It’s a dependency and neglect case opened a year ago. There have been no transcripts and finally after court last time I checked again and there are a year with of transcripts but all of the information is wrong, it even skips from 9/22 to 9/21 then back to 9/22. So there not even in order.
My 17 year old son signed a contract and was supposed to ship to Army boot camp today. I signed giving permission for him to join. I was told he was emancipated because he had officially joined the army when he signed his contract. He was a witness to a crime and was told today that he can’t ship... Read more »
Unless he is serving, he is not actually emancipated. Even then, that is a determination for the Court. A person does not automatically become emancipated when they sign a contract to serve or when they begin serving, for reasons such as these. Additionally, it would be rare for a witness to be...Read more »
It depends on what your decree says. This is an aspect generally covered in a parenting plan. If not, Colorado statute says that the exemptions are taken in proportion to income so if you each make the same amount of income, then you would alternate every year.
We have had her since she was 2 months. Her mother was using drugs and alcohol. She could not handle her. She is now 23 months old. Her mother is still homeless and unstable. She says she is not using. But unsure if that's true. Out of anger and vindictiveness she is threatening to take her... Read more »
Hes threatened Defamation Lawsuits if I expose him. I've told my mother. She's done nothing. He's now an onlyfan pimp as a hobby behind his wife's back. He also has a 14 year old daughter now. I need to know what steroids to take.
If your child's father is certain that he wants a long term change in parenting time, and the same is in the best interest of your child, the least expensive and quickest manner to achieve a Court's recognition of the change is to enter into a Stipulation to Modify Parenting Plan and...Read more »
The therapist is not required to enforce the law, and is entitled to rely on a representation made by a parent. Only one parent has to consent to therapy unless a parenting plan specifically states otherwise, which would be rare.
My ex informed me about a week before he was leaving the country that our children will be in the care of his girlfriends mother and his mother during his parenting time while he is out of the country. I convinced him to allow the boys to stay with me for some of the time but I would prefer that... Read more »
It depends on if you have a parenting plan and what it says. There is no law that governs who children stay with other than that a fit parent is presumed to be able to arrange for appropriate caregivers in his or her absence. You can try to negotiate an agreement that if the other parent is gone...Read more »
I have residential custody and there is already a parenting time plan in place, filed and approved by the courts as a result of a abuse/neglect investigation involving my wife. She moved to NC during that investigation before there was a parenting time order. She now says I'm not allowed to... Read more »
We used to have joint custody but 3 yrs ago I was given full custody and the father hasn’t been involved since that time. He is now demanding my address saying it’s his legal right to have it. Do I have to provide it?
You do not have to provide your address, BUT YOU DO HAVE TO PROVIDE THE CHILDREN'S ADDRESS. Even with you having "full custody', he maintains some rights to contact with the children. The exception may be if his parental rights have ben terminated-which is unlikely.
I was served by my child’s father after one of his visits he gave me a citation to show cause with out a “return of service” does this make it an improper serving? If it pertains to the old court order does it make it invalid?
The COlorado Rules of Service say that any person 18 years or older and not a party to the case can make service. If this is an ongoing litigation, he may be able to serve you through the courts by mail. This sounds like a contempt citation, which means you should seek an attorney as soon as...Read more »
It is essential that you comply with the court order re visitation. The order should set forth how the travel expenses should be paid. Perhaps you can ask your son's father to pay if you truly can not.
Summer schedule started last Thursday after my son got out of school. He spent the first 4 days of summer with me. The parenting plan states, "During the summer break, the parties shall exercise parenting time according to a week on/ week off equal parenting time schedule. Exchanges shall take... Read more »
It is not clear what the schedule is from your description. It is clear for 2020, but not for 2022. You could ask the court for clarification, but the court would expect you and the other parent to work this out yourselves. It does seem that you need a detailed schedule to avoid future conflicts.
My son's mother was arrested in NV for DV against me. She had a Protective Order placed on her for a month afterward. She said she wanted to see our son after the 30 days after the Protection Order ended and never showed. She made 2 arrangements with me and never showed up. The mom's... Read more »
