5 Questions Answered
- Q. If a parent has no job or "home" of their own, does parenting time still continue, even with overnights?
- A: If the child has a "sleeping space," (own bed or area to sleep, but most preferably a bedroom), the Court may still permit the parenting time to continue. Many people lose jobs or fall into bad situations and live with a relative. If this is weekend parenting time, the Court is more likely to leave it in place and give father some time to find his own place to live than it would be for parenting time during the week when the child needs to be fresh and ready for the school day (though this may be awarded as well).
- Q. How to inform biological father about relocating, when you don't know where he may be.
- A: You can notify by publication or seek the Court's permission to remove the child (which will also cause you to notify him when the petition is filed).
- Q. I am going through a divorce. I can't afford a lawyer or qualify for a free one I am 61 years old. Do I need a lawyer?
- A: You can certainly proceed without counsel. If you cannot afford an attorney, check with your local court to see if they have an "attorney for the day" program or legal aid to assist.
