If a child is 17 in North Carolina and lives with his mother yet would like to live with his father can he just move out without legal consequences?
\nThis is not legal advice and should not be relied upon as such. Consult the specific laws for the state and county in which you reside for the rules that apply.\n. \nIn most states, any 18 year old is considered an adult and is capable of deciding when and where they reside. They have the abili…ty to contract for housing. SOME states allow minors to become emancipated under specific circumstances, but this is not just a matter of filling out some paperwork.\n. \nA minor is the responsibility of their parents until such time as they reach the age of majority or are legally emancipated. The parents are required to provide for the support of their minor children. If the parents give permission, the minor can live in another location. Such permission does not relieve the parents of the responsibility to provide support. \n. \nIf the parents do not give permission, the minor can be considered a runaway. Charges may apply to individuals that aid and abet such runaways, particularly if they are under the age of consent. In some states it is my understanding that this is not enforced for 17 year olds that leave home.\n. \nIf you are subject to abuse, you should contact social services for your area. They will assist you in getting out of the bad environment and into a safe place. (MORE)
If a mother throws her son out of the home and he is dropped off at his father's house but his father has no custudy yet what would happen to the child during this process?
Answer . In most cases (if the father wanted the child) the child could live with the father and the father should be seeing a lawyer to get full custody. If both parents don't want the child (because the child is willful and into one bit of trouble after the other) then that minor can become a …ward of the court and be put into foster care.\n. \nMarcy (MORE)
If a mother takes the children to a different state and will not let the father know where they are is he responsible for child support if no court papers have been served yet?
Answer . No, he is not responsible until court papers are served. Also, he cannot pay if he doesn't know where they are.
Answer . This is more common that one would think. Mothers are still just women, and sometimes loneliness and the fear of rejection are her top priority. They sometimes don't feel they can support their child(ren) or themselves and can only see a meal ticket walk out the door should she confro…nt her spouse with the truth. There is no doubt that you and your mother have had normal arguments about other things so she may believe you are just trying to make trouble and trying to split her and her spouse up. It's called "denial." She would have spoken to her spouse and he would have certainly given her a good line that she would believe simply because she wants to believe. No, it's not right! I suggest if you are living under these conditions that you speak to either your school counselor, your family doctor or call Children's Welfare for help. You shouldn't be living in this environment.\n. \nGood luck\nMarcy (MORE)
What happens if your father has passed away with no will and his mothers estate has not been settled yet?
Answer . \nThis can become complicated and should be handled by professionals. Someone will need to start the probate of the father's estate immediately, so that debts can be paid (including taxes), and father's remaining assets collected for distribution according to intestacy laws of the local… jurisdiction. The grandmother's estate will need to be settled within a short time, to determine if the father's estate has anything coming, not to mention dealing with anyone else who has a statutory claim to part of that estate.

His mother was not Jewish. Adolf Hitler most likely formalised his opinions about the Jews after leaving home and living in Vienna, then having a major Jewish population. Many theories can be expounded but his lack of success as an artist and rejection from the Academy of Fine Arts perhaps had so…mething to do with it. Vienna at that time was seething with antisemitism and in his book "Mein Kampf" Hitler states that his antisemitism began here. He mentions coming across an orthodox Jew and thinking "Is this a Jew?" and then a moment later wondering "Is this a German?" There is anecdotal evidence to suggest that he put forward anti-Jewish sentiments in earlier in life, but we can also look to his treatment of his mother's doctor Eduard Bloch who Hitler respected for trying to help his mother, so much so that he put him under special protected while he went through the process of emigration to the US years later. As Himmler pointed out "everyone has their favourite Jew." (MORE)
speak to someone at the Children's aid society, or to the police, local hospital, and have the abuse documented. It all depends if she has sole custody or it's joint custody or even if the two of you are together. It is beneficial that if nothing can be done immediately that at least it's documented…. Maybe threaten her that if it doesn;t stop you will go to the authorities. She needs help and it must stem from something in her past, that she would keep the cycle of abuse going. She may not want to be abusive but it's all she knows. She definitely needs councilling to reverse this behaviour, and learn some new techniques. Raising a child right is the hardest thing one will ever do. Kids really can try your patience and you constantly have to find new and creative ways to discipline them. I was hit and abused when I was a child and unfortunately that was common back then. When we know better, we (should) do better.. In our city, we have a local Health Department that would be able to answer this question and steer someone in the best direction. If it's life threatening then go to the police immediately. (MORE)
There is kids help phone I guess, or you could tell your teachers at school or something. Or talk to someone else in your family, like a grandma or uncle, or maybe talk to your mom about it. If you don't know what to do just get help from someone.
Can a mother take her kids on vacation to another state without the fathers consent if the divorce is in the early stages and not finalized yet but the acknowledgement of divorce has been signed?
This depends on the jurisdiction, but MOST states have a rule that says a parent can't leave the home state with the children with the intention of depriving the Court of jurisdiction over issues related to the children. Thus, MOST states permit vacations outside the children's home state, provided …that they will be returned to the jurisdiction at the conclusion of the vacation. (MORE)
Does a mother have a right to keep a child from her father if there has been no custody decided by the courts yet?
Yes, but only if there is no order, temporary or otherwise, that states that the father should have reasonable access to the child. While custody proceedings are pending, there is typically a document issued that requires some sort of visitation with the parent that the child does not live with. If …there is such a document, you don't want to violate it because it will hurt your chances for custody. However, if there is no document that gives the father either visitation rights or states that you must give the father reasonable access to the child, then you can do whatever you want until a court order is issued.

How does a father file abandonment charges against the mother who has not seen her daughter in over a month?
Although the law varies from state to state, a month is not long enough. Most states will require at least a year.
You have not given enough information about your situation foranyone to be able to even provide their opinion. Abusiverelationships are not identical, and the abuse can be done by themother, the father, or both, or brothers, sisters, other relatives,even unrelated individuals in the household. Do no…t rely on thestereotypes to educate you about who the abusive one is. Womenoften abuse in different ways to men, but it is not uncommon forthem to resort to violence. (MORE)
Your wife and you agreed to get a divorce However neither has yet filed your wife is planning to move out Does the law require that kids go as well although divorce filing has not occured?
Until you file for divorce, or legal separation - there is no legal requirement as to where your children reside. And as you may be smart enough to comprehend - this divorce and mom and dad living in different homes, etc. is going to be very hard on the kids. Who gets to decide where the kids stay? …And what if that is not agreeable to one of you?. Get a lawyer and get the paper's filed and get an arrangement worked out concerning the kids - and this, of course, includes child support, children's healthcare....If you think you can unofficially start "divorcing" yourselves from each other without things getting ugly (which really hurts the kids) then prepare for it to all hit the fan. And remember that until you legally separate or divorce, any debt incurred by your wife is still your responsibility. Cancel your credit cards now. (MORE)

Yes. The court can order it. Or child services can take the child from the abusive parent (by court order) and the other parent can file for custody. But it won't happen "out of the blue" without evidence. If there is gross abuse and it can be seen by any "casual observer" here, then social services… can remove the child immediately. Someone will have to "prove" abuse, though. It is not enough for the "other parent" to make claims. Even if they are true, in cases of dispute, the claims will be looked on with some suspicion. And you can see why. (You'll have to accept that, so do so, and then move on to the real issue.). Consult a professional. They are free or relatively inexpensive, at least upon an initial visit. If the issue is important (and it sounds like it is), it is worth it. But it is critical above all that the claims be accurate and be substantiated by someone. Unless the child comes forward with a claim (and injuries or the like), someone "outside" will have to come up with the things that can be used in evidence to show abuse. Be clear about what kind of "abuse" is taking place and look into how to prove it. Oh, and yelling at your kid is not abuse; it is parenting, and parents sometimes yell. Make an honest review of the facts and also what is going on inside you, and then proceed from there. And above all, look at things from the child's perspective. Honestly. The best interests of the child should always be put first, and they too often are set aside by an angry or bitter parent or parents as they struggle to "make the other party pay" for real or imagined grievances.. Take that hard and honest look at the situation and be clear about what is going on from the child's point of view before you fly into righteous indignation. It's a bit of an uphill battle, and you need to line all your ducks up to fight this. Best of luck sorting this one out. (MORE)
Deryk Schlessinger is the son of ultra-conservative radio personality Laura Schlessinger. At the time he became center of a brief scandal in the summer of 2007, he was serving in the U.S. Army in Afghanistan. A MySpace page which allegedly belonged to Deryk Schlessinger contained controversial ima…ges and statements about the war in Afghanistan. As of November, 2009, this story which broke in May of 2007 appears to have dropped out of sight by the first week of September 2007. The Salt Lake Tribune broke the story, which was then picked up by the Santa Barbara Independent, the Los Angeles Times , and the Washington Post . The Salt Lake Tribune may have removed the initial 5/19/2007 story by Matthew D. LaPlante http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-chat/1836510/posts According to the Santa Barbara Independent , Deryk Schlessinger was investigated by the Army after a complaint that his MySpace page contained provocative and inflammatory images of Afghans being tormented, as well as incendiary statements about his own bad behavior there. http://www.independent.com/news/2007/may/22/emnews-pressem-columnist-dr-lauras-soldier-son-und/?print . "Godless crazy people like me have become a generation of apathetic killers" and "Giving God reason to drown the world once more.". There were two photos from the MySpace page of men with guns to their heads. One photo was on TMZ. TMZ confirmed with an Army rep that a photo of a man holding a gun in his mouth did in fact appear on the MySpace page which purportedly belonged to Deryk Schlessinger. The man on the MySpace page appears to be the same man as in this photo of looked identical to the photo of Deryk Schlessinger with Dr. Laura and Andy Granitelli. http://www.tmz.com/tag/Deryk%20Schlessinger/ See also "DEPT.

"The 82nd Airborne Division in Afghanistan shuttered the pages on Friday. The Pentagon managed to immediately cleanse all evidence of the MySpace pages, including whatever copies and cached versions were kept by Google and the Internet Archive." . The Santa Barbara Independent reported at the end of August that the Deryk Schlessinger investigation was complete, but that the Army would not comment on whether he was disciplined. No criminal or administrative charges were made part of the public record. http://www.independent.com/news/2007/aug/31/military-investigation-dr-lauras-son-complete/ The Independent printed a brief summary of their August 31 coverage again the first week of September, 2007.

What are legal rights for fathers in Wisconsin if the baby has not yet been born but mother is in labor and adoption papers have not been cancelled?
I would think that if the mother and father are not together and the mother is willing to give up custody of the child to the father than the father would have rights to the child. If the adoption papers haven't been canceled yet they will have to be signed when the baby is born saying that the moth…er and father give up parental rights to the child (MORE)

"By canonizing some of the faithful, i.e., by solemnly proclaiming that they practiced heroic virtue and lived in fidelity to God's grace, the Church recognizes the power of the Spirit of holiness within her and sustains the hope of believers by proposing the saints to them as models and intercessors."

This is not a rule or law, just happens that more often the mother is found to be a more suitable parent than the father in custody cases.
Call the police. Get a restraining order. THAT SHOULD NOT be tolerated. It could lead to something worse.
How do we protect our family in court from a manipulative mother who tries to get her children to lie about abuse by the father?
I've been a Father's Rights Advocate for 20 years. See reference links below . Many think the courts are rigged against dads, but in reality, it is more about attorneys unwilling or lacking the knowledge to truly fight for the father's rights. This is why it is important to learn how to intervi…ew and hire the right attorney. It is also important to do as much as possible on your own and not pay the attorney to do it. Part of the problem with getting your rights knowing what to do to prove your case, and how to remind the judge of their responsibilities. Let me start with the judge. Always take people with you to court who are not there to testify. Make sure they are sitting where the judge can see them, each equipped with a tablet and pen to take notes. It's best to use a Court Watch Form designed for this purpose. I have one in the manual at Dads House. If the judge is not doing his job, using the info from this form, you can, appeal, and/or get the judge sanctioned and removed from the case. You file a complaint with the State Supreme Court at your state capital. Start keeping a daily journal of all your activities. The most common way to prevent a father from getting his rights through the courts is a false allegation, usually sexual. Over 60% of divorcing father are accused of child sexual abuse, of which only 4% are found to have any relevance, but there are no penalties for doing so. A daily journal is your number one piece of evidence in court and you can even refer to it while on the stand. Gather evidence. Check the site below to see if it is illegal to record conversations without the other person knowing. If your state does not have a law either way, than it defaults to the federal ruling which says one person in a conversation must know they are being recorded. You're that one person. In Missouri it is specifically legal, in Kansas there is no mention either way. If you live in two different states, and one has a law against it, than it applies when the call originates from within that state, Now, you can't just record, you also have to transcribe it into your daily journal. If you want to learn how to do all this go to Dads House in Yahoo Groups. Upon joining, you will receive a link for downloading a 200 page educational manual that can teach you what you need to know. Take the time to learn what you can and should do. (MORE)

A mother filed a divorce in Canada does she has the right to get her kids in the Philippines who were raised by her spouse?
She has to have possession to have filed for custody. Canada has no jurisdiction over the kids.
Or the father, as long as you're not in the home, but it needs to be through the court. See link below.
This depends on the type of custody arrangement and specific provisions, or restriction, of the divorce. If there is a legal obligation, than letters of intent to enforce need to be sent, similar to those used in denial of access. If ignored, take it to the court. Access to school records does no…t require her cooperation under federal law. see links (MORE)
You should always love your parents. If the abuse is real (and often it is only perceived) you should avoid being alone with them. Abuse should also be reported and verified. These are different then love. You should NEVER stop loving your parents.
How do you take legal action against your father who abused you but you already turned 18 and cannot fully move out yet but he still is abusing you only mentally now?
He is still abusing you either way. You can show legal officials scars, and tell them everything that has happened to you. Usually they will believe you and legal action can be taken.
If the mother is the permanent carer of the child,they must get permission from the father first.
No Mother Teresa has not been canonized yet. She needs one more miracle for that. Mother Teresa has not yet been canonized. She has been beatified.
What are reasons judge may grant change of venue for divorce and custody case filed over 3 years ago in TN but now child and mother respondent have lived in TX for 8 months also father is abusive?
Texas has jurisdiction after six months, and there the father can get a jury trial, where evidence of any abuse can be presented. If this is a false allegation, his changes of getting custody are greater, as most of these juries are older women who easily see through any lies.
No, "Mother Teresa" had her Beatification in October of 2003. The Beatification process can take decades before Sainthood.
Does a father have to pay child support if still married to the mother and the divorce is not yet final?

I do not believe that adultery is a criminal offence in most countries (it is in some Muslim countries) so I do not think you can be 'charged' with it.

As the non-custodial parent you would be liable to pay the father child support. You would lose your right to claim them for tax purposes unless an agreement is signed. You would have no right to participate in any decisions regarding the children. If you end up not together, you may have a hard tim…e with visitation and such because you would be giving up your rights. You need to consider that decision carefully. (MORE)
Is it okay to live with your boyfriend if you and your husband haven't filed for divorce yet but have been separated for 2 years?
I thinks it's alright. But there could be something wrong with it. Ask your lawyer or something.
Yes. As long as the father is not also deemed to be unfit. The factors used to determine that a parent is unfit are generally governed by state laws with child endangerment being the determining factor. The following include some of the reasons a parent may be declared unfit: . physical, emoti…onal and sexual abuse . excessive discipline . failure to protect the child from abuse by others . failure to report abuse of the child . neglect- failure to provide food, clothing, proper hygiene, necessary medical treatment, schooling . failure to provide proper medical care . failure to provide day to day parental care . serious illness or disability . mental illness . substance abuse or addiction . alcoholism . criminal activity and/or associations . incarceration . conduct or conditions that are seriously detrimental to the child . abandonment . child endangerment . leaving the child unattended or in the care and supervision of a child . a failure to provide adequate supervision . unsafe living conditions . a medical condition that makes it impossible for the parent to adequately care for the child .

Can a mother move to another state with her kids after a divorce if the father has visitation rights?
With his permission but not otherwise. If you moving leads to visitation not working, you are breaking the court order. Answer No. The move needs approval from the court as well as the consent of the non-custodial parent. The move should be reflected in a modified visitation order or agree…ment approved by the court . If the mother moved with only the "consent" of the non-custodial father and he later changed his mind, he could file a contempt order and the mother could find herself with time consuming and costly legal problems.

Can a mother file abandonment charges on a father who has custody because the father has not picked him up from a different state when the mother came to get him and father has no way to pick him up?

It is time both parents thought of the child and not themselves.

Can a mother in Florida move if she has had no court ordered and has never been married to the father of her kid?
You have the liberty to move anywhere from Florida withing the continental united states, as long as you are not currently charged with a felony by a court. The courts could decide if you can take the kid with you if the father is unwilling to let the claimant have custody. Marriage is in itself not… a hindrance in moving away from the spouse anyways. If you want to move outside the continental US you will have to apply with government of *area you want to move to*, if to another country, residency status or even citizenship is a must or you might get evicted or even sentenced as illegal alien, which is a serious crime in many countries. Especially in Europe and east Asia. Also if you are white, you are not allowed to move to Liberia, as it is reserved for black people only, no exceptions by decree by the Liberian government. (MORE)
Does the child have to live with the father if the mother dies if he doesn't want to if the parents were already divorced?
Yes, the father in this case is the legal guardian. If the child is a older teen another relative can petition for custody and the court would hear the teen out and could follow his wish.
The child's father should seek legal advise and have as many personal witnesses as possible as to how he treats his own children. It is not uncommon during an ugly separation or divorce for one or the other spouse to falsely accuse the other of mistreating their children and it's done mainly out of… getting back at the spouse at the child or children's expense.

Yes, men can take the kids from their mother if they get a divorce.You have to be able to provide them an better home and haveresources in order to do so. A judge makes this determination.
If the judge decides that your home is better for your childrenthan your wife's then you can take your kids if you are divorcingtheir mother. However, if you just take the kids without firstgetting a court order, you could be in serious legal trouble.
It depends on the jurisdiction. Many provide a standard amount that must be paid until the court declares otherwise. They cannot allow children to be destitute and without support just because the court hasn't finalized their ruling and the father is a jerk.
