Legal Answers
78 Questions Answered
Q. Can I move out of state with the child if both parents signed a noterized custody agreement giving me custody
A: The signed and acknowledged agreement must do more than give "custody." It must specifically state that relocation is agreed upon, and to bolster its validity, the agreement should include a visitation plan for the stay-behind parent. There should also be a passport authority statement in the agreement with provisions for how the stay-behind parent can access that passport for his international trips with the child. The message here is that one-sided agreements whether notarized or not will always fail, and agreements that have mutual benefits for both parents will always withstand court scrutiny.
Q. Does 3 non consecutive weeks of vacation access for both parents mean 1 week time frames or 21 days as the parent wants
A: We would need to see the order to determine exactly what the order says. If all it says is three non-consecutive weeks, then either parent can choose any three weeks, and conflicts resolution should be included in the order: priority in rotating years.
Q. Should an unwed mother file for sole custody as a preventative measure?
A: No. The mother's better course is to do nothing. If the father petitions, then the fights begin. The mother should not start a confrontation when one is not needed.
