- Q. My son's father signed a paper giving away his rights so that my husband can adopt my son. Now he wants joint custody
- A: If the document met the guidelines for "consent" you need to hire counsel and file the petition for a step-parent adoption. The father will object so it will be necessary for us to prove that the consent should be enforceable. I've done this before but it's no easy task. Sincerely, Lee N. Feinberg
- Q. Can I the father take my kids with out the mother's knowledge or consent?
- A: Generally, I would say, "No" as it appears that you were never married. However, if there is a court order indicating your rights, you may be able to do something. With an order you may be able to get in on an emergency basis. If you were never married and a court never established your rights as a father, you would have a problem.
- Q. Can a mother move to another state with her child if she and the father never married and have no court agreement?
- A: If there had been no court involvement, in a word, yes. If she has been gone less than6 months, you should file a petition to establish paternity and bring her back.
