Legal Answers
116 Questions Answered
Q. Can my girlfriend that lives with me but not married take our kids without convent and not say where she took them?
A: The universal principle in effect is that absent a family/matrimonial court order of custody, the parents are free to go anywhere they want at any time they want. The owe an accounting to no one. However, once parents appear in a court to obtain an order of custody and visitation, then all the obligations and responsibilities change dramatically. Lawyers are often accused of peddling snake oil: selling services no parent needs. Instead, it is very goo advice to get an order of custody at the first sign of problems in a relationship to prevent a parental abduction which without a court order is not an abduction at all.
Q. Reason being he didnt find out he had a daughter out there until OCY contacted him and she was already in the system.
A: The key to adjusting and modifying any child dependency matter is to convince the child protective apparatus to go along with an idea to keep the child under the government's supervision while the biological father raises the child the best he can. Without further information, we cannot opine: is dad on the birth certificate, what was the original dependency claim the state made, and what is the age of the subject child?
Q. Can cys threaten to make all urine test positive? If you test or not.
A: Phrased another way, is the question can CPS default or impute a positive refused drug test? Yes they can and so can the judge in the case.
