Can one parent of the two sharing custody of a minor child legally keep the child from the other parent pending a DSS claim?
That would depend on why social services is investigating. If it is neglect, abuse or something of that nature suspected on the part of the other parent. Then you probably co…uld justify not allowing that parent their visitation, or supervise it. However, the custody agreement is binding unless a petition to modify is made, and approved by the court. I would think if the child were in any way endangered or? DSS would already have taken action to prevent the parent from having unsupervised visits.
How do you stop child support if the non-custodial parent wants nothing to do with the child but refuses to waive their parental rights so your spouse can adopt the child?
Answer File suit to have the support order rescinded. However, child support and parental rights are two entirely different issues and a parent …cannot be forced to relinquish his or her rights to their biological child. Voluntarily requesting child support termination does not affect the non custodial parent's custodial or visitation rights. The court will only terminate parental rights in cases of documented neglect and/or abuse, and sometimes not even then. In some instances rather than terminating rights supervised visitation will be ordered.
What rights does a non custodial parent have that has no legal right to the child If the child does not want to return home to the custodial parent that has sole custody Child is 17 Senior in a dif st?
Answer Answer If you have a good parenting relationship with the ex, discuss the issue with them. You'll need to be certain that the child is not using this… as a way to avoid reasonable issues (curfew, schooling, household responsibilities) at his current residence. Set the same expectations. Many states will allow a child over 12 or 13 to choose one home over the other, but you will have to go to court, if you cannot get an agreement from the custodial parent. Don't forget to get some document of your having rights to sign for schooling, medical and so on, and to provide insurance and other of the child's needs. Child support won't automatically be the same, either.
When the custodial parent passes away and the non custodial parent becomes the custodial parent does the minor child have a say where he wants to live?
No, the minor child must live with the custodial parent who decides where they will live.
yes. my family is currently going through this problem. but if he or she has visitation rights neither parent cam move over the state line. im only 14 i know alot about …this stuff.
When both parents have joint legal and primary custodial parent leaves the child with the non-custodial in another state is this child abandonment?

The non-custodial parent can file for custody.
File what? If you are speaking of a court filing, either parent. If you are speaking of taxes the custodial parent has the right to file the child as a dependent. The custodia…l parent can allow the non-custodial parent the right if they want to.
What is the legal age in Tn that a child can leave the custodial parent for the non-custodial parent?

How can a parent non-costodial parent contact a minor in the custody of the custodial parent when the minor child wants to change his choice of residency?
You don't have the right to contact your child? If you don't, you can file a motion for an order of visitation in the court with jurisdiction (where the child legally resides)….
Does a custodial parent have to notify the noncustodial parent when they leave the country with child?
Yes. Minors are required to obtain a passport when leaving the U.S. Both parents have to sign the application for a passport. If the noncustodial parent cannot be present when… the application is made he or she must submit a notarized statement of permission. The exception is if the parent requesting the passport has sole legal custody, if that is the case he or she must present the court order of custody. All documents must be original or legal copies of the original with the embossed seal of the court and/or government agency. In the case of 16-17 year olds, they must appear in person at the time of application with the required documentation.
That depends on where you live. In the USA, a child may make that decision when they reach the age of majority (18 in most states but can be as high as 21). You would need to …supply your state of residence (or country, if outside the USA) for an informed answer and more information.
yes, he\\she should seek for permission from the parent.
Yes, if the relationship breaks down and one leave they still have a chance for custody depending on the circumstances and how long they are gone etc.
