One of your parents has to file a motion to amend their custody agreement. If there are no extenuating circumstances and your father has no issues that would make it bad for you to live with him, then most of the time the courts will take your preference under consideration and allow you to decide which parent you'd like to live with. You and your parents will be bound by the court's decision.

Boycotts, polling, voting, petitions, and referendums are five of the legal actions that citizens of the US utilize to affect our government.

What legal actions can i take if my employer doesnt pay me?

I think you really need to go and see a specialist in family law, or the equivalent of the UK's "Citizens Advice Bureau" in your country. Regardless as to what actions can be taken you will have to take these these actions through the courts anyway, and will probably need a legal representative in the end anyway, so you might as well start as you will have to finish.

By Mother Earth, I take it to mean the planet we live on. That is the key point. We live here. We should take care of our planet. That is why it is important.

If the kids live with the father then he can... but if the kid live with the mother then he has to notify her first.

If, and only if, she has legal MAIN custody of the child, then yes.

If she has custody of the kids. Legal custody.

She can challenge for custody, but the question that arises is why she do not already file a motion to modify while in possession of the child? Until a custody decision, she lacks any standing to object to the circumstances, and by the time it goes to court, the child may be a legal adult. At this point, it's a little late to take any action.

Only if the mother has been designated the minor's payee by the SSA or there is a court order designating the mother the conservator of the minor child. In such cases the mother would be responsible for making a yearly accounting to the SSA and/or court of how the funds were spent and/or saved.

No. If the biological parents have joint legal custody, the step mother has no legal authority over the child whatsoever.

only if the mother has full custody or if they are married i am pretty sure that is legal.

no the mother should have the legal obligation to take care of the child

Only if you are the father or legal guardian can you take the child away legally without a court order. If it is deemed that the child lives in a abusive or neglected lifestyle then CPS (child protection services) will take the appropriate action against the mother.

The legal guardian has all rights over the child unless the mother has visitation rights. If so, they must be followed.

Visit the court and ask to speak with an advocate with the state Child Support Enforcement agency.

You can live with your grand parents if your alive mom says it is OK or you can live with your grandma and grandpa if your mother is in a very serious injury to the point where she can not take care of you any more

Take legal advice. Paternity has to be proved not assumed, first.
