Parent Category: Law & Legal Issues
The law has a special place for children and minors. This topic covers the laws designed to protect children from abuse.
Well It depends if their kids are doing badthings and the kid won't  llisen to them to stop doing whatever they are doing, then they  will give up on their kid.
Yes, she can. He must establish his paternity as outlined above and  then can petition the court for a visitation order and joint  custody. The court will set up a visitation order and consider the  petition for joint custody. He would need to provide compelling  evidence that the mother is...
Legally, in North Carolina, you cannot leave your parent's home  until you reach your majority (at age 18). Although, it is true  that in some counties in North Carolina, the police will not make  you return to your parent's home if you are age 17 and one half  years old. (No, I will not name...
It depends on the individuals concerned. The custodian can insist  the other parent travels to them to visit the child. If the  non-custodian wants to take the child out for the day - it's their  responsibility to return the child to the place of residence, on or  before the agreed time.
aways knows whats best even though we do not think in other  words they are mean lol i am 12
18 is the age of majority in most states.
I don't think you could do this, in most cases. The age of majority is 18. That's when you're considered a legal adult and you can make all your own decisions. In some cases a minor can be legally emancipated. You would want to contact a family lawyer in California to ask about this. Otherwise you...
When they are 18 unless the legal guardians agree to it..
Short answer: no. The laws differ from state to state, but at the  moment you would be hard-pressed to find a state that strict.  Generally speaking, you must live in a state (among other  requirements) for a consecutive 12 months before you may even apply  for residency in that state. Meaning,...
Most likely. Just about every state will intercept federal and state income tax refunds for child support arrears.
  Liberals are all for individual rights. The Patriot Act involves phone tapping, invasion into personal emails and records. Thus, Liberals are very anti-Patriot Act.
An 18 year old is an adult in MA. He/she may move away from his  parents without permission and support himself. His parents are no  longer obligated support him. (Except that one parent may be under  a court order to pay child support to the other, but this is not  relevant to the 18 year old.)
How old is the minor, and what state is this in? There are  different laws at federal and state levels regarding the possession  of child pornography and coercing a minor into lewd sexual acts.  Generally speaking, even if the "someone" in question is under 18,  they are still in possession of...
you need to contact sheriff or dhr, the sheriffs office will get it  in court fast
If she no longer a dependent of yours she should no longer be  entitled to the payments. They should have been paid to you anyway  for her behalf if I'm not mistaken. I'm sure a check was never sent  in the name of a minor. Make sure she does not call them pretending  to be you and change the...
It depends on your state's custody laws. For example, California is  a "mother state" where the only way a mother can be denied full  custody of her children is if she is so grossly unfit that she is  institutionalized. Other states may prefer the father, but  generally very few states have a...
Although some states allow the Court to consider an "election" by a  child of a certain age (usually beginning at 12-14) regarding which  parent he/she prefers to live with, the Court ultimately decides  what is in the best interests of the child by considering a variety  of factors.
You need to contact the agency that seized you refund. In most  states, this is called child support enforcement or something  similar. You need to review your account and confirm that there are  no mistakes in their records.   If they've gone far enough to seize a tax refund, it is likely...
The legal age of majority in the state of Texas is 18 years of age as defined by the Civil Practices and Remedies Code for the state of Texas.
If there is a said written agreement but all of that falls upon both parties and has to be formed around the laws that protect both sides of parents based on past acts of retaliation and hate for the other part for other reason then the best interest of the said child. It would be wise to have a...
You should set a minimum age. Most parents set a minimum of ten  (10) years of age. Kentucky doesn't have any laws about children  staying anywhere alone. To be honest, I'd aim for roughly fourteen  (14).
As indicated by Florida law, both biological parents have parallelcare rights to the child :)
Yes you can sue your parents.
It depends on state laws, and situations where the child may be unable to maintain responsibility (mental, physical, or behavioral disorders). Most states will base it off of the child's responsibility or safety. Basically, it's mostly defined by logic. Meaning, it would be very difficult to either...
I am not sure about the laws in New Jersey. However, in almost every state, minors (under the age of 18) are not legally allowed to purchase any sort of medication. Even if it's as harmless as benadryl. Chances are, the law in New Jersey is probably the same as everywhere else. Hope this helped.
If he has primary custody or even visitation rights, you cannot  take his child far enough away that he cannot readily exercise his  custody/visitation rights unless he gives you permission to do so.
The Colorado Department of Transportation Frequently Asked Questions web page states that "Colorado law stipulates that children under 1 year & under 20 lbs. must ride in the back seat; however, the safest practice is to keep children in the back seat until they turn 13."Being able to sit in the...
While the courts have made various rulings in a variety of ways, a student actually has no more or less rights than an adult. An adult who walks into the store does not have the right to dress as he likes, smoke as he likes, yell (or argue) at clerks as he likes, fight with customers as he likes,...
Swimming pools owned by associations are owned and operated by the  association. Read your governing documents to determine the  age-restricted use for the amenity.   No state law specific to common interest communities specifies use  at this level of detail.
If you have joint custody, visitation rights, etc. and she is  preventing you from exercising those rights, this could be  interpreted as Custodial interference. Take her back to court for  make-up time and contempt proceedings if desired.
16 Years of age is the limit.

Yes. Believe it or not, well over 90% of all reported kidnappings are just a parent taking their child away from the other parent.Addendum:It could be considered kidnapping. It might be considered the lesser charge of Custodial Interference.
  One might imagine a warning of potential hazards or risks that in a given product or attraction might be harmful to kids but not to adults- Pg-l3 plus films, size and height requirements on some amusement rides (usually indicated with stick-figure dummies if your as tall as me you can go on...
IMMEDIATE TEMPORARY CUSTODY of a child is granted to a custodial  relative by a probate court when a child is given to a grandparent  or other relative by the parents, and returning the child would  result in the child's being removed from the court's jurisdiction  or places the child in risk of...

That depends on what problems the child have. In some cases it has to be paid when they are adults because they can never take care of themselves. The duty to support a disabled adult child is an extremely complicated issue and the laws vary from state to state. You can read an interesting and...
You can't just put them out the door and tell them good luck, but  you do have options. Keep in mind that the laws and regulations  vary from state to state, so you will have to check in your state  for specifics.   Don't put them out because you are angry. Whatever they did, let  yourself...

  The parent has every right to do as needed for a child who has not reached the age of consent. Pregnancy makes no difference--the age of the girl trumps everything. The baby's father has no control at all.
The curfew time in the state of California varies for each  municipality. Many places have a curfew for children under 16 at 11  pm.

Yes, the courts want to see that a father has taken finical  responsibility for a child and if the biological father has  forfeited his rights through adoption, the adoptive father is now  the responsible party, NOT the biological father through the eyes  of the court.

Answer . That is a tough one. If they are abusive you can involve the local authorities. If not you will have to settle that in court; which takes a while. I know of one couple who split and the husband moved into the basement and is still there; the divorse has been in the courts for over a...
Divorce and children are very difficult subjects. For the most  part, it is the children who are hurt the worst in a divorce. Care  should be taken so that hurt can be minimized.
In my opinion, 21 makes you an adult because you can now do everything your parents can do. You can sign contracts, you can vote, and you are responsible for your own actions.
If an order is still in place, yes, even in Michigan. see links below
It depends on where you live.
  == Answer ==     No, court ordered visitation can only be revoked by the judge issuing the order (sometimes by an appeal to a higher court). The mother should insist her legal representative petition for a court order to enforce her visitation rights.
Answer A custody ruling is handed down by the courts and is legal. Your ex has broken the law! If you are working or married to someone else and all is well between you and your new husband, then you have a good chance gaining full custody of your son/daughter in a court of law. However, think of...
Yes, if there was a court order in place requiring support and it was not suspended/terminated during the father's incarceration.
Yes, they will. If the amount you are getting back is more than the amount you owe, they will seize the entire refund. It's happened to me twice. I am currently up to date and have almost paid of the amount I owed, but they will take it if you have back child support payments. Fathers get their...
Yes, if you have parental permission. They are still responsible for the child. But they can determine where the child lives.

If a 17 year old attempts to move out of the home there can be  legal consequences. The minor can be charged as a run away and put  in a home for children until 18 years of age.
The answer is no because your not a legal adult until your 18 Years old
  Yes, you can move out at the age of 17 in Georgia. That other guy has no idea what he is talking about. You can legally move out at 17 and can get approved emancipation at the age of 15 or 16 (not sure which) if you are pregnant.
can you divorce your parents?  no you can't but you can get emancipated!
At 18 you may move out legally, without being called a runaway. And while you can work at the age of 16, it is at 18 that you can enter into contracts - such as a lease for an apartment.
Most laws say children should be supervised until age 12. Even then, the lack of maturity can lead to problems. Never leave a six year old home alone.
Yes but you may get in trouble with the courts so the best thing to  do is report the abuse first witj CPS and then go straight to court  office and file for emergency temporary custody due to the  circumstances and once approved have law enforcement escort you to  the residence to pick up your...
