Q. My 16 year old son came to me and said he doesn't want live with his mom anymore. Does he have a say?
A: No. However, should you pursue a modification action, you may also file a motion for the Court to authorize an in camera testimony of the minor child as to his preference. So a minor cannot just be brought to Court to express his time-sharing preference but a Court may allow such testimony based on a properly filed Motion. I suggest that you consult with an attorney on the best course of action after addressing all the pertinent facts. All the best.
Q. i have a child with someone in fl, in a new relationship and have a newborn. Can we move for a better job opportunity?
A: Based on your post, it appears that you will be able to move as the father of your first child has no rights to the child. However, please be aware that in the event he files a paternity action within 6 months of your move, you may be required to return the child to Florida.
Q. Can the father of my children take my kids without a court order?
A: Based on your post, by default you have all the time-sharing rights and all the decision-making authority over your children. Until the Father pursues an action for paternity, he has no rights to the children. Should the Father remove the children from your care, you should pursue an Emergency Verified Motion for Child Pick-Up Order. All the best.
Q. What lawyer would help deal with a name change problem?
A: A family law attorney should be able to assist. Good luck!
Q. Me and the father of my child are not married, but are living together,can I legally move to another city/state with her
A: Yes, you may since by default, the mother of a child born to unmarried parents has all the time-sharing rights and decision-making authority over the child. The father has no rights until he pursues a paternity action. However, if the father files a paternity action within 6 months of your out of state move, the Court may require you to return the child to Florida. All the best.
Q. I have shared parental rights but the mom is refusing to let me see what child. What can I do? Thanks
A: Your post is not clear as to what exactly the mother is refusing to do. However, if there is a parenting plan with time-sharing schedule currently in place and the mother has violated the term(s) of that parenting plan, then you should pursue a Motion for Contempt/Enforcement. I also suggest that you review the Order that is at issue to see if the Order requires a specific course of action to be taken prior to bringing the matter before the Court. It would truly serve your interests to have an attorney review all the pertinent documents and advise you accordingly. All the best.
Q. Do I have to fill out the mom's section of income in a child visitation/support case?
A: It appears from your post that you are referring to a financial affidavit in a paternity action. When you file your action for paternity with the financial affidavit, that financial affidavit should reflect your monthly financial snapshot - it should contain your income and such. When the mother is served with this action, she will also have to complete her own financial affidavit. If the mother does not work, at the very least minimum wage would be imputed to her for child support calculation purposes. All the best.
Q. My son has two children with a lady he did not marry. Do we have any grandparent rights to see the children?
A: No, you do not. Unfortunately, unless the parent(s) allows you contact with the children, you do not have standalone rights to the children. However, in order for your son to have rights to his children, he would need to pursue an action for paternity; otherwise, by default, it is the mother of the children who were born out of wedlock who is the parent with all the rights and decision-making authority over the children.
Q. I have 50/50 custody of my children. As per the parenting plan I get them every Sunday at 4pm but their mom
A: You should consider pursuing a Motion for Contempt/Enforcement. Good luck!
