My Boyfriend Is Having A Tough Time With His Ex Wife Following Their Parenting Plan.?
His Ex Wife Is Getting Remarried In A Few Weeks (My Boyfriend Likes Her New Husband,Thinks He Is A Nice Guy) But She Is Making Changes In How And When The Kids Are Picked Up, Who Is Able To Watch Them, And Telling Him He Needs To Change His Job To Work Better With Her New Schedule. Because Of The Time Of Day That He Has To Be At Work It Is Difficult For Him To Hold His Ground.
I Knew Them Both As A Couple Before We Started Dating And Its Sad To Say But She Is A Very Selfish Person And Is So Wrapped Up In Her New Husband Now That The Kids Schedules With Each Of Them Is Being Changed To Benefit Her Time With Him. She Has Even Violated The Plan And Had Him Stay Over Night With The Kids There, She Has Already Moved Him In Before They Are Married, And Wants Her Future Husband To Be Able To Keep The Kids At Night While She Is At Work, Which They Have Told Their Dad They Are Not Comfortable With Anyone Putting Them To Bed Besides Him And His Ex Wife.
Is There Anything Legally He Can Do At This Point Without Paying An His Attorney Again. She Drained Him During The Divorce And He Is Just Now Getting Back On His Feet.
If the court administered a parenting plan then he should make her stick with it. She sounds controlling and he does not have to put with that - simply return to court and get it all written down.
You should stay out of it and let them parent even though I know you mean well but she will just make his life more miserable if she thinks you are involved with his/her kids. Just be supportive to him and listen and help him. You can let her know (if she asks) that she is boss/mother of the kids and your only interest is that the kids not be damaged.
She does not sound very smart if she wants to bring a new man into her kids life before the kids feel safe and comfortable with her new husband to be - but there is not much you or him can do about that. He should let his know that he wants to communicate with them all the time - and the kids not liking him is not enough reason for the courts to be involved unless he is hurting them mentally or physically the courts won't do much.
My parents and step parents were smart enough to put "the children" first and now I'm proud to say I have 2 great parents and 2 great step parents.
Why Do People Believe Its Illegal To Give Legal Advice If You Are Not A Bar Certified Attorney ?
Abraham Lincoln For Example, Gave Legal Advice. He Never Passed Any Bar Exam Though. He Did Not Even Go To Law School. He Was Self-Taught. And Yes, They Did Have Law Schools And Bar Exams In The 1800S.
In Lincolns day, as you may have heard, it was also illegal to own slaves. Laws change, and these days, it is illegal to practice law (charge a fee for legal advice) unless you have passed the state's bar exam. You do not always have to go to formal school, a few states do allow one to simply sit the exam. But you do need to pass the exam.
What Kind Of Rights Does A Father Have Over A Child That Was Born Out Of Wed Lock. This Is A Tn State Issue, So If You Know First Hand In Tennessee That Would Be Great! My Friend Wants To Know If She Is Able To Leave Her Lousie Boyfriend And Move To A Different State With Their 3 Month Old Baby. They Were Never Married, And He Has Another Kid. I Know That Marriage Custody Says You Can Not Leave The State With Out The Fathers Permission, But Do The Same Rules Apply If You Were Never Married? Btw Yes His Name Is On The Childs Birth Certificate!
Where a child's parents were never married, most states provide that the child's biological mother has sole physical custody unless the biological father takes steps to have himself considered for custody. Those steps include obtaining a court's finding of paternity and filing a petition for custody. In some states, this is a bifurcated (two-step) process; in others, the two steps are combined. An unwed father usually cannot win custody from a mother who is a good parent but he may have priority over other relatives, foster parents, or strangers who want to adopt his child.
The government must provide a child's unwed parents with the opportunity to step forward if it is seeking custody. In Stanley v. Illinois (405 U.S. 645, 92 S. Ct. 1208, 31 L. Ed. 2d 551), in 1972, the U.S. Supreme Court held that under the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment, an unwed father was entitled to a hearing to determine his fitness as a parent before the state could obtain custody of his children following their mother's death.
Criteria for Custody Awards
There is much debate about the criteria the courts use in awarding permanent physical custody in cases where two biological parents disagree. Noncustodial parents of both genders have long charged that judges' decision making is arbitrary and does not focus on the child. In response to this criticism, many states have adopted a standard that places primary emphasis on the best interests of the child. The challenge for courts in the 1990s was objectively interpreting the standard in the absence of meaningful guidelines.
Policies of the past offer little guidance. Before the late 1800s fathers had sole rights to custody, because custody was closely tied to inheritance and property law. Mothers had no such rights. Beginning in the nineteenth century courts began to award custody of young boys and of girls of all ages solely to mothers on the presumption that mothers are inherently better caretakers of young children.
Until 1970 most states encouraged or allowed this maternal preference, also called the tender years doctrine, and mothers almost always received custody. Eventually, many state courts found this preference to be unconstitutional, and gender-neutral custody statutes replaced maternal preference standards in forty-five states by 1990. A catalyst for this change was Reed v. Reed (404 U.S. 71, 92 S. Ct. 251, 30 L. Ed. 2d 225 ), a noncustody case in which the Supreme Court ruled that the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment prevents courts from basing opinions on generalizations about either gender.
A 1994 study by the American Bar Association of divorces in Utah showed that after maternal preference in divorce cases was declared unconstitutional in that state in 1986, the number of mothers who received sole custody decreased, the number of joint legal custody awards increased, and the number of specific visitation schedules increased. The researchers concluded that although the proportion of fathers who received sole custody did not necessarily go up, the net result was more involvement by fathers after divorce.
No straightforward criterion has replaced the simple—although unconstitutional—presumption that children belong with one gender or the other. The decisions that result are often inconsistent and are viewed as arbitrary by many participants. Ultimately, the judge decides the child's future, and not many guidelines are provided to ensure that the decision is objective.
Nevertheless, courts have instituted some mechanisms to determine a child's best interests. Guardians ad litem (caretakers "for the lawsuit") or friends are sometimes appointed to represent the child's interests and to advocate in court on the child's behalf. Custody evaluations may be ordered, in which court services personnel visit each parent's home and evaluate each parent's plan for caring for the child. The fact that one parent has been the child's primary caretaker is often considered but is not enough to guarantee a custody award.
Do Thay Have Court Apointed Lawyers For Family Court Matters?
A judge may appoint an attorney ad litem for a minor. Otherwise, you are in civil court and lawyers are only appointed in criminal cases.
What Is The Scope Of Compensation For Personal Injury In Thailand?
In the case of personal injury cases, usually the court assumes the situation of the claimant had the injury not occurred. Usually, this involves compensation medical expenses and damages for lost earnings, including current and future. In some cases when the courts could not determine or define the extent of consequences caused by the injury at the time of judgment, they may reserve the right to revise their decision for a period not exceeding two years. Also, the courts usually award damages for tangible and actual losses as opposed to “intangibles” such as pain, trauma and suffering, emotional shock, etc.

Thank You Too All Those With Serious And Adult Answers!
Caveat: I am not licensed as either a barrister or solicitor in Canada.
1) You are apparently a business owner. Turn the question over to your insurance company and let them deal with the question of liability. That is what you pay them for.
2) You are apparently a business owner: If someone came into your store, and said "I would like <insert name of your product> for free, what would you think? I somehow doubt that you would say "sure, take $150 or $200 worth for free".
When you ask an attorney, barrister, solicitor, advocate, etc.. for free advice, that is the same thing. The only thing that a barrister or solicitor has to sell is his/her time and professional expertise. To answer your question, they need to investigate the facts and then give you an answer that can be relied on. To do otherwise is professional negligence.
I urge you to contact your local solicitor or barrister, but don't expect free advice. Free advice is often worth exactly what you pay for it.
