After six months, PA will take jurisdiction over a custody case. At that time, if your wife attempts to relocate out of state, you may file an emergency petition to stop her from taking your son without a court order allowing her to do so.
I agree with my colleagues. Since only a few extra days are involved, I suggest that the two you work this out rather than fight it out. There is not much to fight over here, unless I am missing something.
You've asked a lot of questions. First, alimony is the last resort when there is not enough marital property to do justice to one of the spouses. He may have to pay you something, but he doesn't have much income, so it is hard to say just what it would be or if it is appropriate..
Second, you have a tough choice with the PFA decision. If you want alimony, he has to keep his job. But it won't do you any good if you're dead, so make sure he isn't a threat to you. The police can do a lot more...
I am sorry to read of such a painful situation. The answer to your question will depend upon the schedule that your child follows and your own, and how much time you have now. You are in another state, so it might be difficult to have the child commute to give you more time. But if a different custody arrangement could work, such as longer stays over the summer with you, the court might grant your request.
Another possibility is to make the court aware of the manipulation of the child. A...
How much of a commute are you adding to the other party's time with the children? The statute requires notice be sent to the other party if the move will substantially impair the person's parenting time. A short move will not do this.
I have attached a link to a short guide that I wrote on this topic. Hope it helps. Good luck!
I agree with Ms. Costopoulos. I would also add that terminating rights might not stop this guy. He sounds like someone who will keep bothering you. You say that a PFA did not help you but did you really try to enforce it through the police? If you have a pfa against him, you should be able to stop his dropping in unexpectedly.
Ms. Goldstein is right. You left out your question. Judging from the facts that you stated, your situation needs to be handled carefully in order to get the medical information before the court as well as a proper presentation of the behaviors of the other parent. Many self-represented persons go to a hearing and present their issues in a confused manner, emphasizing facts that should be secondary and then leave out other facts that are more important. You should contact an attorney right away...
Usually the document is written so as to remain in effect regardless of the divorce process. A judge may reject an agreement but rarely does so. However, the agreement itself has to have been written to cover all the different issues that might come up, so you have to read it over carefully.
If you are referring to a conference with a conference officer, you cannot bring witnesses or documentation such as affidavits. If you are going before a master or a judge, you should bring the witnesses in person to the hearing.
