What if the mother lives in one state from the father and refuses to let him see the child and he has other persons calling him and telling him she is mentally unfit to raise the child?
If you don't have joint custody then the only thing you can do is call Child Aid (or Child Welfare) and report this giving the names of the people telling you how unfit your wife is to raise this child. EVERY report of a child that is unsafe in any situation of their environment is investigated. No names will be given to your wife (confidential.) When you phone Child Welfare please keep notes!!! This is very important. Put down dates you called them, who you talked too (get their name) and what the conversation was about. If you don't find Child Welfare is cooperating with you enough and leaving you without answers then you should go to the State your wife is in and see them face to face. I don't know who these people are giving you this information, but be careful. Your wife could be perfectly fit as a mother and others have their opinions of what an unfit mother is. Nonetheless this needs to be investigated for the child's sake.

What rights does a father have when he pays child support and the mother does not let him see the child?
Answer . Regardless of whether child support has been paid, the NCP has the right to visitation as it is designated in the custody agreement, even if the custodial parent …has "sole custody".. The father should refer to his custody order for the child(ren). Depending on the division of custody, the noncustodial parent's (NCP) can vary, but it most always is spelled out, such as just as an example- Father shall have every other weekend starting at 6pm to Sunday at 6pm and the following holidays: etc. etc..:. The NCP (father in this situation) can take the issue to court to petition against the CP (mother here) for withholding visitation. In this situation, the NCP should continue to pay the child support faithfully and punctually as while this is NOT suppose to factor into visitation, it does look good when standing in front of the judge.
You need to talk to a lawyer to hammer this out. Theoretically you can be required to pay child support but also not have visitation rights; it depends on the custody arrangem…ent you have with the child's mother. If you don't have a custody arrangement, then the lawyer can help you set one up.
because if he didn't pay it, he could serve jail time and because it is the right thing to do. If there was a need for more visitation, the father need only petition the court….
That one is difficult..... It really depends on the state you live in. My best advise to you is to document everything : dates, times, places, of any type of neglect or abuse!…!!!! Don't forget, if you suspect that the child is in danger, you can go to your local Department of Social Services, and file a case with Child Protective Services. Best of luck.... :)
Does a father that was ruled unfit by a judge due to a juvenile charge have any visitation rights after the mother signed over her rights to her parents and they have not let father meet or see child?
That would vary from state to state, and court to court. You would need to contact your state child welfare department, and perhaps an attorney.
Yes, unless he has been to court and has a order of visitation.
If you are biologically the father of the baby and have not custody charges against you, no matter what her family says, you are allowed to see your child whenever you want. A…nd just because you're a teen doesn't restrict you from seeing your child.\nCongrats on who ever the daddy is!
If a Judge tells a mother to get help for her mental illness before she can see her child why would a mother refuse?
Likely because she doesn't want to admit she has a problem that makes her unfit to see her daughter. She may also have a fear of getting help, or some other issue with the sit…uation.
Dad needs to go to court and get an order for visitation rights asap!!!
If he has partial or shared custody, or if he has been granted visitation rights, she is breaking the law. He should consult his lawyer and have the suit pressed in court. If …he has no parental rights whatsoever, then too bad for him.
Answer Visit your local family court and ask to speak with an advocate. The father has no legal right to keep the children from you unless you have been deemed unfit. Unwed m…others have custody until a custody order has been issued by the court once the father has established his paternity. Married parents have equal parental rights. The court will issue an order that addresses custody, visitation and child support as part of a divorce decree.
What is it called when a mother and father and their child live together with no other relatives in the home?
If the child wants to live with his father can the mother refuse and put that child with someone other than the parent?
Only Indiana and Texas has laws setting out a specific age at which a child can make a choice the court is required to abide by, and even than there are some limitations. …With those states, it is age 14. In all other states, the general rule of thumb is that a 12 year old can express and opinion, however the judge is under not legal obligation to consider, or even hear it. In either case, a motion to the court must be filed for a determination to be made. However, the child should be informed that there are alternatives to choosing to live with just one parent. The child should also be advised they can express a choice that they remain in one home and each parent can live with them for a designated period of time, than switch.

Yes. The father has no right to go to a personal doctors appointment.
The two concepts are not related. Payment of child support is a financial responsibility. It does not depend on whether you see your children or not.
If the mother have visitation right granted by the court the father can not stop her from seeing her child. If he does she can get help from the police and also report him bac…k to the court so they know he broke the court order.
