If she thinks that the kids are in danger , she can do what she thinks is appropriate. That does not mean that a Judge would agree with her. If you are being pressured and you both are not coming to an agreement, you need to get a Judge involved.
I don't know if you are working with an attorney or not, and I don't know if you are married with him or not. I would suggest that you should consult with an attorney, either a private attorney or the State's Attorney.
You should meet with an attorney to discuss your case. You need to be named the father in a court order to best protect yourself. If you have been supporting the children, you may not owe any back support. It all friends on the facts.
My ex wife currently has custody of our daughter. Her current husband has filed an op against her for domestic violence and in op he states he does not believe my daughter is safe with her without her parents supervision (she lives with her parents). If guilty will I be awarded custody or do I need... Read more »

As you describe your situation, he will remain responsible for child support. You personally will not be responsible for his child support. However, some of the money that he makes during the marriage to you will need to be used to pay his child support. Ordinarily, money made during the marriage...Read more »
You need to review what your divorce decree says. If you are named as the father and have an obligation to pay child support, you can't just give that up. I would suggest that you meet with an attorney and go over the facts of your case. I don't know if you are looking for someone else to adopt the...Read more »

He hasn't tried to contact me in over two years and now his new girlfriend is the one trying to contact me and my new husband. My son doesn't even remember who he is. He considers my husband his father. I worry it could be detrimental to his mental health to reintroduce him to his real father at... Read more »
I urge you to talk with an attorney pronto. If you and your husband were to adopt the child, then your ex would have no rights to the child. Otherwise, the Judge will consider the ex's request for visitation. The Judge is not going to cut off the dad's rights because dad has been absolutely...Read more »
No order in court yet. Will be doing this soon, both have representation but interested to hear other viewpoints. One lawyer says reserve judgement but I don't believe that removes the risk, just pushes it down the line. Is this true?
One of you needs to file the case in court. That person should work with an attorney to advise you on this. You could get all the way to court for the final day and the Judge does not agree to your deal about no one paying child support.
Perhaps both of you will have an attorney. But, you...Read more »
You did not provide much information. Although you are not married to the father, I don't know if there is an order from a Paternity Court which would require you to give him notice of your intent to move.
She had not filled any paperwork out and is moving over 60 miles away. What can I do? I do not agree with the move. After seeing 1 answer I must add that the move is still in this state, but over 60 miles away from the current location. Thank you
She's home alone most of the time, her dad never got her a dr. Doesnt set her up with appointments or takes her, doesnt cook for her, makes her clean everything and go to the market.
