Yes. There are no rules that prohibit a disabled person from being subpoenaed. A disabled person would be entitled to the appropriate accommodations; perhaps testifying by video or access to a service dog.

You do not mention if you have been to court for paternity. If you have then you need to apply to that court for relocation. If you have never been to court for paternity (or child support) then the mother has 100%rights to do what she wants, with the child, including moving.
My daughter is on her second probation for domestic violence against us. We have tried therapy in the past yet and know she does not respond to it. The judge order us the victims to attend therapy with someone we are genuinely afraid of. I asked for a review and the judge told us if I refuse... Read more »

You do not say whether you have ever been to court to establish paternity. If the answer is yes then you can return to the court that established paternity and ask for timesharing. If the answer is no then mom had the legal right to move wherever she wants. You will need to file for paternity and...Read more »

Child support is the right of the child so legally you cannot waive it. I would suggest trying to reach an agreement with dad first. If he insists on child support if the move happens then you have the options of 1. not agreeing to the relocation and 2. pursuing back child support against him as I...Read more »
I am 17 years old and a citizen of The United States. When I was 8 my custody was granted to my mom when she got divorced. Later she immigrated to the United States and brought me along. She now bought me a plane ticket and are forcing me to go back to My dad who lives in China. Does she have the... Read more »
You would have to consult with an expert on the laws of China to determine whether your father could "refuse to accept" you. But if your mother has custody of you she can, until you reach the age of majority, require you to take the flight.
I am a 17 year old living with my grandmother in a trailer/rv park. She does not have legal custody or guardianship of me, as she moved to get me out of a bad situation. She is now kicking me out with no where to go because she doesnt like me as a person. I have lived with her for 3 month approx.... Read more »
In FL, they do "timesharing" and I have seen things that say what the courts consider when making those decisions. What i am wanting to know is how can I get enough timesharing that the child lives with me and I am not on child support? I want the mother to have visitation but ultimately the child... Read more »
Sorry, but unless you can find a circuit court judge in your area who is willing to give you full custody you will probably never be able to avoid paying some reasonable amount of child support to the mother of your child. FYI, judges rarely award full custody to either parent--unless there is some...Read more »

It wouldn't make much sense to seek a TRO after she moves and takes the child with her because at that stage you would be seeking to restrain her from doing something she would have already done. Find a family law attorney and file for temporary orders immediately.

You need to review the child support order. If it is from PR then you need to consult with an attorney in PR. In Florida when a minor turns 18 and has finished high school they are emancipated and no longer subject to the court's supervision, meaning that they are an adult and can move wherever...Read more »
