I am the non custodial parent, I went to my children's school today to request a copy of their records, attendance, report cards, enrollment form, etc. I provided ID. as well as my custody orders specifically showing where I was entitled to all records... Read more »
My rights were involuntarily terminated due to "abandonment". I wasn't properly notified, although they have my address and the mother lied and said she didn't know where I was. I have not seen my children in 7 years but she did ask over the years if I wanted to visit. I just didn't
I have full custody of both my children and my mother causes trouble she is a stalker and a sociopath. She threatens to take custody and every weekend she calls to try to have the cops throw me in jail or Whitfield but they can not do either because I am doing nothing wrong I am not a threat to...

I sighed my coustady over to the fathers father (grandfather) at the age 17 I never told my mother is that leagal my mom didn’t sighn anything nor my father I need to know if I had the right in the state of Mississippi to do that
It really depends on the facts. Did the father have the opportunity to sign or appear at a custody matter? Was the custody change approved by a judge? You'll need to get with an attorney to answer these and more questions.

You need to get with an attorney ASAP. As a father, you have certain rights that it looks like she is trying to limit. I'd be curious to see what sort of papers that she showed you, as well as whether they were signed by a judge. That being said, if custody or visitation was never established,...Read more »
I live in Mississippi. I have a 3 year old with my ex husband. I got married to my mew husband on June 22 2018. My ex filed for contempt of court on August 14 2018 that i am cohabitating with a live in boyfriend (my husband). Also on the contemp of court papers he put my now married name on them.
My brother is 10, I’m 30, my biological mother is raising him. It has come to my attention she is no longer fit to care for him! She has a long history of drug use, in fact she has lost all 3 of her older children due to drug use and went to jail for manufacturing meth when my brother was 18... Read more »
She is having behavioral issues at home with me. She has always live with me. Never with him. Asked her dad for her to stay with him, she had to change schools, he lives in a different city. It has been a week since she left. Is that grounds for him to stop child support to me?
I’ve never been proven unfit as a paramount custody parent but 2 of my children’s mother has tried three time to take me back to court for a change of custody. How many times with a court allow her to do this when she never has a valid reason for a change other than she just wants them to live... Read more »
My parents hired a lawyer & filed emergency custody of my children b/c one of my exes lied & said I abandoned them with him b/c he got in a fight w/my son  (note, he is not the bio dad, but offered for them to stay with him for a weekend til I got moved into a new place). I have had... Read more »
This depends on large part on what the emergency custody orders say, particularly with regard to visitation. If this is a youth court matter, then the goal is reunification of the family. If, however, it is in chancery court, then you face an even harder battle. Your best bet is going to be to...Read more »
My wife and I were granted durable physical and legal custody of our grandson after 13 months during which the father died of an overdose and the mother failed the courts instruction in every way. There was no visitian granted but parental rights were not terminated. What rights does the parent... Read more »
It really depends on what your endgame is. If you want custody over your grandson, then you will need to petition the chancery court, and show that it is in your grandson's best interest that you be granted custody. I'm assuming, though, that this is a youth court matter, which has quite...Read more »
Well... as to the custody part, it is incredibly hard to modify custody, as it depends on whether there has been a material change in circumstances that negatively impacts the child, and whether the judge would believe that it would be in the child's best interest to modify custody. As to the...Read more »
The child's mother has refused the father visitation rights many many times over the last 15 years and has given her son to his father and now is threatening to take the son if the father does not pay her $50 a week to keep their son
No. With the way that child support works, it follows the child wherever the child lives. Your husband's best bet is going to be to get with an attorney to modify custody, as well as child support, siting the fact that the child now lives with his father and that the mother is threatening to...Read more »
