Q. My ex husband filed a request that I pay him support. He lied and claims our children live with him. I have a custody.
A: I suggest that you obtain a copy of the custody docket, which should show that the most current order is the one from 2015. Then gather up documentation that tends to show that the children reside with you - school records, doctor's records, extracurricular activities rosters, etc. Anything that shows the children's address as yours. You would probably do well consulting with an experienced family law attorney as well.
Q. I have been indicated falsely 20 years ago. I am now in a position trying to have kinship of my 3 grand children
A: I suppose it's possible but without all the facts it's impossible to know what to tell you. You should consider consulting with an attorney experienced with CYS matters to obtain assistance in getting through this.
Q. Recieved papers in mail. Not sure what its saying. Had conference in may but refused agreement. Please help
A: You really need to discuss tyour situation with an experienced family law attorney. There is absolutely no way anyone here can help you. You need to show your paperwork to an attorney in person and should you should do so very soon.
Q. After a domestic violence case will my husband be allowed to return home?
A: I think an awful lot more information is needed before this question can be answered. If you and your husband are on decent terms, perhaps he'd allow you to discuss this with his attorney, although, if you're the victim of the abuse, that may not be permissible. have you considered going to one of the groups that assist victims of domestic abuse? They're often quite knowledgeable.
Q. Can parents forbid their child to date someone?
A: Sure they can, just as you could forbid your daughter from dating someone. They're both under 18 years of age and children in the eyes of the law.
Q. If parent 1 signs away parental rights and parent 2 dies, does parent 1 still have rights to a minor child if not adopte
A: Yes, if the parental rights were not actually terminated by the court.
Q. Can a person voluntarily give up parental rights to a child without the child being adopted by someone else?
A: Not really because it wouldn't become a court order until an adoption petition as well as a petition to terminate parental rights had been filed. If the person wanting to give up rights thinks doing so will relieve him/her of support obligations, no such luck. If this actually has to do with not being able to come back and claim custodial time with the child, that's also not going to work either.
Q. Does my ex have to pay child support for our daughter after she turns 18 but then attends college?
A: Not unless there's a written agreement that he will do so. In PA, a parent's support obligation ends upon the child's attainment of 18 years of age and graduation from high school, unless the child suffers from a serious physical or mental impairment.
Q. I have a question. My soon to be ex filed for support for our 1 son and spousal support for her. She doesn’t work..
A: It's really not possible to provide you with detailed answers because every case is different. I expect that she will likely receive both spousal and child support based solely on what you've said here. You really should sit down for a consultation with an experienced family law attorney to discuss your case in detail.
