Visitation Issues / Re: Just starting and need help
« on: Nov 13, 2012, 02:13:27 PM »
Dad won't get an emergency hearing as there is no emergency - the kids are obviously fine and in no danger.  They will not grant an emergency hearing just because dad wants them back in his home...

Father's Issues / Re: ex me wants to sign passport?

Unless she is a serious flight risk, then yes, a judge will make you sign for a passport.  Since she has ties to the community (i.e. job, etc) you can bet on it...  Basically you are playing tit for tat and being as childish as she is.

What's to hate exactly???   You voluntarily signed the acknowledgement of parentage.  That's on you, no one else. Your opportunity to overturn parentage has LONG passed...    Get to know your son.

You never did answer how old his MT is...  That will make a big difference.

You're certain of that?


Honestly, this scenario is not unique.  And I ran it by a CASA, a GAL, and an attorney - these are their answers.
So ummm yeah, I'm fairly certain....

A judge will not take a child away from the family that it knows and give it to a person they don't know at all.  Regardless of biology.

There is also the fact that dad is out of state.  According to an attorney:
"If the state removes the child they are LEGALLY NOT ALLOWED to place the child with someone in another state without an INTERSTATE COMPACT being completed and approved by the other state. Unless and until that happens, the child will NOT be placed with someone in another state by a state agency. They can NOT do that under the law. If they did, the agency doing the placement could find themselves in major trouble legally.   An interstate compact could take several months to complete."

Best dad can hope for right now is a visitation schedule w/ an introductory period... 


Well since the support order is from Cali, means Cali has home field advantage. Unless they are willing to give up that right. And I would assume the argument could easily be made that GREAT grandparents are getting to a age where they could become unsuitable physically to raise child.

and I can use a Karma button as well.

 
Uhhh Not exactly - child support was done in CA, BUT custody/visitation was never established. Therefore, jurisdiction would be in the state of the CHILD - which is obviously AZ.  Besides - AZ CPS is involved, so it's a moot point - AZ CPS is basically the boss right now....   
Not sure what a karma button is, but have at it...

If he currently has no relationship with the child and the child is in a place where she is safe and her needs are provided for, then he is not going to get custody any time soon.   The bottom line is that dad is a total stranger to his child. The odds of him walking into a courtroom and walking back out with full or primary custody of his child are incredibly slim.  The court will be looking at the best interests of the CHILD...

This child is a human being, with feelings and emotions of her own, and he is trying to forcibly remove her from the only home she has ever known. If he is not careful, he risks ending up with a resentful, traumatized adolescent/teen who hates him and wants nothing to do with him.
 
In order to establish a relationship with the child, there are no shortcuts. He would ask for visitation rights with some reintroduction period.  Then, over the years, he might be able to increase visitation and possibly even obtain custody, but that's well down the road - if it happens at all. And he would be paying child support in the interim.

Eh - it's not just Wichita Falls (though that's a bad area).  It's Texas period.  Texas child support enforcement is a joke...
 
I live in Austin. I work in the AG's office (though not in child support, thank God).
 
It only took 14 years to get child support at all - and that was because I did ALL the research and finally found "dad" AND once found, he sent in the paperwork to have his wages garnished on his own...  For 14 years, they did exactly Nothing...  If he hadn't sent it in, I'd still be getting a big fat Nothing...  I have a friend going through the same thing.

I guess y'all missed the part where he said he hasn't seen his child in SEVEN YEARS and that he is a complete stanger to that child.
Yes - that's better.  Take her away from her family, that she knows and loves and hand her over to a man who is a complete stranger to her.  That's certainly what's best for a girl that age.....    BAER....

Father's Issues / Re: This must be Karma!
« on: Aug 29, 2011, 11:10:02 AM »
I understand this woman has put y'all through a lot.
 
However, I find it very very sad that you and your son and everyone think it is funny that this woman, who just gave birth, is taken away right out of the hospital.  I feel sorry for the baby and its mother. 
 
Seriously? What's happened to empathy and human compassion?
