Having full legal or physical custody. If it is full legal custody the mother has given up any legal claim to the child. If it is full physical custody with joint legal custody the child will be in the legal custody parents home. She may elect to give the child up to be adopted by the stepmother.
In many states (and maybe in all states) if the custodial parent dies, then the non-custodial parent gains custody, provided that that his/her parental rights have not been terminated (and just because he/she did not have legal custody does not mean that his/her parental rights were terminated). Of course, in that event the stepparent can still petition the court for custody. Check with a local attorney.
No, unless the baby's biological father relenquishes his parental rights, he would get custody of the child if the mother dies, not her husband. The biological father must sign his rights away to the mother's husband.
Custody, not parental rights.
No, just your stepmother. Your mother-in-law is your husbands/wifes mother.
stepmother = meetria mother = meetera
Legally minors are not allowed to choose.
Depends if it is a single trailer or a double-wide
Aurora has a mother, not a stepmother
Boyfriend or husband (unless he is the biological father) has no legal right to the child at all. The mother can try to go for full custody though.
Your husband have to go to court and petition for custody. Unless the mother is unfit and you can prove it, it will most likely not be full custody though.
With the American legal system, if the children are young the female will most likely get custody.
She would have to petition the court to be appointed the temporary guardian. If the biological mother has joint custody or is available to take the children the custody will automatically go to her unless she has already been deemed unfit or consents to the guardianship.
If you're referencing a custody change, you need power of attorney.
No. His father did not marry but once. In fact, Grant's mother outlived her husband by about 10 years.
Even if your stepmother is quite young she is your stepmother and it is wrong for her to want to have a physical relationship with you. It is taking advantage of possibly a minor and also cheating on her husband (your father.) Tell your father about it and if he will not believe you then speak to your mother; grandparents or another adult family member.
It depends. Is the stepmother still married to the custodial father and if so does the custodial father have any joint or sole custody? It would have to be decided upon in court. If the stepmother is not with the father anymore and the child wants to live with the stepmother you could try to file for legal guardianship but the parents would need to agree or be proven unfit.
Zeus doesn't have a stepmother. His mother is Rhea, father is Kronos
A stepmother is the woman your father marries after your mother. His stepmother packed his lunch for school.
who can help a unmarried mother in California get legal and physical custody for free
Once a child is in state custody I don't think the mother has a say in who adopts the child. However, you may be allowed to meet the adoptive parents.
My husband had this happen to him..... The mother had sole custody, she died in a car accident. Father picked her up and now had sole custody of her. We called around to different attourneys to see if we had to do anything through the courts to get sole custody, and we were told that due to bio mother dying biodad instantly got sole custody. Now if he didn't want sole custody then a near relative could petition the court for sole custody. Hope that helps some.
one word because its stepmother NOT step mother
you would put the stepmother and the father on it
Generally, if married he has custody rights equal to the mother unless she has brought a petition for sole custody in his absence. If he is not married his custody rights must be established by a court order.
No. If the biological parents have joint legal custody, the step mother has no legal authority over the child whatsoever.
If a biological dad has custody and placement of his children and the mother remarries, is the her new husband suddenly a stepfather?
