Can 15-year-old move in with her grandmother without legal documents if she has her single mother's permission?

Well, yeah, if Mom is the custodial parent and she gives permission for it, then you can move in with Grandmother. But, if Grandmother does not have some type of 'legal document' such as temporary guardianship, then there are going to be potential difficulties that Grandmother will face. For example--enrolling you in school, consenting to your medical care, etc.

Who has full custody of a child born to an unmarried couple in Nevada?

Generally, if the parents are unmarried the mother has sole custody and control in most states until the father can establish his paternity. Remember, a child's mother can always be identified by medical records. Since the father didn't give birth and he was not legally married at the time of the birth he must establish his paternity by signing the birth certificate at the time of birth (waiving DNA testing rights) which must be done with mother's consent.

If he doesn't sign the birth certificate then he must seek another way to establish his paternity and that is done through a DNA test. A paternity test can be arranged through the court. Once paternity is established in court, the father can request visitations or custody through the court. If the mother retains physical custody she can request that the court issue a child support order. If the father gets physical custody he can request a child support order.

What is court appointed guardian enlighten?

A "guardian ad litem" is someone who is appointed by the court to represent the interests of someone in a single court action/lawsuit. Guardians ad litem are often appointed in divorce and custody disputes to represent the interests of minor children (similar to a disinterested parent). Guardians ad litem can also be appointed to represent the interests of mentally ill or disabled persons. Essentially, these guardians are attorneys or volunteer advocates who assert the interests of those who may not be able to fully advocate for themselves.

What court order can be appealed?

Answer

One of the mechanisms built into the U.S. justice system is a system to deal with appeals. Basically, any court order (except one by the Supreme Court) can be appealed. But it's an uphill battle. After all, one is seeking to have the order of a judge (or panel of judges) set aside. The basis for the appeal must have merit or an appellate court will reject it outright. If this happens, there's always another level of appeal, but the slope gets even steeper. (Remember, it's an uphill battle.)

Its C. All final orders which dispose of the entire case.

How can a grandmother gain legal custody of the grandchildren she's raised since birth?

The grandmother must petition the family court for guardianship of the children. She should consult with an attorney who can review the situation and explain her options. If she cannot afford an attorney she should visit the court and ask if there is a legal advocate or agency who can help her.

The court will order an evaluation of the situation usually by appointing a guardian ad litem. The GAL will make home visits, interview the children, investigate why the parents are not present, and write a comprehensive report for the court that will be used by the judge to determine if the guardianship is in the best interest of the children. If all goes well the grandmother will begin receiving some form of financial support.

Can you get your child back after you relinquish your rights?

Circumstances can change. If, for example, your child is in the custody of someone who has now been arrested on drug charges, you can petition the court to award custody to you. If you don't have some concrete reason to believe that your child should be in your custody, but you merely regret having relinquished your rights, then it is unlikely that the existing decision would be reversed. Another angle is that even without a legal right to custody, you might still be allowed to visit if you are on good terms with the person who does have custody. Sometimes arguments can resolve, fences can be mended, and bygones can be bygones. It is generally a good thing for children to know their parents, and you can make that argument.

Is it legally ok to take your child around a significant other when legally still married?

It's a bad idea for many reasons. It doesn't show good judgment nor maturity. It doesn't set a good example for your child. It leads to confusion and misunderstanding of the norms of a civilized society and exposes them to someone the other parent doesn't know and therefore cannot approve of. You would need to teach your child to be secretive and dishonest in order not to have them tell their other parent about the encounters. The child would be placed in an uncomfortable and unwholesome position.

At the time of the eventual divorce remember that judges are human and they have a lot of wiggle room when rendering decisions. Having a "significant other" in the picture during your marriage and then exposing your child to that illicit affair would not result in sympathetic decisions on the part of the judge over contested matters. Your spouse could use that poor judgment against you in custodial matters.

Can you get arrested for taking your children if there are no custody papers?

If a single father, yes, as you have no assumed rights to the child. If married, generally not, but the application of this is less clear as the police rarely ask the mother to prove she has custody. As such, you get arrested and by the time you clear it up, she has filed against you. see link

If you have physical and joint legal custody can you take the child out of state for a vacation without permission from the other parent?

I would be necessary to give the other parent notice of the pending vacation plans. Whether or not you would need permission from that parent to take an out of state trip depends upon the terms of the custodial order and the laws of the state in which the order was issued.

Can a father keep a 9 month baby from her mother?

If the mother has been the custodial parent (which most mothers are), or has been legally designated the custodial parent with a visitation order for the father, the mother can (and should) contact the police. Ask the police to intervene. At the same time, get an attorney to file an emergency petition in family court for custodial interference.

If the mother is the party with only visitation rights, under a court order for visitation, you would first need to know your rights and responsibilities under the order. If the father is violating the order, you would need to petition the court for the father disobeying the court order. The father would need to show just cause for not giving the baby to you at the appointed times per the court order. As long as you are doing your part of the order, and have no problems the judge could use to rule against you, the order should be enforced.

What are the rights of both parents when their child is raised by the third person?

There is a wide range of possibilities depending on the details and the court orders. A third party may have a legal guardianship with the parents having visitation rights or the court may terminate the parents rights. You need to review any court orders related to the case and either visit the court and ask to speak with an advocate or hire an attorney who can review the situation and explain the options, if any.
