Q. I have obtained custody of my nephew 7/2016 from VA and am currently living in NC . I attempted to call court where
A: An attorney would need to see the language of the Court Order, before giving you definitive advice. If the Order was entered in VA, then the VA court would need to modify that order. A case is not "closed" until the child turns 18 years old, so something is off here. It may be that because you were given custody, the CPS case was closed. In either event, it sounds like the court order needs to be modified, if there was one. If there was no court order, and CPS just allowed you to act as the child's placement, then we'd need to see where things stand with CPS. There must be a court order somewhere, addressing who has legal custody of the child, if its not one/both of his parents (which needs to be modified, in order for you to give custody to your mother). If there isn't an order, then one needs to be obtained. Consult with a family law attorney, who is familiar with CPS cases, about what your options are. If you can find any paperwork related to the matter, provide that paperwork to the attorney to review.
Q. My mom was named her husbands will. She passed before he did. The Will was never changed. Who inherits what was left her
A: It depends on what his Will states. It most likely said that she inherits, only if she survives him, and if she does not survive him then _________ gets what she would have gotten. Unless you have a copy of the Will, you won't know who is designated in that blank space.
Q. Are hand written wills legal in North Carolina,
A: Yes, so long as the entire Will is handwritten by the Testator, and signed by the Testator (the one writing the Will). There is no requirement that it be signed by any witnesses.
Q. I have primary custody, ex wants 50/50
A: It is possible for him to get 50/50. He would need to notify you of his schedule, as soon as he gets it, and if you were willing to work with him on some flexibility, it could work. There are many factors which would go into deciding whether 50/50 is in your child(ren)'s best interest, other than one's work schedule. I would advise you to at least have a consultation with a family law attorney, to go over the other relevant facts of your case, before making a decision on whether you want to hire an attorney to go to court, or to negotiate on your behalf.
Q. Got dna test found out child is another mans. child has other mans name and man is on BC what do i do
A: He needs to file an action for paternity and legitimation, and possibly file an action for custody, depending on the circumstances.
Q. Do I need a lawyer in my county or the county where the baby will be born to discuss and establish paternity?
A: You can legitimate at child, by doing one of the following: 1. The child will automatically be legitimate and you will go on the birth certificate, if you and the mother are married prior to the child's birth. 2. You can file an action for legitimation at any time prior to the child's 18th birthday (assuming the child has not been adopted by someone else before you file). Once legitimated, the birth certificate will be amended to add you. 3. You can marry the mother after the child's birth, and the child will then become legitimate, and you will be placed on the amended birth certificate. After birth, you could sign and file an Affidavit of Parentage. This must also be executed by the mother, if you are to be placed on the child's birth certificate. After birth, you could file for paternity (not the same as legitimation). After birth, you and the mother can enter in to a Parenting Agreement, or you could file an action for custody/visitation, regardless if the child has been legitimated or if you have established paternity. You can file custody in any county in North Carolina; however, it is best to do it in a county where either parent resides.
Q. I would like to file a motion to have my child support motion forgiven.
A: Honestly, you can certainly ask the court to forgive the arrears, but it is doubtful that it will happen. Visitation and child support are 2 separate issues. If you wanted a better relationship with your daughter, then you should have pushed hard for a custody order and then enforced its terms via contempt charges on your ex if necessary. The fact still remains that the child deserved financial support from both of her parents, and whatever money you withheld (for whatever reason) means her mother was under more of a financial burden as a result.
Q. How do I obtain temporary custody of out of state child in NC?
A: Short answer is "yes". With that said, there are a lot of variables, depending on the following: Why does the mother live in Missouri and the father lives in North Carolina? How long has each lived in his/her respective state? How old is the child? What does the child want? Is the child in school? Was the child with father, when he committed the felony? What type of life would the child have with each parent? What are the parent's support systems? Why does father have child here? Why did the moving parent move? Who has been the child's primary caregiver? For how long? What has each parent done with the child, historically? How long have the parties been separated? This list goes on...
Q. Mother has been TPR (terminated parental rights) and took kids from a home knowing she has no rights? dad full custody
A: That would be kidnapping. The father should contact law enforcement.
