There is no way the legal father won't get custody if you die first. Unless it can be proven by your mother that the child is living in physical, mental, or emotional abuse. Or the father signs all his rights away to you before you die.

It is my understanding that if a Father has supervised or restricted parenting time, then you can either request the Court or make an agreement between the parties that your parents or a designated temporary custodian be appointed in the event of your untimely death. Then, the Court can later decide who the child(ren) should be with. I know that there is a law in Indiana on this. I'm not sure about other states. Also, I'm sure that the Father would be able to fight this if he wanted.

• Essentially, the only way to have a chance at this, is if you have a will stating you want care to go to your parents instead of the father. A will is a legal document that must be followed. The father could fight this, but he would find it difficult and excessively expensive. I got that info from my lawyer.

If a father has sole legal and physical custody of his thirteen year old daughter can the daughter become emancipated from her mother in the state of Pennsylvania?

You cannot become emancipated from just one parent. And no state will even consider emancipating a 13-year-old. I'm guessing this is not really an emancipation issue, but instead a custody/visitation issue, which is a very different thing.

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 you choose to live with your mother instead of your grandparents who now have custody?

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.

I have a 15 year old son that I have custody of and I am suppost to claim every year. My x-husband claimed him on his taxes!He has custody of our daughter and he claims here every year. What can I do or suppost to do about this?

What you need to do from now on is if you believe you are entitled to claim your 15 year old son, then on your next tax return you claim him, then instead of e-filing your return, you US mail your return in to the IRS. It will take longer to get your money, but by mailing it in you can challenge your x-husband in IRS court.

Talk to your mother about reopening the custody portion of their divorce case. Find out what the reasons she is sharing custody are - there may be aspects of the agreement that you are not aware of. Let her know your concerns about your schoolwork.If you want your mother to have full custody of you, you will need to discuss it with your parents, a lawyer and a judge. If your dad is forcing you to do sports instead of school work and your grades are dropping, the custody may be adjusted.
