Q. Mysiswasgiven guardianshipinMt.nowshe has told me to file a change of custodywith courtshereinUt. Isthis possible?
A: The answer to your question will require more facts to answer specifically. I suggest that you consult with an attorney on this issue. Here is some general information that may be helpful: 1. Generally speaking jurisdiction over minor children falls under the UCCJEA. The UCCJEA generally provides that a state acquires jurisdiction after the child has resided there for 6 months. However, a state that issued a custody order (such as a guardianship) generally retains exclusive jurisdiction so long as the child, a parent, or a person acting as a parent resides in that state. If all such people have left the state, the case would go to the new "home state." There are exceptions to this general rule that may apply. 2. In Utah, if a guardianship is based upon consent, the guardianship terminates when the consent is revoked. If the guardianship is not based on consent, the standard is different.
Q. My son lives in Utah and has a Final Visitation Order in place from GA. It states his daughter can travel to UT from GA
A: Unfortunately, your question can't be answered with a simple yes or no. Since the Order is in place in GA and it sounds like the child and her mom remain in GA, the answer to this may depend on how GA is treating such arrangements during COVID. You may want to ask this same question in the GA section of Justia so that attorneys there can weigh in. Even in Utah, there is some variation from case to case and judge to judge. Generally speaking, I think that Utah has postured itself in favor of facilitating visitation absent an agreement or an order providing otherwise.
Q. What can be done failure to be served rule 109 with parentage petition, as well as ex statement of good joint cust pet?
A: I'm sorry that you are going through a custody fight. Custody battles are often hard fought and emotional. I will do my best to answer your questions, but I would also recommend that you seriously consider hiring an attorney to represent you. Custody determinations can have lasting effects on you and your family. As such, you would be wise to ensure it is done correctly. As far as the Rule 109 (Domestic Relations Injunction), that is an order automatically entered by the Court. As the Respondent, it is not effective upon you unless/until you are served with it. However, for the Petitioner it goes into effect immediately when signed. I don't think this would be grounds to throw out a Petition or to file a bar complaint. It just won't apply to you until you are served. Having said that, you would be wise to abide by those terms. The next question regards a "statement of goodwill." I am not sure what you are referring to in this regard. As such I don't think that I am situated to respond to this question. You will likely need to go forward and file an Answer. You will also likely want to include a counterclaim against him to set forth the relief that you are requesting.
