At age 14, according to the laws in Georgia, a child may choose which parent to live with. There are other factors involved, health, education, etc. The issue has to be dicussed with a lawyer and a petition made to the court. If the judge agrees, then the custody agreement is amended and custody changes.

Yes. A Child Called It did have a dad.

because they had little money and their dad moved out and left them behined

Yes. If they want to make it on their own or with Dad, to stop them from benefiting financially for "running away" to Dad's or whetever, you make them file emancipation with the court. That way you're not responsible for them anymore and Dad can't make you pay him child support.

Biologically a child can only have one dad.Legally a child can only have one dad.Socially a child can only have one real dad but it is acceptable for a child to also have a step dad, foster dad or other male carer while growing up provided that this male figure cares for the child and will be around on a long term basis.

Dad has gone away when I was just a child

well for Califonia specificly I don't know but when my parents got divorced I was told I could decide when I was 14 but if you want to move in with a parent who say no you cant for example I wanted to move in with my dad he said no so I couldn't but If lets say you want to move in with your dad and your mom says no but your dad says its ok then you still can move in with your dad. You still have to go through the court system to make it official.

idk but im from Georgia and its 14.because i picked to live with my dad when i was 14

That depends on state law where you reside. Consult an attorney for more information.

child supportYES he will have to pay child support if the child is his.even though he may want a DNA test to make sure he is the dad especially not knowing he had a child.if he was seseved with legal papers his name should be on the birth certificate or some kindof informatin saying he is the legal dad. GOOD Luck

Yes she knew her dad. They lived in Douglas Georgia. She is my aunt.

It depends on the state you live in and what the laws are that govern that state. In most cases, the child can not just live with one parent, because the custody belongs to the other parent. That child can wait until the age of 18, to move-in with the other parent or that child can ask the court to move with the other parent.

When your wife has a child or when you get married to a woman who has already had a child.

no you should never have to pay for a child that is not yours i know as i am a child with a dad overseas and my sisters have a different dad and he does not have to pay for them

A dad or daddy is a male who either fathered a child or is a guardian of the child. In this role, a dad is supposed to protect, care for, and provide for the health and well-being of the child. A dad should be trustworthy, reliable, honest, loving, and responsible for the child/children he fathers.

If you are an adult, you can live anywhere you want. If you are a minor child, it depends. Georgia uses the best interest of the child standard to determine custody and visitation. If the father has been convicted of a crime that is sexual in nature, it is unlikely that a court is going to find that it is in the best interest of the child for the child to be placed with that parent over the mother. However, there are circumstances where the mother is completely unfit or unavailable, and the state finds that the father is fit and able to care for the child.

There has to be a reason the child hates the just have to sit down with that chils and talk about what happened..

Elizabeth Gillies child is adopted.

This would depend on a lot of factors. What the mother makes, if she has partial custody, how much the father makes. All this should be decided in court. The father can of course take the mother to court and sue for child support, but it would be up to a judge if you get it.

Michael is Blanket's dad, that child is like a mini version of him.

Honestly, I think the dad SHOULD pay child support even though I don't!!!

Child shares the same parent, but the other parent is different. such as Child has same mom different dad, and other child has same mom different dad
