You need to be very careful and consider why, after what presum8is a short period of time, you are changing your position from seeking court protection from him because of your statements under oath of your fear of him, to expressing the exact opposite. You were either fabricating your statements...Read more »
A parent who has custody is presumed to be making reasonable decisions for the child, which includes care arrangements. It would be your burden to establish that his caretaker is inappropriate or a danger to the child.
I am 19 he is 21 we are parents of a 3 month old with a ton of bills and in process of buying a house I slapped him and he went to stay at his dads . My neighbor in apartment called cops I admitted to slapping him and I got a charge! I’ve never been in trouble how do we get this dropped!!
Her reason for the ungovernable charge was that I am disrespectful and I do what I want when I want. About ten days ago. She slapped me, so hard I couldn’t hear out of my ear. That entire side of my face went numb. Then I yelled at her that I hated her and hit her arm. When she called the police,... Read more »

She doesn't have a place to live, she smokes weed, and had another man in our home while the kids were there. She calls me names in front of the kids and yells at them all of time. I am trying to get custody and the grandmother said she would drive here to take care of them is that an option?
These are all issues and facts if proven are factors for the Court to consider in the best interest of the children. A parent not working is not a big factor as it is hard to relate to how that would effect the children, and in fact may be a positive for mom if it provides her more time to be...Read more »

You did the right thing. They will do an investigation. You can request kinship placement but it takes time to complete a home study and coordinate between the states.. she may be in foster care during this process.
They have to consider placement with the other parent first. Where is her...Read more »
Anyone can post the bail money for a person. But be careful interjecting in this situation. If your sister is a minor, its unlikely they would hold her on much of a bond unless the charges were serious.
No. This is not a legal question. She is your parent. When you are an adult and can support yourself, are 18 and out of high school, you can make decisions on your own, but you are also responsible for the outcome of those decisions.
Late teenage years are difficult, but your parents...Read more »

No, it diesnt but they may assign one anyways. You need to file a motion to modify but you can follow it up with a consent order signed by both parties and notarized, setting out the terms, for the judge to sign which will avoid the necessity of a hearing.
We are in NC. My wife and I have been separated and we have one child together. We didn’t want to go through court for child support and custody we have our on agreement. The people at the Medicaid office are telling my wife that she has to file for child support or our child losing Medicaid
Yes. As a parent you are primarily responsible for the needs of your child(ren) not the state or the taxpayers. If she is receiving financial assistance, from the state, the state can collect that money back from you.
