Best Answer

If she is unwilling to agree to a custody modification, a motion will need to be filed with the courts, the situation will be evaluated and the court will render a decision. However, you must have compelling reasons for the court to order a change in custody.

The child will not have a choice in the matter, however he will be allowed to express an opinion in some courts.

Can i live with my mom even though my dad doesnt want me to. i am 16 and live in California?

You are required to live with the parent that your custody decree awarded custody to. It doesn't matter what you want. If your dad has custody and you run away to live with your mom instead, it's even possible your mom could go to jail for this. If you think you can convince a court that it's in your best interest to modify the custody decree and award your mother custody instead, then you can always get a lawyer to petition the court to revise the custody decree.

Can a child live with his father if the mother has parental responsibilty?

If a child's mother has sole custody then the courts have decided this and there is a reason for it. Generally, if the mother is a good mother (fit mother) then the children will be looked after by her with the father having partial custody to see his children. If the father is unfit, then the mother would have full custody. If you are the child asking the question and are upset because your mother has house rules and you don't always agree with them then this is not a good reason to want to live with your father. Your mother gives you these responsibilities so you will learn good characteristics that will make your life a whole lot simpler. You may not see that now, but will in the future. If this is the father asking the question and you have partial custody the courts have deemed it this way for a reason. If the mother is unfit and the father wants to take full custody then you should retain a lawyer asking for full custody.

If she is unwilling to mediate a custody modification, than a motion will need to be filed with the courts, the situation will be evaluated and the court will render a decision. However, you must have compelling reasons for the court to order a change in custody. The child will not have a choice in the matter, however he will be allowed to express an opinion in some courts. Tell him that until this is resolved by the courts, he is not to be unruly or disobey his mother. That will just cause you problems.

Father and mother never married children born in Florida father now lives in Georgia does he have to legitimize them in Georgia to have them come live with him?

If the children live with their mother in Florida and the father never established his paternity legally, a Georgia court would have no jurisdiction over the children. Their mother has sole legal custody. If the father wants to establish his "parental rights" he will need to establish his paternity where the children are domiciled. Once he has established that he is their father he can request joint custody or a visitation order and the mother can request a child support order if the children are to remain in her physical custody.If the parties want to make the change in custody by consent of the parties he should consult with an attorney to determine how that can be accomplished.If the children live with their mother in Florida and the father never established his paternity legally, a Georgia court would have no jurisdiction over the children.
