Does the non custodial parent have the right to move within the state and not tell the custodial parent the address and phone number?

Generally the noncustodial parent may move anywhere - within or outside the state where the children live. The court grants the noncustodial parent the right to visit the children but does not force the noncustodial parent to take advantage of that right. However, a court may require the noncustodial parent to provide the custodial parent with contact information and, where issues develop about the care or safety of the children, the court may require supervised visitation or at least that the noncustodial parent advise the custodial parent where the children will be.

What rights does a noncustodial parent have to a child?

The child has a right to see the parent if she wishes. The wishes of the child should be of paramount importance. Unless there are certain court orders in place (restraining order, protection from abuse order, divorce decree or Parental Rights and Responsibilities) or if the noncustodial parent has a criminal record for a sexual offense, the noncustodial parent does have rights. However the things they do should be with consideration for the child and custodial parent in mind.AnswerUnless they have been determined to be unfit the non-custodial parent has the right to request a visitation order from the court with jurisdiction over the case. Once the visitation order has been established the non-custodial parent has the right to enforce that visitation order, exactly as stated in the order, unless it is modified by the court. The non-custodial parent has the right to be informed about important aspects of the child's life such as medical conditions and treatments, school attendance and school functions, sports programs, etc.

Does the noncustodial parent have to notify the custodial parent if they go on vacation with the children out of state and have the children miss school days?

The non-custodial parent must notify the custodial parent of their intentions and the destination of their vacation. The custodial parent has the right to know where the child will be. Also, it is unlikely the visitation order provides that the non-custodial parent can keep the child out of school for a vacation. They would have no automatic right to do so. They would need the consent and cooperation of the custodial parent.

Do you have the right as a noncustodial parent to put your child up for adoption?

Not without the other parent agreeing to the relinquishment of his or her parental rights as well. Any parent can file for the voluntary termination of parental rights. It is the judge's decision whether it will be granted, and if so, to what extent. A TPR is not a legal instrument to be used as a way for a parent to be relieved of their responsibilities to their minor child or children.

Can a 14 year old choose to live with the noncustodial parent if the custodial parent is abusive in Florida?

See related question, but you do not want to complain to family services, as the child will simply be put into foster care, than returned to the custodial parent. In less than 15% of the cases do they give the child to the other parent. The other parent will need to collect evidence and file a custody challenge. The child has the right to an opinion, but not to choose.

How is child support affected when a child doesnt want to visit a noncustodial parent?

Can a 18 year old high school graduate move in with grandma for 4 months and then in with noncustodial parent and than that parent puts him in January 2008 college get custody and child support?

Being 18 makes you an adult and with that privilege gives you the right to make your own adult decisions you can move in with who you want. And no one not even the custodial parent can keep you from making your own mind up. You are free to make your own decisions. As far as Child support in most states that is discontinued once the child reaches the age of 18 unless there are back child support due by the noncustodial parent. Once you reach a certain age custody is no longer an issue the child can make his or hers choice on which parent they chose to live with.

If your child runaway from custodial home and is a minor because she doesn't want to follow rules then the noncustodial parent is off the hook for paying child support to the custodial parent right?

That's an interpretive item meant for a judge. At the minimum, the separated parent should file an emergency motion to modify custody of a child in need of care. You can never stop paying the support without the approval of the court. see link

What age in South Carolina does a child have the legal right to choose NOT to visit the noncustodial parent?

18 is the age at which the child gets to decide. Until then if the non-custodial parent has court-ordered visitation, it must be followed. If there's a valid reason the child does not want to visit the non-custodial parent, then the custodial parent can go to order and request that the court modify the visitation order. But be aware that the court will not do that without a very valid reason.

Does the noncustodial parent have to provide medical coverage if the child already has medical coverage through the custodial parent?

They have to if it is so ordered by the court. However, the non-custodial parent has the right to petition the court to remove that provision. If the court finds it would be in the best interests of the child to do so, a modification may be permitted. If both parents have health coverage, generally the courts will mandate the parent with the more comprehensive policy maintain insurance on their minor child or children.
