Rewording question for vagueness. In regards to custody exchange agreement the phrase "any other times mutually decided and agreed upon" I am aware that this does not mandate additional time. Ex spouse reason for not allowing additional time is both parties agree to additional time and... Read more »
Again the answer is the same. The officer does not have anything to enforce because the mutual agreement is an above and beyond clause. The officer can address any definite order from the court - such as a specific holiday or where one person is supposed to meet at a specific time ((that is in the...Read more »
I am teens biological mother but my rights were terminated to her 15 years ago. She has recently been taken by the state again but from her aunt that adopted her and doesn't want her back. she wants to be with me. I don't want them to come pick her up and not sure what I can do at this point
Unfortunately for you you have no legal standing in keeping her if your rights were terminated. Her aunt “may” grant you guardianship which would essentially give you permission for custody but would not change your status in regards to the parental rights. This is all conditional on the courts...Read more »
In current permanent parenting plan, custody exchanges are detailed except one. The phrase "Any other times mutually decided and agreed on by and between the parties" is included. Ex spouse refuses any and all requests for this as she believes that this is not enforceable if one party... Read more »
Your question is a bit vague and not sure what the law enforcement provision is regarding to. In general “any other times” is just that times that are not specifically mentioned in the plan (ie. Regular visits, holidays, summer, etc…) and thus these times are merely optional so long as both...Read more »
Due to extenuating circumstances and the fact that my ex has parental alienated my kids that they absolutely refuse to have anything to do with me, do I need her signature to relinquish my parental rights.
Once a parent always a parent until your rights are relinquished as a process of law. You cannot just simply waive the rights unless you are giving consent for a step-parent to adopt. Even if you attempted to waive the rights you are still responsible for support until someone else fills that role...Read more »

Many courts REQUIRE Mediation before a case is set for trial. This is a good opportunity for you to settle the case. Try to hire an attorney to advise you a" the mediation. Hopefully you can settle your case then. Good luck.
And I want my kids back, they haven’t taken me back to court for it and i just want to know if I can show up and get my kids since the tempo custody was for 6 months and it’s been way past that. I just found out about this. My parents who have my kids dislike me very much. They had nothing... Read more »
You do not have enough details to properly answer your question. However, as with almost any custody issue you should contact a family law attorney to discuss the specifics of your case and your options.
There is a default state statute on this and even if your decree is absent wording it is enforceable. However, it is more applicable to the primary custodial parent (or more specifically the one person who can declare the primary resident of the child). You should contact an experienced family law...Read more »

If your rights were terminated and the child was adopted to another then it is very rare that you can get rights restored. There are a couple exceptions but those are extremely hard to prove and validate. As such the other parents have ultimate say over their child. Contact an adoption attorney to...Read more »
My dhs lawyer has been going back and forth for almost 3/4 months trying to get the discovery for our case from the courts and they keep beating around the bush. Now they are not even responding to him. I know that the discovery does not have to legally be given out (even though we are entitled to... Read more »
I don't know what discovery the courts would be providing to you. Generally its the opposing party that you are requesting documents/information from and if they fail to comply with discovery requests you file a Motion to Compel. Your DHS attorney probably knows this.
You would need to file a Motion to Modify custody and set it for hearing before the Judge. You should also file for emergency custody if the custodial parent is currently in jail. This can be complicated so I suggest you seek the services of an attorney.
Want are the actual crimes here? The man and his wife obtained guardianship through the courts on a n unrelated but close family friends' newborn when she was arrested. The guardianship application, upon sworn oath, stated no family relationship.While she was incarcerated, he submitted an... Read more »
Sorry for your troubles in this matter. While sometimes our emotions do not always line up with the legal process you should context an attorney to assist you in this matter so they can help you coordinate through this trying time.
I claimed her because she's 18 and lives with me full time since June and half time before then. That's 91/2 months of the year. I interpreted that as she is no longer eligible for her to claim on taxes, but she's eligible for me to claim. Am I wrong, she is threatening to go to court.
It really depends on the wording of your decree. The IRS has its own rules about which parent can claim the children on their taxes and they often don't care what a decree says. However, and this is very important, a divorce decree is an enforceable court order and disobeying it can put you in...Read more »
Sorry for your misfortune in regards to your house. If that is the only thing in your case and there are not other circumstances then you should file a motion to enforce. Contact a family law attorney to assist you with this for best results.
Non custodial is behind in child support but is making payments. The visitation is court ordered and is not being denied by non custodial but not being followed by custodial due to no communication at all for the last 4 years, despite non custodial and family reaching out.
