Because she is a minor. Anytime a minor is listed on court documents it’s “by and through” the parent of the minor. The age of majority in Alabama is 19, so she has to have her mothers name on the documents.
When the mother of the child died he lost all touch with reality and the aunt of the child took custody he has since came back to reality and wants nothing more than to have his child back how can he get the child back from the aunt
How long has it been? How long has she had custody? You may not be able to get the child back. You just can’t walk in and out of a child’s life like that. They need stability. But you need a lawyer. Go talk to a family law attorney as soon as possible.
Yes you can get in trouble for running away. Call DHR and file a report and they will investigate. If there are terrible living conditions they will remove the child and put them with the neatest suitable relative or foster care if there are no suitable relatives.
You need to provide more information before we attempt an answer. Such as, what is the Order for? When was it filed? Were you served? Is it a modification or original divorce? Please provide more information. Thank you.
And verbally abuse me. I did a protection order but he held me hostage so I couldn’t go he also threaten me If I go back that he will hurt me and take our child. How can I collect child support and not let him be around my child? He sell drugs and is not a stable person.

He does not have the right to bother you during your pregnancy. Contact him one last time and tell him if he bothers you again you will have him arrested. And then stop all contact. If he bothers you again call the police and have him arrested. When you go to the hospital and have the baby, do not...Read more »

He absolutely does not want to go see her She abandoned him for 5 months then pops back up here and there saying we are going to court but he hasn’t left me in over a year now and She is currently out on bond for 2 counts of trafficking drugs, A stolen gun, and paraphernalia.
No. This is the question I get asked the most because everyone thinks there is. They are allowed to testify in a court proceeding to tell the judge their desired wishes, but it is ultimately up to the judge and the best interest of the child. And unfortunately that sometimes goes against the...Read more »
