my ex and i do not have a child visitation order in place. she is requesting that i start paying child support and is refusing to allow me visitation with our child until the court has determined support and/or visitation.
Without a court order, either parents may deny the other access to the child. I suggest you retain a family law attorney to file a complaint for custody in order to obtain a court order that grants you specific periods of time with the child. That way, if mother refuses you access the child, you may file a petition for contempt and request the court sanction her. Good luck!See question
I still live in PA and she moved to MA I need to know where do I file for visitation rights.
You file in the county where the child has resided for the past six months. Good luck.See question

You need to bring your screenshots to a local attorney and tell them the specific circumstances of your case so that you may be advised accordingly. However, that being said, Drug use is one of 16 factors a court must take into consideration when determining child custody. Good luck!See question

You need to file a petition for special relief And request the court to order that mother provide you the medication for the child and that she administer it per the doctor's instructions. I suggest you retain an attorney to do this for you, so that the best result is obtained. Good luck!See question
Custody papers haven't been filed against me yet but I got an email stating that there will be one filed against me. What can I do about it and can I still take my child with me?
If there's no custody order in effect, both parents may take the child wherever they choose. However, if there is a threat of a custody filing I strongly advise you to retain an attorney immediately to represent you in the matter.See question

This is not kidnapping or an abduction. Your daughter needs to retain a family law attorney that practices in Dauphin County and immediately file a complaint for custody requesting the return of the child or at least a custody schedule.See question
My husband and I have been separated for a little over a year now. I am currently pregnant to someone other than him. Will his name automatically go on the birth certificate? Or can I make it so neither one of their names are on it?
You fill out the information for the birth certificate, therefore you choose who's name is on it or if you would like to exclude a name.See question
I have had two dui's and they are ordering a "criminal history hearing". One was before my son was born and the other three years ago. I can not afford a lawyer. Should I defend myself at the criminal history hearing or what until the custody conf...
I strongly advise you to retain an attorney to represent you in this matter. Lancaster County judges are pretty harsh regarding multiple DUIs and a seasonEd lawyer is your best bet in these situations. A finding that you pose a risk of harm to your child may prevent you from having any contact until after a full Drug and alcohol evaluation and that could take months. good luck!See question

Custody is a very difficult legal area to navigate without an attorney. I strongly advise you to retain an attorney to represent your interests in this matter. Failure to do so may result in a father obtaining primary custody of the children purely based upon your lack of expertise in the matter and his retaining of an attorney. A lot of attorneys on AVVO are willing to help and provide payment plans in order to enable everyone to have a lawyer during this process. Good luckSee question
Her father has refused to sign the papers because I won't drop the child support case. Is there any other way I can get her passport??
If you already have a custody order, you may petition the court for special relief requesting that father sign all necessary passport papers. I suggest consulting an attorney that practices in your jurisdiction to discuss the specifics of your case. Good luckSee question
