If a parent has been absent for 4 years of a child's life can visitation be granted to that person despite his drug abuse and criminal history?
This is certainly a difficult question and it's obvious you arevery concerned about the child and well you should be. If the father has cleaned up his act (for sure) and made …a valianteffort in doing so, then you can (only if you want) introduce yourchild to his/her father. It is recommended that all visitations aresupervised by you or someone else that the courts deem. If you just want to get on with your life and leave the fatherbehind because he is more trouble than he's worth, then please seekout legal counsel and go through the proper court system to getsole custody. Since the father of your child has a prison recordand known to be into drugs you have a great chance of getting whatyou want. Good luck Marcy Sorry, but sole custody does not repeal a biological parent's isvisitation privileges. The court treats these type of situations onan individual basis. Obviously if the father was incarcerated hecould not visit, but he could still have kept in communication withthe child/children. It is very likely that he would be grantedvisitation (supervised if circumstances warranted) courts areadamant about parents being afforded their parental rights inaccordance with state laws. Of course along with those rights comesthe obligation of child support and in most cases adequate medicalcoverage. Answer also: Best thing you can do is contact your local Women'sRight Center and Social Services. They can outline the process andgive you literature on how to proceed. If you do not have legalrepresentation and cannot afford it, that can be provided for youas well. Best to you.
Answer . \ndepending on the crime you did but you should be able to have vistation right with supervision of 2 hrs once a week.
Answer . You have to have documentation for this reasoning and go to either the attorney you used and they will file a motion to appear before a judge again or go to the c…ourt house and file it yourself. Usually better to get the same judge that ordered the first decree. If he is a danger to the child or abusive or unfit, you have to prove it.
No, South Park Mexican (SPM), whose real name is Carlos Coy, was convicted in 2002 of aggravated sexual assault of a child and sentenced to 45 years in prison. At the time of …his conviction, he was 32; he's now 40 years old..
Well if you are the mother or father, wanting to ask this question. YOU must press charges first. Most states will not release an abusive father or mother, back to the famil…y if there has been reported abuse and more then once. Sometimes only once, it depends on the state and how much they will tolerate in that state. If you are the child asking this question. You may not have any right to press charges against your father or mother for that matter. But they may take you out of the home. Permanently and find you a relative or family member or friend you can stay with until it is sorted out in court. In most states by the way depends on the laws. You will not be returned. If you are over the age of 12 years old in most states, you have the right to state where you want to be. In some states you can leave from the ages of 13-17 years of age to a friends and/or relatives and never return home. Your parents cannot come out after you either. Why? It is the law. IN most states. Not all most states though. I know this from experience. The child leaves for even a friends house and the parents come after the child to bring back home if that child does not want to return and you try to forcibly bring the child back home, the police can and will be called out and the parents can and will be arrested. I know this from experience.
Can your 9 year old child's father voluntarily sign over his rights if the mother is not married to her boyfriend and the boyfriend has been in the child's life since she was 8 months old?
Not without approval of the court and provided the mother is not on Welfare now or in the future. As for the boyfriend, there's no guarantee that will last.
With the approval of the court
Does my child's father have rights after no communication or even seeing him after almost eight years?
Yes I believe he does if he is the boys biological father but you should talk to a judge or your lawyer
You would like to know does the father have any rights if the have not been in there child's life seance they were born father is tring to get incontact after six years?
No, the child has a right to a father, regardless of how long it took fir him to come around. Neither being a mother or a father makes a mom or dad. That takes maturity, and f…ar too many women force men to be a father when they are not yet ready to. But, unlike the woman, he can't simply kill the developing child to get out of being a parent, than produce another when it's finally convenient. Age 18 is a legal adult, but it is not adulthood. In females it's age 18, and in males, it's age 30, so he may have needed some time for his brain to mature and come around to the fact that he was a father. As for women who have children under the age of 24, clearly most of them are not ready for it with the high rates of fatal child abuse committed by them. Don't be a gatekeeper mother. Let him be an equal parent. Your child deserves that from you and him. see links below
Yes, depending on the reason he's there.
What rights does the father have if the mom is in jail and they had never been to court for custody before?
Generally, if the parents are unmarried the mother has sole custody and control in most states until the father can establish his paternity. Remember, a child's mother can alw…ays be identified by medical records. Since the father didn't give birth and he was not legally married at the time of the birth he must seek other means of establishing his paternity and that is done through paternity test. A paternity test can be arranged through the court and once established the father can request visitations, custody or set up child support for the child.
Depends on how severe it is and where you live but the really bad cases is life in prison.
What are the child's rights to life insurance of deceased father that terminated his parental rights?
The life insurance proceeds are owed to the beneficiary(s), regardless of parental rights.
Can a father lose his visitation rights if he goes to jail for a year in Ca He always exercised his visitation up until the day he got taken in?
That depends on the nature of the crime and whether conditions of parole or probation have been met (and if not, if such conditions would prevent a hardship for visitation, ei…ther for the parent or the child). In general, courts would prefer to maintain visitation for a non-custodial parent if at all possible, however if they feel the parent would present a danger to their child after they are released, they may temporarily (or more rarely, permanently) strip visitation or order supervised visitation for a period of time. You need to speak with an attorney in your area, provide information about your case and the nature of your crime and get an informed opinion.
Possibly. It depends on what the crime committed is. If it is mass murder definitely but something like shop lifting probably not. It just depends on what you committed.
Yes. When your probation is revoked, you return to jail. Your probation is not always revoked when you violate its terms, however.
