Can a fifteen year old leave town to visit their father without permission from their legal guardian?
It depends. If your father has part custody of you... then it'd be accepted more than if your legal guardian had full custody over you. My parents have joined custody so when I have arguments with my mom, if I call my dad and he's in the same state, he'll come get me in a heartbeat. But if your father doesn't have joined custody, or even less custody than your legal guardian, he can get…

For example, a Stanford study of 1,000 divorced couples selected at random found that divorcing mothers were awarded sole custody four times as often as divorcing fathers in contested custody cases.

If a Father who has full custody over his daughter dies is the daughters step-mom allowed to keep her or will the original mother regain custody?
Yes, until a decision is made otherwise by the court. This issue is very common with separated fathers. In 20 years of working with fathers, I've also seen many cases of the children being Willed to boyfriends, friends, or relatives.

If a 13 year old wants to live with her fathers ex girlfriend to have custody of her is that possible?
Anything is possible. If both parents agree, then custody may be signed over civilly without involving the court in many states. If the parents object, it would have to go before a judge. The judge would listen to reasons why, what all the parties think, and determine what they feel is in the child's best interest. If the parents will not willingly give up custody and the child is not in a dire situation, the…

Generally joint custody means both parents have equal rights to decisions concerning the child. However, the actual terms would be in the custody agreement. Therefore, it may be allowable for a parent to take certain actions w/o the consent of the other parent. You might wish to read over the terms of the custody agreement or consult with the attorney who handled the case for more specific information. A permanent move would likely require court…
I can't, no. Whether or not you can depends on the custody order and the laws where you reside. If you have sole legal and physical custody, it would be easier than if the father has retained any of his rights under each and even then, it would require a court order. If the father has any rights, he would be notified, and given a specific period of time to file an objection. Whether he…
