How old does a child have to be in California to decide which parent they want to live with?

California Custody DecisionsIf both parents are equally acceptable in the opinion of the court, the request of a teenager would be given serious consideration.

Check out Family Law Code 3042. (a) If a child is of sufficient age and capacity to reason so as to form an intelligent preference as to custody, the court shall consider and give due weight to the wishes of the child in making an order granting or modifying custody.

(b) In addition to the requirements of subdivision (b) of Section 765 of the Evidence Code, the court shall control the examination of the child witness so as to protect the best interests of the child. The court may preclude the calling of the child as a witness where the best interests of the child so dictate and may provide alternative means of obtaining information regarding the child's preferences.

The Family Court judge would decide if the child(ren) are mature enough to decide why they wish to live with the parent named. Age is less of a factor then the ability of the child to voice a valid opinion other than they simply "want to do it."

What countries can the US not extradite you from?

See the below link for the information you seek:

Countries, such as France, Russian Federation, Germany, Austria, China and Japan, have laws that forbid extraditing their respective citizens. Others, such as Israel, prohibit extradition of their own citizens in their constitutions.

No country in the world has an extradition treaty with all other countries; for example, theUnited States lacks extradition treaties with several nations, including the People's Republic of China, Namibia, and North Korea.

Most countries require themselves to deny extradition requests if, in the government's opinion, the suspect is sought for a political crime. Many countries, such as Mexico, Canada and most European nations, will not allow extradition if the death penalty may be imposed on the suspect unless they are assured that the death sentence will not be passed or carried out.

If you are a non-custodial parent and you sign temporary custody papers do you still have to pay child support?

Temporary custody papers will include all provisions for the child/children including amount of child support to be paid. A temporary agreement is made when guidelines need to be set/enforced before the matter goes to court. The child still as necessities that must be provided for, therefore I would say yes... whichever parent the child is living with is entitled to the amount of childsupport set forth by the laws in your state.

Does joint custody stop you from paying child support?

I don't think so because my parents have joint custody and my dad pays child support. But my mom might have custody of me and just let me see my dad so he's always a part of my life!

Can a joint custody parent give the school permission to send and receive email about a child to his girlfriend without the other parents permission?

No. That would be a violation of the child's and the parent's privacy. The girl friend has no right to receive any information about the child. The father needs to take a more active role with his child and not pass it off to a girl friend.

What is a proposed form of order?

A proposed order is a preliminary form of a written order that one lawyer prepares to put in writing an oral decision by a judge. If there is a motion, say for an order to compel the other party to appear at a deposition, the court makes a ruling from the bench verbally. Normally, whichever lawyer won on the motion prepares the proposed form of order. It is always possible that the lawyer preparing the order makes some mistake in wording or leavies something out that should be in, or adds something that shouldn't be in. In order to avoid this, most courts require the lawyer preparing the order to send a proposed form of order to the court and the other lawyer for review. Tho other lawyer has a right to object to the wordin. If no objection is made or if one is made and dealt with by the court, the proposed form of order is either signed as is or modified to become the final form of the order.

If your child is 17 months old and she has been living with you her father for 13 months can you get sole custody?

Has the child's mother exercised visitation? If so, I would strongly discourage you from trying to get sole custody -- unless it is in the best interest of the child. If the mother is doing drugs or putting the child at risk in some other way, then it will not be hard to obtain full custody if you can prove that she is unfit. If she has taken no interest in the child in 13 months, it shouldn't be difficult to obtain sole custody either. However, if the mother cares and wants to see her child and does not put the child at definite risk, then obtaining sole custody won't only hurt the mother, but the child will suffer for the rest of her life. It is extremely important to have a bond with your mother if that is at all possible - otherwise you deal with feelings of rejection, insecurity, low self-esteem, and unworthiness...this I know because my dad took me away from my mom when I was just 8 years old and to this day my mother and I don't have a real close relationship - which as created some real problems in my life. Hope that helps you. And please don't take this the wrong way - if your child is at risk with her mother, you need to take action for at the very least supervised visitation. Take care and good luck.

The answer given by the previous poster is a very good one. You probably would be able to get sole custody. However, unless the mother is adjudicated as unfit (and perhaps not even then) she would not be denied visitation rights. Unless she was willing to relinquish all of her parental rights and obligations. She could be required to pay child support just as a father could be. The emotional aspects IMO are as important as the legal ones.

Only if you know for a fact that the county posts this information on line. Many counties in this country do not, due to manpower limitations, and budget and cost considerations.

Can you move out at 17 if you live with your parents but you have a notarized letter stating you are living with your aunt?

The presence of a notarized statement is not relevant, as the state law determines the age of majority and the court determines who has custody of a minor if the parents have had their rights terminated or some other issue prevents the minor from living with them. That does not appear to apply in this case, the parents have legal custody of you unless a court has ruled otherwise. The legal age in most US states is 18 and there are no states where a 17-year-old can legally and arbitrarily leave parental custody if the parents are opposed.

How do you establish custody if you were never married?

File a motion with the courts in the county in which you live to determine custody. You will probably need an attorney or mediator to help you put together a custody agreement. Both parents will need to agree to all the terms of the agreement and then you are both bound to the agreement unless you choose to amend it.

Did Kris Kardashian get most of her money from her divorce?

According to one televised account, Kris was dating Bruce while going through the divorce process with Robert Kardashian, Sr.

When the subject of money came up, Robert and Kris could not come to an agreement.

Reportedly, Bruce took matters into his own hands and invited Robert to lunch and told him that he was so in love with Kris and her children that she would forgo a settlement so that she could be free to marry Bruce Jenner.

This is some great guy!

Do step parents have rights to step children?

Unfortunately they don't, even when you are married. If the other parent has died, then you can apply to be guardian of the children, where you would then get rights. Or if the other parent couldn't look after then children, the same could happen.
