Does being a battered wife make you unfit to be a parent to your two children or is a batterer unfit to be a parent?

The answer seems rather obvious (to me anyway). There is no reason to believe that the batterer would not vent their anger and abuse on the children. Being a battered wife is nothing shameful nor does it make you a bad parent. I believe you would benefit from counseling to help you resolve any issues you may have, from being in an abusive relationship. Good Luck

I have to warn you here - this happened to me.

My ex abused me horribly for 6 years (phys, emotional & sexual abuse). When I had courage enough to leave him, I had to seek counseling to help me get over the abuse and on with my life. He sued saying I was unstable (due to the counseling) and atually WON! Now he has my kids and neglects them completely (no coats, holes in shoes, doesnt care about school problems, etc..)as well as uses them to continue to abuse me emotionally. Ive gone broke between child support ($1200/mth) and legal fees and my kids are suffering and I dont even have any way to help them (Lord knows Im trying). BTW, DSS is useless.

So please please dont take it for granted that an abuser WONT get custody. They are a manipulative breed indeed and can and do use the situation to hurt you. Please dont let this happen to you or your kids.

The Census no longer divides children in a single parent household to to divorce from those where the parents were never married, due to the stigma being considered illegitimate. That said, as of 2000, 26.7% of children are living in single parent households.

Yes and no. If the biological parent is proven unfit to care for they're children then the step parent has the right to APPLY for custody of his/her step children. Keep in mind that being married to the biological parent doesn't automatically make them the parent of the children nor does it make them they're legal guardian so there are no guarantees that the step parent will be given custody. If the children are happy with the step parent and no one in the biological parents family protest the application and the step parent is proven fit to care for the child(ren) then most usually the courts will award the step parent custody.

The pace did not relent, with boats being battered even on the good lines.

Courts can enforce child support orders. But, they cannot "force" a parent to have a relationship with a child(ren). It is reasonable to assume that if a parent has to be "dragged" into a relationship with their children, it would not be a pleasant experience for anyone. Children should know they are loved and wanted as opposed to being a burden.

Maybe, if the absent parent does not share custody in any manner and there is not a visitation order in place, a custodial parent can take whatever action he or she chooses in regards to a minor child. However, courts do not look favorably upon any parent who does not allow the other parent to have a relationship with his or her minor child/children unless there is substantiated reasons (child abuse, endangerment, etc.) for the action. A parent who is being denied access to his or her child/children can file suit for visitation and/or custodial rights if they so choose.

Being married or unmarried is not much of a determining factor when it comes to custody nowadays. In order to have custody changed you would need to prove that either your household and parenting abilities are substantially better than the other parent, or that their situation is detrimental to the children. Having a spouse does not necessarily mean that you are better able to care for the children, especially if the other parent has had custody for a significant length of time without the children having any problems in a single parent household.

Yes. If they are travelling with just 1 parent they usually also need a letter from the other parent saying they are aware their child is being taken out of the country.

I'm not a lawyer but i believe the answer is YES. Many children feel unprotected by the non-abusive parent, even when the abuse is occurring within a traditional 'nuclear' family. A biological parent has a responsiblity to protect their children. If their children are being abused by their partner they are responsible for putting a stop to it. If it is allowed to continue it becomes abuse 'by proxy' In the best case it's still neglect, which is also a form of abuse.

You need to supply more details. Some possibilities:One parent has no right at all the "keep" the children from the other parent.If the children need protection from the other parent you need to obtain a court order.If the couple is not divorced then one party, probably the one who is being kept away from having the children, must apply for a court ordered visitation schedule.If you're divorced, you need to review the court order. It must be followed.

absolutely, taking children on a holiday is part of being a parent and has nothing to do with childsupport.

Not necessarily, some children cannot communicate or are suffering from post-traumatic stress. Any children in which these do not apply to will be expected to answer some questions.

Yes. Leaving children unsupervised is considered child endangerment regardless of who has "full custody". That could lead to the parent being deemed unfit and they could lose custody.

The situation should be reported to the child protective services. The parent may need help and they need to be informed about child endangerment. Leaving small children under the care and supervision of a child is considered child endangerment in most jurisdictions and can result in the parent being declared unfit.The situation should be reported to the child protective services.

As a general rule no. Children are generally not responsible for a living parents debt. Though if you have a joint checking with that parent the money in the account whether yours or there's is subject to being seized as if it was all there's by creditors. Also if you have ever cosigned for a parent you would be subject to repayment of the debt if your parent defaults.
