The parents are unmarried & recently separated. I want to make sure that the baby has same amount of time with each other. Because of the pandemic & the winter we are enduring.

I have been in a substitute parent role for the past two years. I met this guy two years ago and we became very serious, he had a 1 year old son at the time I met him and met the boy 2 weeks later. Since then the child’s mom has barely been in his life and since June of 2020 she lost her rights... Read more »
I would suggest that you hire a family law attorney so the attorney can represent your interests and better understand your situation. The mere fact that you are pregnant with twins would not generally be a reason for a judge to award 50-50 custody.
insurance and her mothers rent and taxes. They split and she only allowed him 1 hour on Sunday to see them and only what she said they can do. Now its at 2 hours but he has not seen them in 10 months. He try to call them at the assigned time she gave them but has instructed boys they dont have to... Read more »
Your son needs to hire an attorney to file a suit affecting the parent-child relationship. This will give him an enforceable order regarding visitation and child support. If the mother does not follow the court's order the Judge has the option to give your son extra visitation days to make up...Read more »

You filed as married, and you were married. Nothing inappropriate there. Even after the divorce petition is filed, you're still married until there is a final divorce decree. The stimulus payment is community property and you can spend it however you wish. Your soon-to-be ex's...Read more »
My husband and I were served with a summons/citation for modify custody by a 3rd party but the petitioner was DCCPS and petition was in this 3rd parties name. Also, mine had the official stamp and my husband's did not. The petition contained request for temp. orders, TPO, affidavit and... Read more »
I was served by citation for petition to modify parent/child relationship. I filed an "inability to pay statement" and a quick "general denial response". My intentions were to work on either an "amended or supplemental response" or "counter-petition" and then... Read more »
I am a father of 2 & my ex filed child support then she dropped them off on me & never came back to get them. I've had them since they were 2 yrs old. It's not fair to pay her child support when I raise them. How do I get rid of the child support order? I have had them over a... Read more »
You will need to file a Motion to Modify in the Court that issued the child support Order in the first place to vacate the Order requiring you to pay child support. From what you describe, you may be able to terminated the abandoning mother's parental rights.
One thing that courts consider when devising a parenting plan is how much each parent is involved with the children before the divorce, being a big part of the kids' life can have a big impact on the result of a child custody case.
That being said, the standard possession order is...Read more »
Friend, there is no other Texas. Texas as one of a kind. If you meant to ask if the other parent can remove a child from school and then enroll the child in another District and there are no Court orders at all, then either parent has the right to do that. If your child's other parent did...Read more »
If a minor's last name was changed in Georgia, but the father was living in Texas and was never notified, is there anything the father can do to reverse it? The father's address was known and he continuously paid child support but he never received notification or gave his written consent.
The answer to your question depends on Georgia law and the Georgia rules of procedure. Had this happened in Texas, the father could theoretically file a Motion for New Trial if he did so within 30 days of the date of the Judgment. If he learned about it after 30 days, he could theoretically file...Read more »

Depends. With the ex-boyfrien on the birth cerificate, there is a presumption he is the father; it is not conclusive evidence, but certainly compelling. Yhe amount of time that has transpired and the circumstances are a little suspect. Nevertheless, if you voluntarily submitted to a paternity test...Read more »
I was belittled and coerced in a court of law by a judge and the opposing parties lawyer. The judge told me even though I was denied a continuance I requested due to inadequate representation of counsel, that if I plead the fifth that she will pursue me as guilty and if I don't answer the...
