i have a 4 year old son. His father never legitimized him. I have never kept him from him. I filed child support through the state and a month and a half after i got served saying he now wants 50% custody with no child support. What is the likelihood of him actually getting 50%
Your question is vague as to what real estate you're asking about.... his deceased mother's or real property your step-father and mother own jointly or separately. A competent attorney can answer your questions. Have all the pertinent facts readily available for the consultation.
A well trained attorney can examine, under oath, parties and witnesses, and also has discovery tools that will show the Court an accurate portrayal of the parties' income, etc. Also, if there are legal reasons to disturb a final judgment, time is of the essence to do so. Consult with an...Read more »
I generally advise fathers to register if they have concerns that they have fathered any children, other considerations including such as a desire to have a relationship with their offspring. Some men, for obvious financial reasons, intentionally choose not to register. A well drafted petition...Read more »
I have all the proof of parental alienation. CONSTANT custodial interference. interstate interference. neglecting to get him to school. threats, harrassing, damage to property, domestic violence, stalking, threatening me if i call govt officials to check on our son. They have money, does that buy... Read more »
Many attorneys, and I’m assuming local to you too, provide free consultations. Also, check with the local legal aid. Child custody situations can be stressful, but a competent local attorney can ease the stress. Good luck.
I just found out that a DNA test has been done and he is supposedly not her father Rumor Has It that I miss a court date so I forfeited my rights even though I was not served with paperwork 4 said court date. What charges can be filed against him and what do I need to do to get my child back
A parent generally does not lose parental rights without a trial, which would mean the case was well along procedurally. If there was a trial set and you failed to appear, the clock is ticking fast on your time to challenge the result. I agree with the other attorney. You need to consult with...Read more »
It was a Rule Nisi but the judge wouldn't hear it until mediation and only gave 2 weeks. Husband filed right before Thanksgiving and served ammended papers seeking Rule Nisi right before Christmas. He's trying for custody. Been so busy at work and have had to take time off to do all I... Read more »
Falls on the same days as my work schedule I can’t take him to work and be at my work on time we both work in two different county’s. Ex says it’s my responsibility to take him to work because his work schedule falls on my weekend visits. But our paper work doesn’t say anything about taking... Read more »
If he's like a typical 16 year old keeping his attention, especially with alternating weekend visitation is particularly hard. He's not going to be this young forever. This isn't legal advice, but..... every second you can spend with him, like in the...Read more »
No, but it's a good lesson in doing a background check and knowing the person you're about to intimate with. And as the other lawyers suggest, the "other woman" may be dragged into a nasty divorce .....
Well, as an attorney noted this was posted from Louisiana. The good news is that as it appears the child's father - whether or not he's the biological father sounds to be irrelevant from what you've written - it sounds like the father and the child's primary residence is in...Read more »
My child is 10 and she, her mother and myself reside in Effingham County Georgia. The mother will rarely let my daughter visit me, so I would like court ordered visitation or joint custody. The mother is not a fit parent. She has been arrest every year since 2012, several DUIs (some with my child... Read more »
The law changed some time ago regarding the procedures related to legitimization of a child and your acknowledgment may fall within the old law. At any rate, your issue really is a procedural one. That's where a lawyer comes in. You can spin around trying to figure it out, or pay someone a...Read more »
You may consider filing a Petition to declare the child a delinquent. Talk to a competent attorney, many will charge a fee for a consult. But it is certainly worth it to have direction and options even if you don't retain the attorney.
We have been living with MIL who is controlling and under minds/ignores our parenting, as a result our daughter (prek age) gets confused and acts out a lot more if the parenting was left to her actual parents. My wife feels obligated to stay even though it stresses her/everyone out being here. We... Read more »
Uh, you should not just leave the State with a child, even if there's not a pending action. Jurisdiction lies where a child has lived for the past 6 months.... it's the "Home State" of the child with all the attendant legal ramifications.

Your question involves a legal concept called, "standing." You don't have standing under the facts you've outlined to interfere with the father's parental rights. But if by "mistreating" you mean neglect, then perhaps you may talk to DFCS if the facts are...Read more »
I agree with the other attorneys. The Court's going to want to know a lot about this difficult situation and you walking into the Courtroom and skipping down "babble street" is an almost certain trip to no-go.
dfcs came to my house two weeks ago with false allegations of drug use and cleanliness.the investigator had already been to my son School said she saw their concerns with him but I refused the drug test.prior to all of this happening, I had placed my son with his paternal grandmother until I could...
