5 Questions Answered

Q. Father listed on Birth Certificate unwed and didn't sign Acknowledgement of Paternity
A: If you are not married to someone else, the father can sign the birth certificate and be listed. You need the father's consent/signature to name him as the father, unless you want to initiate legal action. If he doesn't admit paternity and sign the birth certificate- you can establish him as the legal father via a child support action or paternity action. You could seek to amend the birth certificate to name him as the father and to change the child's name.
Q. Can I go out of country for summer vacation while I am petition for family court filed? (but I'm not taking a child)
A: A pending family law action does not automatically restrict your ability to travel. You may want to file a notice of non-availability for the dates that you will be gone.
Q. If my present husband moves in with another woman while we are married, what can I do?
A: You can't legally do anything about where he chooses to live. However, if you have children together and/or you are entitled to alimony, you can seek support as of the date he left, without filing for divorce.
Q. My husband is having an affair. I got an abortion with his child before I told him. Can he use this against me in court
A: He may try to bring it up to portray you in a bad light in court,but it is not relevant to an action for dissolution.
Q. How does a court decide where a child will go to school if parents live in close, but different towns?
A: If the parents cannot agree and the decision goes to the Judge, the court will decide based on what it believes is in the child's best interest. It would probably be the school in the district of the parent with majority time sharing. I agree with the earlier answer- the parents should work together to reach a decision on the school.
