A request must be made of the court to override his power to object, or to remove his parental rights and responsibilities. Because most countries, including the US, do not honor the Hague Treaty when it comes to custody rights claims made by fathers with foreign orders, there must be a limit on allowing these passports to be granted. Only Cuba, who did not sign the Treaty, honors foreign orders equally, regardless of the gender of the claiming parent.

Maryland, Florida, Virginia, W.Virginia and New Jersey allow a female minor to marry without parental or guardian permission if she is pregnant or already has a child. Kentuc…ky allows the action with the permission of the district court. All other states (except Nebraska) require the consent of parent(s) or guardian for persons under the age of 18. FYI, all states (with the exception of Nebraska) as of 2/27/06 have established the legal age of majority for minors at 18.
Whether or not a mother can take a child out of the state without the father's consent depends on the custody order that is in place. If there is no formal agreement, she …does not need permission to leave the state with the child.
Yes you can because it is legal if a guradian or parent allows it to be for a certain amount of time. Usually depending on their age. (time varies)
A mother cannot move a child across the country without a father's consent. However, if it is spelled out in separation or divorce papers, she can.
The father of the child can marry the mother without a parent consent if they are 17 in the state of Georgia?
They either have to have the parental consent or a court order to get a marriage license.
I don't believe the mother can do that in any state. There is an order of how things are supposed to go. The mother must ask the courts permission to go and it must be g…ranted. Fathers do have rights.
If a mother has custody of a child can she waive child support and move without consent of the father?
Child support may be waived only with the consent of the court/agency that entered the order. The divorce or support order may contain language about moving the child.
Yes unless he goes to court to have the support order modified. He is responsible for that child regardless of where the mother is. However, he can get a court order to have… the child returned. The mother has no right to leave the country without the father's, and court's, consent. Most countries in the Western World have some sort of reciprocal agreements regarding child custody.
(in the US) Customarily, yes. The baby would need a passport to leave the country and a US passport cannot be issued to the baby without the consent of both parents. HOWEVER -… if there is any intent contemplated to permanently separate the father from his child, no, that is unlawful. This is especially true if there is some kind of legal action taking place over divorce and/or custody matters.
Provided it is just for a trio or vacation, and not a permanent move, then possibly yes. In other circumstances no. It depends a lot on marital status, legal custody, and any …existing court orders. Consulting a lawyer would be a great idea to find out the legalities for your specific situation.
Generally no but you haven't mentioned marital status, legal custody or existing court orders.
That depends on state law where the child legally resides and the custody/visitation order that is in place. You need to provide more information to get an informed opinion.
Only if the mother has been granted sole physical custody of the child and has the court order to prove it. Otherwise, no, the State Department will not issue a passport for a… child without both parents' signatures if both parents' names appear on the child's birth certificate.
That depends on the mother's custodial status and the terms and conditions of the original custody and visitation order. There is no "one size fits all" answer that can be giv…en without info about the custodial status and even then, court orders may be modified.
Can a mother take her child to live with her out of state without the fathers consent if they are not legally married?
That depends on state law where you live (or country if you live outside of the US). Some states allow the custodial parent to move freely, other states may require written pe…rmission from the non-custodial parent and/or a court order. You would need to provide the state where you live for a specific answer.
Not if she is a minor. She is only emancipated regarding her baby and her own health. The father has a legal right to see his child but not the mother until she is 18. Parents… have the right to decide who their minor is seeing.
In the US, no and yes. I believe Utah is the only state where the mother only have the obligation to notify the father of her decision but he can then seek custody and stop th…e adoption. So getting his consent or give him the custody if she does not wish to parent the child, would be the better choice and prevent suffering for hopeful adoptive parents and waste of money and time in court. If the father's paternity has been established legally, no. The court will require his consent to the termination of his parental rights so that the child can be adopted legally. This is one of the most complicated areas of law. Each state has its own laws regarding unmarried birth father rights concerning an adoption. Reputable adoption agencies take precautions to notify the birth father of an adoption and obtain his consent. Any adoption that takes place without the father's consent is risky. There is always the chance the father will hear about the adoption and he can challenge it if he didn't consent. Birth parents parental rights must be terminated in court before an adoption can be approved. Courts will ask for the identity of the father so that he can be given notice of the proceeding. The mother will be required to attest to her answers in the petition. A mother who is not truthful in answering that question may cause problems later if the father shows up after somehow hearing of the adoption. The courts generally require a diligent search for the father if the mother reports that his whereabouts are unknown. In that case a notice is published in the local newspaper. Notice by publication could leave the proceeding vulnerable to challenge. You must seek expert advice in your particular jurisdiction.
