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 coast was battered by the cyclone." or "The coast is being battered by the cyclone."
Termination of parental rights. The child then becomes a ward of the state.

To be honest, I think Gerber markets more to parents by advertising on children's programming that parent's may be watching with their children. Gerber markets products that are for children at an age where a parent is more likely to be present during the advertisement being they are toddlers requiring supervision.
It depends on who is being described. If there is one parent, it is parent's: the parent's car was parked outside. When describing several parents, it is parents': the parents' children were playing on the field.
i don't think so
One of a parent's most enjoyable pleasures is to live long enough to become an embarrassment to their child, just as their parents embarrassed them when they were children.

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, but not without a court approved long distance visitation schedule being established first. see link
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.
The pace did not relent, with boats being battered even on the good lines.
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 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.
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.
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.
The father of Danae was Acrisius, her mother being either Eurydice or Aganippe. No other children are named for either parent.
no, only the parent of a child under 18 can be sued, being they are responsible for that child's action until the age of adulthood.

I assume he's being denied access?
absolutely, taking children on a holiday is part of being a parent and has nothing to do with childsupport.
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.
