Both parents need to be mature about this and realize the children have feelings as well. To the children you two are just "mom and dad." Many couples are angry, frustrated and sometimes hate even enters the picture. The wife may have good reason for taking the children and running (or the father.) There are several reasons why one or both of you could lose: Mental/physical abuse (including sexual abuse) or abuse against a partner in marriage. A poor environment establish for the children (this doesn't mean you can't be poor to middle class, but the quality of time and effort you put into the children to keep them safe and happy.) Using money to over-power your partner for the custody of the children. Alcohol/drug abuse. Sometimes the courts will let the children decide who they want to live with. If you and your wife have just had normal problems in your life and decided to split-up, then the children have the right to see BOTH their parents. By now you should be seeking legal counsel to protect your rights, but remember, this also protects your wife's rights. You can find out where your wife is and have your lawyer tell her that she must return to your State and comply with the law. In some States when one partner takes off with the children it can be considered kidnapping! Good luck Marcy
Did garth get custody of his children in his divorce case
If she has won legal custody, then yes.
You divorce and get custody over your kids or just get full custody!
You have the visitation rights that were established in the divorce, and you have no custody rights.
yes, Vanna White was awarded custody of both children
A custody lawyer will help you make decisions about the care and custody of your children in the event of a divorce or seperation.
Will you have custody or not?
YES, IF YOU ARE GOING THROUGH A DIVORCE, YOU NEED TO ASK FOR CUSTODY AS PART OF THE DIVORCE SETTLEMENT. THIS WOULD BE THE BEST TIME TO DO IT BECAUSE IF SOCIAL SERVICES ALREADY TOOK THE CHILDREN FROM THE MOTHER , THE JUDGE WOULD EASILY GRANT YOU CUSTODY THE CHILDREN.
In a divorce, the other spouse has to be notified of the motion for divorce, and they also have to be notified of your intention to sue for custody fo the children. So, no, it's not possible to be granted a divorce or custody of the children without the other spouse being notifiied of the intent.
Custody rulings have nothing to do with who files for the divorce first.
Diana and Prince Charles shared custody of the children
