Best Answer

When they reach the age of majority which is 18, or when a court rules otherwise. A minor child nor a custodial parent are not allowed to arbitrarily stop or change visitation schedules unless the other custodial parent agrees or unless there is "just cause' such as the child being ill. To change a visitation order the parent who believes there is a problem must file a motion of modification in the proper court of jurisdiction. Any parent who does not obey a court ordered custody agreement can be cited for contempt and experience other legal difficulties.

When would a judge in Arkansas give the non married father custody of a baby?

In Arkansas custody is assigned to an unmarried mother unless there is reason to give custody to another person. A father may get custody if he is determined to be a fit parent and he is able to show the court that it's in the child's best interest to remove the child from the mother's custody and award custody to him. He would need to show some degree of unfitness on the mother's part that would compel the court to make the change.You can read more about child custody in Arkansas at the related link.

It depends on the laws in your jurisdiction. Generally, in the United States, if your parents can't make an agreement about custody the judge would have to decide. In some states the court will listen to your wishes but are in no way obligated to follow them. Your father may get shared custody and a visitation order. You can not decide fully who to live with until you are 18 years old.

Can a father get joint custody of an infant if he abuses drugs in Texas?

If it can be proven that the father is a drug abuser, that would not bode favorably for him. However an accusation is just that. It does not constitute proof. It would have to be proven and the judge would then decide whether or not joint custody under those circumstances would be in the best interests of the child.
