Q. I have residential custody and my son(16) refuses to come back from his mothers house in another state, can I force him?
A: I hate to say this, but . . . it depends. It *appears* your son's absence from Tennessee is temporary and for less than six months, so jurisdiction should still lie with Tennessee and you will need to file something in a Tennessee court. As there was a prior "removal" of the child from his mother by the state, it sounds like there was a prior dependency and neglect case. If that's true and if there was a finding of Dependency & Neglect against the mother and not against you, you have a serious advantage in court. In that case, if it was in Tennessee then it would likely have been in a Juvenile Court that still has original and exclusive jurisdiction over the matter. As to what can be done, you need to contact a lawyer local to you with the relevant experience. If you're in middle Tennessee, someone like Attorney Amanda Thonton should be able to help you or refer you to someone else depending on the overall facts of your case. In any event, find a lawyer close to the court with jurisdiction who also has experience practicing in front of those magistrates/judges. And do something as quickly as feasible. The longer you go without asserting your rights, generally the worse things can get in custody disputes
Q. Can Dcs legally make u separate from ur husband and threaten to take your kids away if you don't file a ppo on ur husban
A: It *sounds* like this is in the early stages of CPS involvement, in which case the Department of Children's Services merely needs to show there is "probable cause" to prevent your husband from having contact with your children, in the interest of keeping your children safe. It also sounds like a no contact order might have been issued by a court preventing your husband from having contact, in which case, for now . . . it might be best to choose your children over your husband. Caveat, these are just my gut reaction thoughts based on what little information was provided. You NEEEEED to consult with an attorney experienced with dependency and neglect proceedings. I'd recommend you contact the Juvenile Court of Obion County and ask for a list of attorneys who take appointments on D&N cases (hopefully you'll get at least a short list). Start there, and let them help.
Q. If a custody order for full custody in TN is issued in 2019 and someone tries to get custody in ky. Doesnt Tn have juris
A: To modify custody and the question is which state has jurisdiction, the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act (UCCJEA) will provide the needed guidance. One way that KY could acquire jurisdiction over the matter is if the child(ren) resided in KY for the six months immediately preceeding the filing of a petition seeking to modify previously ordered custody. HOWEVER, if there is a jurisdictional issue brought to the court in KY the court there may be required to contact the TN court that exercised jurisdiction to determine if (1) jurisdiction lies solely with KY, or (2) TN may still exercise jurisdiction, and if TN may exercise jurisdiction, whether TN wants to release jurisdiction to KY because it is now a more convenient forum.
