My grand child is in NC with her father. Her mother lives in Missouri. The father was granted temporary custody due to the mother not being served in Missouri to appear in court in NC until the day of court. (which made appearance impossible). We have been traveling from Missouri to NC for the... Read more »
Short answer is "yes". With that said, there are a lot of variables, depending on the following: Why does the mother live in Missouri and the father lives in North Carolina? How long has each lived in his/her respective state? How old is the child? What does the child want? Is the child in school?...Read more »
Father has sole full legal custody and the bio mom's rights have been terminated. she went in the middle of the night and got the children 14 and 13 at the time of crime and took them through 5 county lines and refuses to return children. what is the crime here? and how does father prosecute?
He said he can’t stop or he’ll be in contempt. Can the funds be placed into an escrow account pending custody to change order petition? If not, can he sue her afterwards for overpayments?? How does that work? We are in Hendersonville, North Carolina.
Father has primary custody. I only see minor child every other weekend. She has four cavities. I told him to get them fixed. He tells me he will but never does it. I can’t take her to dentist and do not have the policy number. He denies me the information. The temporary parental order doesn’t... Read more »
The custody agreement or order (if there is one) will provide the remedy. If the father is obligated under the consent or custody order -- or under a custody agreement -- to provide orthodontics services, your lawyer can make a motion to show cause for contempt to ask a judge to force him to do...Read more »
She'll need to file an action for custody, or file to modify an existing order. Either way, she needs to get a custody order, giving her legal and physical custody of the child. If the child hasn't been in NC for at least 6 months, then she may need to get jurisdiction in NC by emergency, if the...Read more »
What can I do about not seeing or communicating with my 8 year old. And I pay 380.00 month just for him. I do not make a lot of money and I can barely take care of myself, my wife and our 4 children in the home.
In order to secure your rights to visit with your son, you'll need to file a Complaint for Custody/Visitation, and get the court to enter an order with specific days/times when you can have custody of or visit with your 8-year old. You are not legally obligated to support your wife's children, if...Read more »
She needs to enroll in school, and they wont take her unless it's signed by a judge. She's a single mom, and my family doesn't have a lot of money for a huge court payment for something that should be simple. I love my niece, so I want to know if we have options
You'll need to have a court order giving you legal and physical custody of the child. The child's father will need to also consent. First, you need to file a Complaint for Third Party Custody, and then you can submit the Consent Order to the judge to enter with the court. There are other minor...Read more »
The father has primary custody of minor child. In the Temporary Parental Order, during the summers, we have alternating custody on a two week schedule. I am having a huge surgery where bones are being taken out and bedridden for a month. I told the father a month in advanced. I have text messages... Read more »
No. The courts will not make someone exercise their time. The court will only enforce one's right to exercise his/her time with the child if they want to. Have your surgery, heal, and then resume your time with your child. Perhaps he may be willing to let you have 2 of his weeks in the future to...Read more »

We want to make sure we stay in contact with her because this is not the first time the mother has been... Read more »
He should have filed a Motion to Terminate the Child Support. If he didn't, he needs to ASAP. Anything that was owed before he got custody, he still needs to pay, unless the other party waives the right to receive it (in the form of a Consent Order).
You can, but if there if there is someone he can stay with, that might be a better idea. It also depends on his maturity level, and how and how often someone would be checking in, how far away you are going, and whether he knows what to do in an emergency. If he has another parent or someone close...Read more »
My boyfriend and his ex-wife are separated,but are not divorced as of yet. Hey do you have a mediation appointment set for the first week of August.

It is legal if she has good cause. However, likely she does not have good cause and is just using the children as a way to be vindictive. If she does not have good cause, doing what you describe her to have done will make her look bad in court and may also be a crime. Your boyfriend, needs to...Read more »
You can file in MD now, or wait until October 14th and file in NC. If NC, you would be filing for Custody (not guardianship). The parents can sign a Consent Order for Custody, which will give you what you need to take care of the child, and if their situation changes, they can file to have custody...Read more »
If the child was not yet born, you are not supposed to 'report' it on the divorce paperwork. As to rights, if you are the father - you have rights. You may have to assert your rights but you do have them.
on child support. She said that he can go to court to get joint custody. I don’t understand. How he could think to do that when he’s not even around our son, he’s with me all the time. I asked my mother about this and she said that he could. My question is even with child support going... Read more »
