This depends on the state. I know in CA, NV, TX, UT for a fact (and most other states are the same way). You can NOT take a child out of state regardless if you have full custody or not. I have always had full custody of my daughter and her father was not in her life. I still could not move out of state without written consent by him or a judge's order. Although, it is VERY simple to get an order to move out of state. You only hav eto prove that it is in the child's best interest, which is simple to do. Make sure you are not doing this to spite the other parent. Let me know if you need more information. Good Luck.

They are two terms used interchangeably that essentially mean the same thing. Primary physical custody refers to the parent with whom the child resides with the majority of the time but, joint custody has been granted. Sometimes a parent may have primary physical custody but the other parent may have legal custody, meaning one parent shall have the right and the responsibility to make the decisions relating to the health, education, and welfare of a child." This parent can make all decisions without seeking in put from the other parent.

A custody order can only be granted by one court usually in the state where the child presently resides. Judges are very reluctant to grant joint custody when the parents live in separate states. The usual procedure is for one parent to be granted primary physical custody and both parents sharing joint legal custody. The parent not having primary custody would be responsible for making his or her travel arrangements and living accomodations (or that of the child depending on the age) during visitation unless there is a different agreement made with the primary custodial parent.

State laws vary widely in the United States but in almost every state the biological parent has sole rights to custody of the child. If a custodial parent dies the surviving natural parent will normally be granted custody of the child.

It means one parent is granted physical custody of the child the majority of time (in other words, your primary residence is with that parent). However one parent may have primary physical custody but joint legal custody where the other parent has equal decision making power in the child's life.

There are different types of custody: sole physical custody, where the child resides primarily with one parent but the non-custodial parent is typically awarded visitation rights, and sole legal custody, where one parent makes decisions in the child's life pertinent to their welfare. So, rights are delineated dependent upon the same.

Temporary custody yes, if the other parent, who's moving, has been granted permanent custody but has no place to live at the moment. If you are married and can't agree on custody you have to go to court and let the judge decide.

Non-parent custody is granted only under certain circumstances and through specific procedures. The rules vary by state, generally you must follow specific court procedures and provide clear proof that harm will come to the child if the non-parent custody is not granted. It is best to consult an attorney.

The custodial parent is the parent in which the child resides with. My son lives with me and I am the custodial parent, his dad has visitation rights and pays child support.

Whatever rights are granted by the custody order. If the custody order specifies "visitation", then you have to visit. It's not an "if you want to" thing, it's a "have to" thing.

In some states a petition can be filed by the primary custodian to amend the current custodial order. The usual procedure is to file a new custody suit/petition in the appropriate state court in the county where the petitioner resides. Judges are very reluctant to grant sole custody to one parent. It is generally granted only when the non custodial parent agrees to relinquish their parental rights or a parent is found guilty of abuse and/or neglect and/or endangerment.

Custody issues are decided in the state where the child resides. Therefore, if you file for custody, but the child lives in another state, your claim will have no grounds.

The parent who filed for custody is usually granted it, unless the judge feels it would be in the best interests of the child to rule otherwise.

There are three types of joint custody.Joint Legal Custody Similar to sole custody, whereby one parent still retains primary residential custody and control of the children.Joint Physical Custody Otherwise referred to as Split Custody, each parent has residential custody and control of the children 50% of the time.Bird Nest Custody The children remain in the family home and each parent resides there for a designated period of time, then switch.

Joint Legal: Both parents are suppose to have equal decision making rights, but child resides primarily with one parent while the other pays full child support. Joint Physical Custody: Parents have equal decision making rights and the child resides with each parent an equal amount of time.

Yes, being granted full custody does not relieve the other parent of their financial obligations to the child(ren).

If that parent has legal custody and the other parent doesn't they should not handle the matter alone. They should contact the authorities immediately and seek assistance in having the child returned safely. There are many other possible scenarios for which you need to consult with an attorney who specializes in custody issues.If that parent has legal custody and the other parent doesn't they should not handle the matter alone.

If they are the parent and they jabe custody, yes, that is one of their rights. If they have shared custody, an agreement must be made with all persons that have custody as well. If they are not the parent, then they have no right to take the child anywhere, unless that permission is explicitly granted to them by the parent or guardian.

Primary physical custody refers to the parent with whom the child resides with the majority of the time but, joint custody has been granted. Sole custody is when the child resides solely with the named parent giving that parent the legal right to make all decisions (medical, educational, etc.) concerning the child. Sole custody does not mean the non custodial parent can be denied the rights of parental visitation. • In my case, I have primary custody AND sole legal cstody. Being primary custody gives the father the right to make a decision in the event of an emergency, but that's about it. It basically means the father can see the child and take hher out of my home. But, because I have sole legal, he cannot make any decisions concerning anything religious, medical, educational, etc. Having sole legal gives me the right to get her a passport without his permission as well! Sole/Primary/Joint custody essentially just determines where the child lives and who the main care-taker is. It is "legal custody" that determines the right to make decisions.
