No it is not true. He can petition the court for custody at any time, however he has to prove that there has been a material change in circumstances that promotes the best interests of the child in order to change custody. He’s bluffing you.

Generally, in breeding contract situations where all breeders are actively involved, siring the puppies would give you an ownership interest if that was contracted for. Usually, though, a "stud fee" is paid for the male dog's "performance" so to speak. It sounds like this...Read more »
No, under the facts as you have given them she cannot do that. On the other hand, if it turns out he did NOT have her permission, then she can, but it won't get her anything since he will then have to be spending money on a criminal defense attorney.

Hi, there is a claim called "quid pro quo" sexual harassment. This occurs when a job benefit is directly tied to an employee submitting to unwelcome sexual advances. Based on what you stated above, it sounds like your continued employment was tied to you going on a date with the...Read more »

Apparently you have not BOTH agreed. I cannot tell you how often this comes up. Someone calls me and tells me we have reached an agreement and the case is uncontested but when it comes time to sign nothing could be less true. You do not have an agreement. It does not necessarily mean her...Read more »

An Alabama attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for a week. This could be a challenging case in terms of substantiating damages. That's ordinarily done with medical documentation in injury cases. If this did not result in medical diagnosis/treatment/testing, it could be...Read more »

The legal father of the child is the man to whom the mother was married. If he never denies the child, and accepts the child as his, you cannot be held responsible for the child and you also cannot assert any right to the child. See Ex Parte Presse.

You would need to speak with an attorney in your area who handles child support in the county where your case was, in order to set up the proper payment plan in hopes of having it over sooner rather than later. The longer...Read more »

You have a good number of options in front of you,...Read more »
Yes ma’am. Contact an attorney immediately and obtain temporary custody for a dependent child (one that doesn’t have a parent to take care of them). Let her explain to the court where she’s been for the last year and a half in her daughters life.
