An internship is a temporary and supervised position where on-the-job training is learned.
No, but you can grant extended visitation privileges.
What is the time line for child abandonment for a non custodial parent? My husband was given temporary full custody of a three year old and five year old in December 2008. The mother was only allowed to have supervised visitation. She maintained off and on contact until May 2009. She has not called or made any attempt to contact the girls since May. How long do we have to wait to file abandonment?
No. Only the court can enter an order of temporary custody. With the non-custodial parent incarcerated and with the consent of the custodial parent the court would likely approve a temporary guardianship that is in the best interest of the child.
I'm currently in the middle of a divorce and I'm dealing with the same issue. I have had many people tell me this including lawyers and even the crisis control for domestic violence. You cannot stop a parent from seeing the child. The parent can be in jail and still get visitation. Lawyers are not willing to put any effort into trying to prevent visitation so if you look for a lawyer bring up this issue early on. The best you may be able to do is get supervised visits but supervised visits are only a temporary solution and soon the parent gets unsupervised visits. Here's a word of advice, document as much as you can and as often as you can. Dates, times, details will make all the difference in court. The more verifiable documentation you can provide the better off you'll be in proving your case.
Logic would dictate that the answer would be, absolutely. Unfortunately, the reality is, maybe. In circumstances such as described the judge will often deny full permanent custodial rights and allow an unfit parent the opportunity to take parenting classes and a rehabilitation process. Generally in such a situation the responsible parent is awarded temporary full custody and the unfit parent is allowed supervised visitation until he or she sucessfully fulfills the court mandated obligations.
A married father has equal access until a court rules otherwise. For a single father, a temporary visitation order may be imposed by the court, however, it is more likely the child support and visitation orders will be addressed and rendered at the same time.
The father should request a visitation schedule from the court immediately. That should have been done at the hearing for temporary custody.The father should request a visitation schedule from the court immediately.

To get temporary visitation rights, you will have to go to the court and file for them. There will most likely be a hearing that will determine if these visitation rights were granted or not.
You are the non-custodial parent - the minor does not wish to live with you: If the court has awarded full custody to the other parent what you are responsible for would be whatever is required of you by the court order for support and/or visitation - and, of course, the the minor's health, safety, and welfare while they are on visitation, or in your temporary control and care. One would assume that you might have had legal representation for establishment of the custody. If you were represnted by counsel - and if this matter was unclear to you, ask them.
That would be considered parental abduction of the children, provided this is not a normal visitation period. File a police report. Be sure to have current copy of custody order. see links
There can be legitimate reasons for withholding a visitation. Those reasons must be explained by testimony in a court hearing if the non-custodial parent files a motion for contempt against the custodial parent. The custodial parent should be well prepared with dates and times and reasons for withholding the visit along with witnesses if possible and should be reporting the circumstances to their attorney.Possible reasons include:A court order to that effect.Suspicion that the child is being abused or neglected. This must be followed up as soon as possible with a temporary court order until the situation can be fully evaluated by the court.The non-custodial parent appears to be under the influence of alcohol or drugs when they arrive to pick the child up.The child is very sick.The non-custodial parent arrives at an unscheduled time.The non-custodial parent does not appear in person to take the child. If they send a substitute without the prior approval of the custodial parent the custodial parent could refuse to allow the pick up.
