That will make the court process easier. The other parent can sign their consent for you to have sole physical and legal custody. The judge will usually sign it with advice that the parent without custody maintain a relationship with the child by regular visitations. The court may set up a visitation schedule.

The other parent has filed a petition for joint custody. They want to have the right to be included in decisions regarding the child and perhaps want equal physical custody also. There will be a hearing. If you presently have sole custody and object to the other parent being awarded joint custody then you should consult with a attorney who specializes in custody issues who can represent you in the action.The other parent has filed a petition for joint custody.

If you have joint custody, there is one parent that is the custodial parent. A child can move in with you if you are the custodial parent or you can file in court to change your status to the custodial parent. The child should want to live with you as well.

If you have Joint Legal Custody, then neither parent can physically change residences without the approval of the other. If, per the question, the daughter is living with the father, or the father has "primary" custody, then you can move wherever "you" want, at least in my perception.

Yes who ever has the child legally can file for child support. But you have to demonstrate to the court that the child has been residing with you and you have the physical custody and you want to keep the physical custody and give the other parent visitation and joint legal custody. This is the fastest way to get things done and a direct answer lol.

It's possible, if you can substantially prove to a court that the parent is unfit. Custody would then go to the other parent, assuming there is one, they want the child and are fit to raise it. But you could certainly make a case for custody.

Only if that arraignment was made in the custody part of the divorce settlement. If it wasn't so stipulated, then the non-custodial parent must patition the divorce court for a new custody hearing.

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 “bird’s nest custody” 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.

As the father has joint legal custody of the child he can not say he does not want the child at the paramour.

User Avatar

It will be very dificult for the father to have joint legal and physical custody on the gounds that he is not avalible. The courts want the two parents to live in the same area to co-parent. He could if he moved back.

User Avatar

You would have to send 60 days advance notice about the move. The other parent will have the option to contest this or not. If it can't be decided between you then it goes back to court if you still want to move.

If you want sole legal and physical custody, you should, if only to protect your rights. Of course, the other parent will be notified and given an opportunity to object and counter.

For the grandparents to get the custody over the parent, they have to go through a court case and prove to their case to have custody.

User Avatar

Why would you want it? Joint custody is best for the kids.

User Avatar

It you have an income then yes. You want the best for your child. The Friend Of the Court can help you in this matter to get a fair child support amount. You need to gather your W-2 and other income and so does the other parent. Then they have a formula that will determine the amount usually 30% on the high side for the total income given.

They recently changed the laws of custody, No one parent has full custody UNLESS they see the other parent as unstable and unfit. If the parent you want to live with has been deemed unfit as a parent then it will have to be taken to court or you can contact certain child organizations to give you more details about how to leave your current home and return to the home of an "unfit parent" However if one parent obtained full custody of the child and the other parent was not deemed unfit as a parent, you may still live with them because of the recent change in custody laws, stating no one parent can have full or primary custody. (in other words, if your mom has full custody and your dad has none ((Also assuming the father hasn't been charged with being a drug addict, alcoholic, or financially unstable etc.)) you may live with the father)

The second parent may want sole custody, but it is up to the court to grant it. The father has to pay whatever amount the court has ordered regardless of how much time if any he spends with the child.

User Avatar

Details may vary from state to state and you will want to get it back by the time specified. Basically, if want joint custody you respond that you agree to it, and if you do not, you should consult with an attorney in your area as to how to respond.

User Avatar

It depends on what kind of custody arrangements you have. If you have joint legal custody, you both have to decide together what is best for the children. If you do not want the child to have a tattoo, the non-custodial parent should not allow the child to have it done and you can file contempt charges if they do.
