When their life and/or the lives of others in the home are put in danger due to the child's use of force or threat of it.

Depends on why the child was removed from your home.

Only if there are grounds for concern for the safety of the child, or that the parent will run.

Occasionally. The parent should be removed from the house or the child from the home. To start to heal the relationship the parent has to gain the child's trust, sometimes it cannot be gained thru a counselor

Your cousin once removed is the child of your cousin who is not described as removed, or the parent of your cousin who is not removed. For example, your second cousin once removed is the child of your second cousin, or the parent of your third cousin, depending on which of you is in the older generation.

Yes the child support can be revoked since the parent receiving support is no longer legally supporting the child

You do not say how or if the child was removed from the home of the other parent, is children and families involved, or is there direct evidence of abuse? Expound your answer and write back.

In general, child protection does not get involved in custody in any way. If a child is removed from an unfit home the noncustodial parent can often have the child placed with them, but are considered a foster parent in the legal sense. There is a federal law that states that the offending parent has 15 out of the next 22 consecutive months to rehabilitate and get custody back of their child. If this does not happen then the state is obligated to file a termination of parental rights against that individual. If the parent completes rehabilitation then the child is returned to their custody and the parents must determine custody through a separate court action. The short answer is that child protection is generally required to attempt to reunify the child with the parent that they were removed from.

If 'sometimes' is constantly, the parent obviously needs help with her skills.

If the child is a minor, no, they cannot. Expelling a minor for from their parent or legal guardian's home is an act of neglect. Generally when police officers encounter a child who has been kicked out or locked out, they will bring them back to the parent and force the parent to let them back in. If they refuse, they are arrested and charged with neglect. This is true in all states. If a child is committing crimes, the parent can alert the police to the criminal act and see to it that the child is prosecuted or remanded to the state as a ward of the court and removed from their custody based on the same. But a parent does not have authority to decide they want to expel their child from the home just because they want to.

Not on taxes no. The parent the child lives with has the main right to claim the child. But if that parent can't or doesn't want to then the other parent can

Yes, depending on the circumstances a child can be removed from their home by court order or upon petition of the DCFS.

Pretty much anything they wish. They can have them removed from the house if they do not follow the rules.

i think the parent has to let a child live at home until they are 18 unless they both agree the child can move out

when the parent isn't home, and the child is alone in the house. In some cases it's child neglect, if the child records or has some kind of documentation of he/she doing the act, the parent can go to jail, or the child.

Yes. Child support is for the "custodial parent". If you are not living at home with your custodial parent, then they are no longer eligible to receive child support. However, the non-custodial parent can request a modification if the child is no longer living with the custodial parent and that includes a change of custody. A 17 yr old is not emancipated in Texas, unless proper procedures through the courts have taken place. If that is the case, then the custodial parent and child are no longer eligible for child support.

Your first cousin once removed is the child of your first cousin or the parent of your second cousin. Your second cousin once removed is the child of your second cousin or the parent of your third cousin. Being once removed means that you was one generation different that that once removed cousin when you count the number of generations between each of you and the most recent ancestor you have in common.

it is okay for one parent to work a job and for the other to stay at home and take care of a child as long as it makes the child and the parent happy! and if the child is getting the care that is needed and there is being enough money made to support the family.

The right to tell them to move out. They are no longer responsible for the adult and can have them forcibly removed.

If a Parent so chooses to home-school their child, there is no law against it so long as there is a basic curriculum the child can follow, and the the parent registers their home-schooled child with their respective state. It is ultimately the Parent's decision whether or not to place their child in public, private or home school. It merely depends on what the parent feels would be a more productive learning environment for their child.
