only if mum has custody
In many states, she only has firm custody if she has already adopted the child.
If he is legally the father he has a chance, of course. It's up to the judge. He has to petition the court for custody.
What do I do when my sons father hasn't been there for my sons in over 11 years and now wants custody?
If you are 16 years old and the court has given the entire custody to your mother who is living in Michigan, the father who lives in Florida can not take you there unless he has the permission of the court to do so.
No, you slowly make it harder, i.e. first use half, if father continues declining, file full custody
Yes. For the father to get legal custody he has to go to court and petition for it after he has proved paternity. If he has had the child for the past 18 months, this should not be a problem.
As an illegal, he probably does not have access to the legal system. The grandparents should probably determine if the father is a fit parent and, if so, do the right thing.
Usually in such a case, the State becomes the child's guardian. The courts may award custody to the father after examining his fitness as a parent.
YES YOU CAN . once you have full custody you have the right to move wherever you want to that's the reason you file for custody right...the the reason full custody was ordered to give you full permission to do whatever you want ..the court gave u full custody only because they see you are a fit parent at the time of filing. however the father can file for full custody in the future but i doubt he will get it since the child bee living with you for so many years and you were the sole provider
The Clark Sisters father is not living. He died a couple years after Dr. Mattie Moss Clark. Dr. Clark & Eld. Clark was separated and Eld. Clark married again.
In roughly 85% of the cases, however this has little to do with the views of the court on father custody. Most often, attorneys who lack the experience to properly handle a father custody case, will simply tell the father not to try to get custody because the court is bias or in many cases the father is not interested in full custody. When I first started teaching fathers about custody issues, the rate was 97%. However, now 21 years later, the rate is 15%. The primary problem is fathers taking the time to prepare for a custody challenge. see links below for more info
You can not decide where to live at this age but tell your mother you are not living with your father so she can bring this to court and get custody of you. You can not just move out against his wishes so better your mother go through the proper channels.
only by court ordersee links
No, as it's been longer than six months
Filing for child support has no bearing on the issue of custody. Custody is decided on the basis of the welfare of the child. To get custody of a child, the father would have to demonstrate that he would do a better job as parent. I will add that even if you do need financial assistance, that does not in any way suggest that you are not a good mother. Those are separate issues.
If he has abandoned the mother, talk to a lawyer. There may be a law in your state that after so many years of 'abandonment' custody is automatic. Get a lawyer and file for full custody if abandonment is not the issue.
The father unless he is found unsuitable by the court for some reason.
If not married, the mother always has sole custody, even without an order. see links below
If you have custody awarded or appointed by the court, the father will have to go through the court to get custody. Usually, to reverse such an order, he would have to prove that being in your custody is detrimental to the children. There is shared custody. They have lived with the mother since the divorce four years ago. He has not paid any money for support. Mother has had children more than the 50% of time. Mothers attorney said that father has rights to custody since the mother works nights and they are with her new husband. Since he is blood father he can take custody of children! I find this hard to believe but have to face the fact that it maybe true. I find it a great disruption in their schedule and hard to see a judge changing it but could it happen?
If you were never married to the father of the child(Children) custody HAS NOT been established. You must go to court and have custody determined. My child lived with me for 5 Years. The father paid support to the state of Missouri Which I entern received, and he visited on occasion. One weekend he picked her up for a visit and disappeared. No one would help because custody was never established. He had just as much right as I.
Nothing wrong or illegal living with your boyfriend. Other things must have played a part or you could have had shared custody. The judge should've said something about it.
She had five children. At the time of her murder, the eldest was living with her father (their grandfather) and the others were living with her husband (their father), as the couple had been separated for years.
Apparently not, But he did gain custody of his nephew, Karl, who was 9 years old when Beethoven's brother Carl died.
