Yes. With joint custody either parent can change the kids school or any major desicion. The ideal relationship you would both agree on this but reality is always different.

I suggest you return to court to get sole custody and an order for support, if there isn't already one in place.

when joint custody is in place both parents have the same rights. unless stipulated in court records. Joint means both so when ever the other parent is suppose to have visitation with the child the child / children must go. review documents that grant Joint custody.

You can pick your child up from school if you have joint legal custody. However, picking a child up after school is not something that can be left to chance. It should be arranged by agreement between the parents. You should be discussing this issue with the other parent. You should not be thinking of stopping by the school unannounced to pick the child up when there is a usual routine in place. Any time the usual routine will be modified the other parent, the child and the school should be notified in advance.

If you are a parent and going through the process of a marriage dissolution, or if you are just a parent that has a child with someone you are not in a relationship with, you may want to make sure you understand the different forms of child custody. Each is different and includes different rights as the parent of the child.Sole CustodyIf one parent has custody of the child, this is defined as sole custody. Occasionally courts award sole custody to a single parent if the other is considered to be unfit by drugs or alcohol or issues with child abuse or neglect. Even if the court awards sole custody however, it is not uncommon for the court to also award joint legal custody which means that even though the child resides with one parent, both are required in making decisions regarding the child. In this case, the noncustodial parent has a visitation schedule instead of joint physical custody.Joint Child CustodyJoint custody is also referred to as shared custody and occurs when parents are not together and not living together. Joint child custody usually requires parents to agree upon a schedule for the child and when the child will spend time with each parent. This time also dictates where the holidays, school time, and vacation time is spent, often with it being split between both homes of the parents. Becoming increasingly popular is โ€œbirdโ€™s nest custodyโ€ in which the parents actually take turns leaving the home and the children stay in one place full time.Sole or Joint Physical CustodyThis form of custody spells out whether one parent or both have the right to have the children live with him or her. Sole physical custody means the child lives with one parent full time while joint physical custody would mean that the child or children lives and spends a certain amount of time with both parents. It is important to note that sole physical custody does not mean the child will not have visitation with the other parent. It simply designates where the child will live.Sole or Joint Legal CustodyLegal custody designates who will make the decisions regarding the upbringing of the children. This may mean anything from deciding the religion to medical care. It is common in most states for parents to share and make the decisions together which results in joint legal custody.It is important when dealing with the custody of a child that you are aware of the different forms of child custody that are available. If you are unsure you should contact a family law attorney.

this depends on how far the move is taking place, it is best to go through the family court to find out what rights you have regarding a move.

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.

Since you haven't included any details the following is general information. The parent needs to rectify the circumstances that resulted in their losing custody in the first place if custody was taken away by a court. If the parent voluntarily consented to the change in custody they can petition the same court to end that guardianship and restore custody in the parent.

It is not in the best interest of the child to be in the custody of a parent who violates the law. They exhibit poor judgment and could place the child in danger.It is not in the best interest of the child to be in the custody of a parent who violates the law.

State of WA - for a vacation, sure. You need to notify the other parent of the place and duration. For good? That would be considered kidnapping.

And International Law. You can file for custody, but only Cuba actively enforces foreign custody orders for fathers. You can file a motion to place child support on hold, but that means you put it into a trust fund, not spend it.

The rules of visitation rights are included in the original custody agreement. If the exact wording is not present, the law presumes the noncustodial parent will adhere to the wishes of the primary custodial parent in such matters, or be in violation of a court order. If there is a joint custody order in place it should stipulate which parent is the managing conservator.

In order to get interim custody, you will need to petition the court. When children live with one parent, and the other has visitation, but there is no order in place, the parent whom the children live with has what is called defacto custody.

The parent without a custody order? If so, no, not without a court order to the contrary. If no custody order is in place, it depends on prevailing state law (or country if outside the USA) who has presumed custody, if joint custody is assumed in the absence of a court order, or other such specifications and based on the same, whether the custodial parent's permission, both parents' permissions and/or order of the court is required. At any rate, a minor may not make such a decision of their own volition....not in the United States anyway.

School is not a place of visitation, and ultimately the school is responsible for returning the child to the custodial parent at the end of the day, unless that specific custodial parent has notified the school of other arrangements. In this situation, it is imperative that the court order that sets forth legal custody be on file at the school.You need to check the laws in your particular jurisdiction by consulting an attorney or an advocate at the family court. Your question implies a non-custodial parent taking the child out of school during the school day. Generally, Unless the parents have shared legal custody, the non-custodial parent has no right to remove the child from school.The parent with sole legal custody should make certain the school has a copy of the court order that granted them sole legal custody. If someone other than the custodial parent will be picking up the child during the school day the parent should notify the principal in writing and also call to confirm. If necessary, the school should have on record a copy of the visitation schedule if the non-custodial parent will pick the child up after school on their visitation days.

Yes, but they could be served with an injunction by the other parent.

Well if the noncustodial parent wishes to take the kid the judge might give the parent custody if there is not a bad reason the parent did not get custody in the first place hope I helped you

Properly, it should not take place and I advise fathers not to, however there is no laws addressing this. It must be a provision of the custody/access orders.

Generally, there must be some change in circumstances for a court to modify a custody order. Perhaps the father has a more stable job, a better place to live, has improved his parenting skills, etc. The father should consult with an attorney who specializes in custody issues. The attorney can review the situation, the existing court orders and provide the father with his options and the likelihood of the court modifying the custody order. It is always best to have an experienced attorney represent you in these matters.Some general background regarding custody:Custody labels change depending upon the jurisdiction in which you reside. It is important to know and understandthe proper custody labels and have them applied in your child custody order. Generally there are two main categories of custody:Legal Custody: Legal custody refers to making major decisions in your child's life such as medical and health related decisions, education, and welfare.Physical Custody: Physical custody refers to which parent the children reside with on a day to day basis.Sole LegalOne parent has the right to make any decisions that affect the child.Joint LegalBoth parents have the right to be involved in decisions regarding the child.Sole PhysicalThe child resides with one parent who is said to have primary physical custody and the other parent has visitation rights pursuant to a visitation schedule either issued by the court or arranged by the parents.Joint PhysicalArrangements are designed that provide the child will spend 50% of their time with each parent. Child support is modified based on this time split and the differences between their incomes.Generally the phrase full custody is used to refer to a parent with sole legal custody. Sole legal custody means that the parent has the right to make all decisions that affect the child. That includes such things as where the child resides, attends school, medical treatment, etc. Joint legal custody means the parents both have an equal right to make decisions regarding the child and one must consult the other before making important decisions. Primary physical custody refers to the parent with whom the child resides the majority of the time.

In some states, if the custodial parent moves more than 65 miles "as the crow flies" from the original address at the time of the custody agreement and does not get written permission to do so from the non-custodial parent, the court can (and sometimes will) remove the child and place him/her with the non-custodial parent. At that time the non-custodial parent will be given full custody of the child and even if the first parent moves back, they probably will not regain custody again.

Yes, unless the living parent has a court order not allowing them to be with the child in that case the child would go to the next relative that is willing to take the child. The surviving parent will still have to go to court to have the custody awarded to him/her. After all, the court felt there was a good reason that the full custody award was rendered in the first place.

It depends on what type of custody agreement you have with the child's father. If there is visitation set in place and you have joint custody, you cannot move out of state without his permission.

Under these circumstances, where no orders are in place, the parents are considered to have joint physical custody. Though the child has not clear choice that is enforced by the laws, they do have greater say.

Are the parents married, divorced, separated? If divorced or separated, is there a custody order in place and if so, does it indicate who has legal custody or if it is joint? Generally, if the parents are married and there is no discord otherwise in the marriage, this is something parents are expected to work out between themselves. At any rate, if one parent objects to another parent's actions and the child involved is a minor, the parent who objects does have the right to file a motion of objection in the family court with jurisdiction (where the child legally resides) unless one parent has been granted full legal custody. In that case, again, the parent may file for a modification of that status and the court may award such a modification if they deem to be it in the best interests of the child to do so.
