Q: My wife moved out and took our three daughters. Is it legal for her to move more then 50 miles away without my consent.

No custody or divorce papers have been filed. They will be living with her new boyfriend

Gregory William Liebl answered on Jan 17, 2019

The answer depends on whether there is a court order in place and whether or not 50 miles away puts her outside of the state of North Dakota. You will want to speak with an attorney further about this to get you pointed in the right direction.

My husband is paying child support for 2 children. His income has gone up since then. He got a higher paying job so we could make ends meet. But we now we have 2 boys of our own.

The short answer to your question is "yes, the biological children your husband does not share with the obligee are taken into consideration." That being said, it is not a dollar for dollar "match."

There is never a guarantee that you can obtain custody over a child that is not yours.

Gregory William Liebl answered on Mar 26, 2018

Like most legal answers, it really depends. What state are they living in? Is there an Order/Judgment in place? In North Dakota, if there isn't anything in place, he has as much of a right to the child as the mother does. That being said, he should not keep the child from her. There are different...

Q: Hi Can a mother control how a father spends time with his child epically if he's married and has other kids with wife

Gregory William Liebl answered on Feb 13, 2018

The answer is "it depends." Is there a Judgment? What does the Judgment say? If there is no Court Order/Judgment, then the father should have as much of a right to the child as the mother does. You should contact an attorney as this situation is very fact dependent.

It never hurts to consult an attorney. The laws on moves out-of-state vary between states and so it is important to know where he brought his motion. You should probably call an attorney in the state he brought the motion to see what your options are.

Never married to the father. We have no court orders for custody. Would I be able to leave north Dakota with my child?

Gregory William Liebl answered on Jan 19, 2018

According to the plain language of the statute in ND you could leave without his consent or a court order. As a practical matter; however, it is a good idea to get his permission or a court order regardless. This is because, if you leave without his permission he may bring an action for... Read more »

Gregory William Liebl answered on Jan 12, 2018

The answer is, "it depends." If you truly have a legal separation with a "judgment" or "order" for legal separation that was filed by the court you are to follow the Court's directive. In other words, you have to follow what a Judgment says.

Q: Can a DUI from 10 years ago affect my ability to win sole custody over my daughter now?

Gregory William Liebl answered on Dec 15, 2017

The short answer is that it probably won't affect your custody case, but a lot of other variables can come in to play. If it is truly 10 years or older, you may even be able to keep the judge from hearing about it under the North Dakota Rules of Evidence. You should still seek out an attorney so... Read more »
