Can Anyone Think Of Good Reasons Why Adoption Laws...?
Can Anyone Think Of Good Reasons Why Adoption Laws Must Be Different In Every State Of The U.S.? Wouldn'T It Make More Sense To Have Federal Adoption Laws That Could Be Consistent?
Thank You For Your Thoughts On This Topic.
The federal government is (supposed to be) for the regulation of commerce and relationships among the states. Since adoptions take place within the states, there is no good (read: "constitutional") for the federal government being involved.
It is, then, a by-product of our federalist system. Like drinking ages, speed limits on highways, alcohol sales, marriage laws, and so many other state governed laws, having the federal government regulate this would be viewed as an encroachment on the sovereignty of states.
The federal government has tied tax dollars to following federal guidelines (ala drinking age, for instance, and speed limits), and in that way has managed to make some things more uniform. But I strongly suspect there is little interest in tying tax dollars to a uniform adoption system.
I do think consistency would be really good in this area. But it's hard to see how we might make that work in a federal system.
Emotional Struggle With Legal Questions. . .?
Me And My Current Boyfriend Have Been Together For A Really Long Time. We Broke Up For A Couple Of Weeks And I Truly Thought We Weren'T Ever Going To Get Back Together. I Made The Biggest Mistake Of My Life And Had Sex With Another Guy. He Used A Condom The First Time And The Second Time He Pulled Out. I Was Really Really Wet (I Couldn'T Think Of A Polite Word.) And So It Worries Me That I Might Have Been Ovulating? A Very Short Time After That, Me And My Current Boyfriend Got Back Together. I Had No Symptoms Of Pregnancy Or Anything Before We Got Back Together. My Boyfriend And I Decided We Wanted A Child After Working Out Our Differences And Having A Long Talk. We Then Tried For Many Days To Conceive (About A Week Or A Little Over A Week Before My Period Was Due.) I Took A Pregnancy Test And It Came Out Positive. Could It Be The Other Guy'S? And Yes, My Boyfriend Does Know About All This And He Is There For Me. We Are Together And Will Be Unless The Baby Is Not His. Do You Guys Think I Have Anything To Worry About?
If It Is The Other Guy'S;
-What Last Name Do I Give The Baby? (I Don'T Want To Use My Last Name Because I Recently Found Out That My Dad Isn'T My Real Father And I Don'T Want To Keep Passing On That Name, I Feel Awkward Enough Using It Myself)
-Can I Give The Baby The Other Guy'S Last Name Without His Permission?
-Do I Put Him On The Birth Certificate? (There Is No Possibility Of Anyone Else.)
-If I Do Will He Need To Sign It?
-My Boyfriend Decided To Tell All His Friends And Family Anyway So I'M Guessing They Will Be At The Hospital, How Will I Deal With This If The Baby Isn'T His?
-Any Other Advice?
I Feel Terrible About The Mistake I Made, And I Assure You, He Has Made His Fair Share Too. I Don'T Want To Be Judged, It'S Not Like I Cheated On Him. And No, I'M Not Going To Be Ghetto And Go On Maury. I'M Going Through A Really Tough And Emotional Time Right Now, So Please No Harsh Comments. (I'M 17 Weeks And 2 Days Pregnant.)
The Other Guy Doesn'T Really Want To Be A Father But Says If It Is His, He Will Do What He Has To Do.
My Last Period Was July 3Rd. Me And The Other Guy Had Sex About A Week To A Week And A Half After That. My Current Boyfriend And I Had Sex A Few Days After That With No Protection, Trying To Conceive.
Also My Edd Is April 11Th.
My Current Boyfriend Does Not Want To Raise This Child As His Own If Its Not His, And I Don'T Blame Him. So That'S Out Of The Question.
Yes This Is A Repost, Hopefully More Answers. :(
Due date April 11th suggests conception date July 18th or so.
Period July 3rd, suggests ovulation (if 28-day periods and regular) of about July 17th or 18th. Pretty good agreement.
However, a "week and a half after" and "a few days after that" there's no telling who's the daddy until the baby is tested. It seems that your bf is more likely, but time will tell.
it's a simple test - they swab your mouth, the baby's mouth, and one or more fathers' mouths; send the swabs away, and for a few hundred bucks they'll tell you with 1 in 10 million accuracy who's your daddy. Note that unless the swabs are done by a licensed medical tech who checks everyone's ID, the results are not admissible in court. However, given the answer, unless they think you pulled a fast one on him, who's going to demand a legal test too?
I'm pretty sure you can put whatever name you want on the birth certificate. Most single mothers find it more convenient to use their own last name. It avoids a bit of confusion at schools etc. It's not like he has a copyright to the name "Smith" or whatever if you decide to use that. If you want to, use your mother's last name and eventually change yours legally too.
Not sure how long you can wait to finalize the birth certificate, since a DNA test can take a week or so. BTW, if you can find the blood type of the two daddys and your own, the hosital might be able to give you a rough guess almost immediately if the baby's blood type can rule out one daddy. There's a 50-50 chance it can, unless they have the same blood type.
Worst case, you give the bf's information then ask to change the results and/or do legal name changes when the tests come back. For that, I don't know.
You can put him on the birth certificate or not, I suppose. You can do what you want. He doesn't have to be anywhere near the hospital, or even in the country... What difference does it make? One way or another, he'll know. Your child will probably want to know. If you go after him for support, or he wants the child to know their father, does it really matter what's on the certificate? The court will determine who's the real daddy legally, and what happens in terms of support and visitation if you don't come to a friendly agreement.
If the bf told his family, and didn't tell them the big "But...", that's his problem to deal with. After all, unless the kid comes out the wrong color, what difference does it make? Who will know until the tests come back? For a week or two everyone will think there's a new addition to the family. By then, you probably won't see any of them again anyway and the bf will ahve filled them in with the news.
I found the following link - you have 45 days to amend a birth record in Minnesota, for example. your state may be different.

What'S The Difference Between A Legal Separation And Divorce?
Do They Both Entail Legal Filings? Why Would You Choose One Over Another?
Legal separation is an option that married couples can turn to when they have major problems in their relationships.It is the act of living separate lives without divorcing. It is an opportunity that gives each partner time to decide what they really want, to work though issues, and to try to patch up their problems. Legal separation can sometimes fix relationships, and it may also reinforce the need for divorce.
Divorce or dissolution of marriage is the ending of a marriage before the death of either spouse.A divorce must be certified by a court of law, as a legal action is needed to dissolve the prior legal act of marriage. The terms of the divorce are also determined by the court, though they may take into account prenuptial agreements or postnuptial agreements, or simply ratify terms that the spouses have agreed on privately. Often, however, the spouses disagree about the terms of the divorce, which can lead to stressful (and expensive) litigation. A less adversarial approach to divorce settlements has emerged in recent years, known as mediation, an attempt to negotiate mutually acceptable resolution to conflicts.
Legal separation does not automatically lead to divorce. The couple may reconcile, in which case they need do nothing in order to remain married. If they do not reconcile, and wish to divorce after the statutory time period, they must file for divorce explicitly.
Family Law Question When No Custody Arrangement Is In Place...?
I Am The Mother Of A 5 Year Old Girl. She Has Always Lived With Me (I Was Never Married To Her Father). Her Father Moved To Florida (I'M In Kansas) Roughly 2 Years Ago And Has Somewhat Little Contact With Her. Calls Once A Month, That Sort Of Thing. Whenever He Comes In Town, Which Has Averaged About 3 Times Per Year, I Always Let Him See Her As Much As He Wants (Which Usually Isn'T Even Half Of His Visits Home). We Recently Have Been Arguing Over Child Support Because I Told Him That I Was Filling Out A Motion To Modify Our Child Support Since It Has Never Been Reviewed And He Took A Promotion And Pay Increase When He Moved To Florida. His Girlfriend Recently Made A Comment To His Stepmother Who Is A Close Friend Of Mine That My Daughter Would Soon Be Living With Them In Florida. I'M A Nervous Wreck Because He'S In Town And I Have These Paranoid Thoughts That He'S Going To Try To Take Off With Her. I Don'T Want To Deny Him Visitation With Her, But At The Same Time, I Don'T Trust Him. His Name Is On Her Birth Certificate, But No Custody Arrangements Have Ever Been Established Through The Courts. Could He Take Off With Her Since There Is No Custody Arrangement Currently In Place? And If That Is A No-No, What Legal Ramifications Could He Face?
Absolutely not he could not just take off with her and go to florida you she has always lived with you... his wife is an idiot for thinking this is even remotely possible and making that comment... when you file the modification for child support also file a modification for custody and visitation she deserves to spend time with her dad without you worrying about him "taking her".
have him served by the sheriff and it would be easier if you did this immediately while he is in town... so he is easier to serve...go to family and probate court today or tomorrow.. it will cost you roughly $40 dollars to have him serve and free to file at probate court... you do not even nee a lawyer really.... No judge is going to take your daughter away from you.. you have friends family and proof that you have always been her main care provider and unless he can prove neglect or abuse you have absolutely nothing to fear....you also have daycare provider teacher neighbors etc that you can get letter from make sure phone numbers and addresses are on them incase they want to contact them.. who can state the type of mother you are and that your daughter is always well fed, clean, happy and cared for..a judge is not going to randomly say okay you had her long enough daddys turn so stop worrying..... what they will say however is that he deserves visitation with his daughter and arrangements should be made where she can visit him during vacations, every other holiday and part of the summers and this is something you are going to have to deal with for the next 13 years... and learn to live with... the one thing you can never ever do is make your child the spy by asking her what did dad say what did daddy and his wife do... etc
simple ask did you have fun with daddy let her answer you tell you her little kid stories and never talk crap about dad or wife where she can hear or at all if possible. The best thing you could do for your daughters sake is put aside old issues and be friends with your ex and tolerate his wife so you can be in the same room for holidays, school things, sports things and a wedding done the road years from now....as a divorced and remarried mother with 4 kids my oldest 3 are my ex husband I I am telling you this from experience and 13 years of tolerating my ex husband and a string of girlfriends as he never remarried... you will hit a point where you can actually call each other and talk calmly and be okay with it. My kids are now two girls 17 and 15 and two boys 14 and 11 good luck
