By petitioning the court to give joint custody to the parents. In most state, Joint Legal Custody is the standard. If you mean Joint Physical Custody, with 50/50 Custody, this is more complicated, requiring preparation similar to petitioning for full custody.
no you can move out of state if you have joint custody.
Joint legal or physical. see links
A custody order can only be granted by one court usually in the state where the child presently resides. Judges are very reluctant to grant joint custody when the parents live in separate states. The usual procedure is for one parent to be granted primary physical custody and both parents sharing joint legal custody. The parent not having primary custody would be responsible for making his or her travel arrangements and living accomodations (or that of the child depending on the age) during visitation unless there is a different agreement made with the primary custodial parent.
Child support is determined according to state guidelines and physical custody is one of the factors used to determine the amount.
Most states lean toward Joint Legal Custody with primary residential custody
No, you cannot move a child out of state if you have joint custody.
Yes, see links below
Not without a change in the orders, but Joint Physical cannot be applied either.
The guidelines are basically the same in every state but obviously there are a few minor differences. Joint custody consists of Primary Custody & Secondary Custody. The parent with primary custody is who the child lives with & the other parent has secondary custody. Depending on the age of the child & the state in which they reside, the court may let them determine where they choose to live. Or if both parents agree on the child's decision then the child can live with either parent.
It will be very dificult for the father to have joint legal and physical custody on the gounds that he is not avalible. The courts want the two parents to live in the same area to co-parent. He could if he moved back.
The term "primary joint custody" is contradictory. Primary (or sole) custody means one parent has full rights of decision as to the care of the child, including education, medical treatment, etc. Joint custody means parents share equal rights in major decisions such as moving the child to another state or country. One parent cannot legally take such action without the other's consent or without permission of the court.
Can a father who has joint custody with the mother stop her from visiting another state with the child
If the mother has legal custody but leaves the state and doesn't have physical custody of your child then that must mean the child is with someone who doesn't have custody. I assume you are not married. In that case, you must establish your paternity in court and request legal and physical custody. If the mother has left the state without taking her child with her the court will certainly want to know who the child is with and will certainly consider awarding legal custody to the other biological parent, you.Perhaps you can convince the mother to consent to your getting legal and physical custody. If not sole custody, then joint legal and physical custody.You should consult with an attorneywho specializes in custody issues. The attorney can review your situation and explain your rights and options.
If you have primary physical custody you are entitled to support. How much support is figured in a formula based on how much money each of you makes and how many days (or overnights) each of you has time with the child. Depending on the state, if the child stays with the other parent over a certain set amount of time, then that parent is responsible to pay less child support. Most states are trying to push joint physical custody where the child spends 1/2 to 2/3 of the time with the primary caretaker and the rest with the other parent.
Yes if the father has joint custody he may leave the state with the child for a short period for purposes of a vacation.
No, you can not, unless the custody order is modified by the court.
The parent with physical custody receives child support from the other parent. If the parties have shared custody the court will use state guidelines to determine if someone pays child support and how much.
A Motion for Custody has to be filed whether it be Joint Legal, Joint Physical, or Bird Nest Custody. In all, the father has to be prepared to deal with the same challenges as he would attempting a Full Custody of his child(ren). Joint Legal Custody is pretty much the standard in most every American State, but Joint Physical is more difficult. Bird Nest Custody requires almost unprecedented cooperation and commitment to the children.Please note in this regard, James Cook, the founder of the Joint Custody Association, and original Joint Custody Legislation author, passed away in Los Angeles, CA on March 28, 2009.
