He will not get custody, but he can get supervised visitation.
Have a lawyer help you make visitation rules.
he was involved in an abusive relationship with his biological father Dwayne Michael Turner
You are in charge of your own children! You have to set the rules and talk to the grandmother about her abusive ways with your children and if she refuses to listen to you then you need to protect your children by taking them out of that environment and telling the grandmother she can come visit on your terms and if she doesn't agree to that then she can't see her grandchildren at all. Please take into consideration (depending on the age of grandmother) if she is elderly that medications can change a person's personality or Alzheimer's or it's partner Dementia can be setting in. In this case you will have to try a different way to take the children out of this destructive environment, yet be there when the grandmother comes to visit them to protect your children against her verbal abuse. If matters get worse and the children are very young you will have to make the difficult choice of keeping the grandmother away from them.
Hayley's ex-stepfather was verbally abusive. Her biological father is not abusive. I really hope this isn't true! if i is, poor hayley :(
A grandparent can petition the court directly for an order establishing reasonable rights of visitation between the grandparent and grandchild to get full custody you would need to prove they are abusive and that the child is in eminent danger.
I dont personally know but you can try and seek supervised visitation, I may sson be looking this up due to my disgusting Mother-In-Law
If there is a court order for visitation it has to be followed until the child turns 18. If there is a legitimate reason the child does not want to visit (ie the parent is a drug user, is abusive, etc), then the custodial parent needs to go back to court and request that the visitation order be modified.
In a situation such as this, the custodial parent should oppose visitation or, if that fails, ask for supervised visitation.
You should be able to ask the judge who presided over the divorce, or if there is a caseworker assigned to the family, that would be a better place to start. * A sixteen-year-old does not have that right automatically. Legally, the father still has the right to his visitation time. If a father is emotionally or physically abusive, the mother or an attorney acting on behalf of the child may petition the court for a change in the custoday order. * No, minors are not allowed to make such decisions when there is a visitation order in place. Generally the law does not address issues of alledged emotional or verbal abuse as there is such a wide definition of such behavior. The custodial parent can petition for a change in the visitation rights of the non custodial parent, but rarely will visitation be suspended under the cited circumstances, however, supervised visitation might be an option.
One thing I do know is that visitation and support are two separate issues. Whether or not you utilize your visitation rights, does not mean whether or not you pay child support. So in my opinion, no, you don't have to visit...but you still must pay support...and on another note...do you think that maybe your influence might help your child with whatever is making him/her abusive? And maybe your lack of influence might hurt him/her? I am very pro-involvement as far as parents go. Please try to solve the problem by means other than abandonment.
This could be considered interference and abusive, but the issue will need to be raised with the courts.
Yes. The grandparent will need to go through the proper legal channels, but if he or she can prove that the biological parent is abusive and unfit to be the child's guardian, they can win custody.
Get a restraining order against him....pack up the kids and move out. If you don't want to move, when he's gone, change the locks, get the restraining order and report his abuse to the police. OR...look in your yellow pages and find a local women's shelter to help you. The department of Children and Families should be able to help also.
Can a 16 yr old move out of an abusive home where he lives with step dad because him and his biological mother have no relations due to a ugly divorce and move to his biological grandparents in alberta
You can appeal to a judge to order him to pay child support, but not see the kids because he is abusive. If you are awarded full custody, then you can do what you want. Child support, custody and visitation rights are akk different issues. A parent does not have the legal right to decide who retains custody of a child, if the non-custodial parent may have visitation rights, if child support should be awarded and what amount of support should be paid. Such issues are determined by a judge in accordance with the laws of the state where the child(ren) resides. Both biological parents are given the opportunity to present their case and submit supporting evidence pertaining to all the previously cited issues.
I would let someone know that you are being abused when you visit your father. Perhaps his visitation with you can be supervised so you will not be hurt from him. Let your mother know this is occurring and she can have it supervised.
It sounds as if you need to have more respect for your Grandmother! If your Grandmother threw a shoe at you then you probably were being disrespectful to her. Abusive behavior is: Slapping you across the face; twisting your arm; punching; kicking; hitting; scratching. It would be wise of you to think about what you said to your grandmother and if you were being disrespectful towards her you need to apologize to her and start maturing!
YOU cannot deny any custody or visitation. Only the court can make an enforceable decision regarding these matters. State laws vary. If physical abuse is the case, the custodial parent will need a record of the abuse and should call the police, take pictures to record the effects, and try to have dis-interested witnesses present at the time of any contact between the parents. If there is no abuse to the children, or no abuse in the presence of the children, it is unlikely to make any change in the court decision for joint custody. It may compel the court to make some order for supervised exchange of the children for visitation. Only the court can make any decision, especially regarding custody. If the non-custodial parent is abusive to the children it may be very good grounds for a sole custody arrangement. It may also encourage the court to provide for supervised visitation. Visitation is a different issue than custody. Visitation is the means for the non-custodial parent to have a relationship with the children and build that relationship. A court generally regards this as semi-sacred. A custodial parent should NOT deny visitation. If it is necessary to curtail visitation for the real safety of the children, the custodial parent should immediately file a request for a change of visitation. Otherwise, a court may frown on a parent who denies visitation. In some states, continual denial of visitation can be grounds for a change of custody.
It is important to exit an abusive relationship carefully. Slavery is abusive.
It's possible that if you file for child support he will file for visitation - assuming he isn't neglectful or abusive, visitation is his right as one of the parents of the child.
The courts might give him visiting rights, but they can be restricted - supervised visitation, visitation in public places only, etc. The alternative is far worse see link below
Yes, but usually if it's physical abuse it doesn't happen as often with grandchildren because the parents are usually around and also, when parents bring up their own children their patience often grows thin, but when grandchildren come along they seem to have more patience (perhaps because they aren't around them 24/7 and they go home eventually.) If grandparents were abusive to their own children then I would hesitate to leave children with them. If it was sexual abuse then this never goes away! Don't leave children when anyone in the family that has sexually abused children even if their mate is with them or other family members. Most children that are sexually abused are by a father, grandfather or a close relative. In some cases women can sexually abuse males in the family.
If the reference is to the mother, than visitation should be modified to supervised, than yes.
