural parent will normally be granted custody of the child unless they have already been deemed an unfit parent. If the grandparents want custody they would need to prove in court that the surviving biological parent was unfit to take proper care of the children. The grandparents have a better chance of success if they can prove the surviving parent was not involved in the child's life and that they had a parent-child relationship with the child, took the child to normal activities such as doctors appointments or school and they cared for the child over extended periods. That is why the US returned a little boy to his father in Cuba when his mother died while bringing him to America. This was done even though the parents were divorced and the grandparents fought to keep him in the US See related question below.

Is their a waiting period after a divorce is finalized before someone can fight for custody of a child?
The custody issue should have been addressed in the divorce proceeding. You cannot reopen that case immediately since the court will be reviewing the same evidence. Generally,… you need to wait until there is a significant change in circumstances. You should consult with the attorney who represented you in the divorce.
Not unless she lives with him and is a convicted pedophile or something. Each of the parents will probably have a new spouse one day and then none will have custody? Life move…s on and that will not affect custody.
If no court order is in place stating otherwise, the biological mother has presumptive custody of her children.
He has every right to go back to court to petition for joint custody, yes.
Can a father take away the children if mother has primary custody after divorce and moves in with boyfriend?
This is 100% up to the judge. To change the custody agreement or order requires a trip back to court. Would like to add however that moving in with the boyfrind as long as… he is not a danger to the kids, is not something that normally changes custody. It's just moving on with life after the divorce.
Yes, there is no law that says you can not.
Unless the person who moved in is a danger to your child, this maynot change anything in regards to your custody battle. Some peopledo not end up being divorced for may years …after the breakdown of amarriage, so it's tough to say when it's the right time to begin anew relationship. That being said, even while in the midst of a court battle, no-onecan dictate whether a former spouse can move on with their life ornot, and even when they do, that doesn't take away anyone'sparental rights to the children.
Yes. Use of steroids is illegal and may place the child at risk. The father could be deemed an unfit parent if the drug use is brought to the court's attention.
