  • Do I have give consent for them to live abroad/leave with my son? If they leave are they required to pay for me to come see him?

    My son's mother and his step dad want to move to china for 2 years for a business opportunity. His mother has full custody and I pay child support.

    Kevin’s Answer

    Each Court handles this situation different. Case law creates a rebuttable presumption that she can relocate from the State of Arkansas with your son. You have to show she was doing it to try to interfere with your relationship with your son or some other purpose. If permitted, the Court would likely modify your visitation schedule to give you extra time during the summer or other holidays and may make her pay the travel expenses back to Arkansas to visit. In my opinion, it would be important to get started on this quick, so I'd suggest you speak with an attorney soon

    Kevin’s Answer

    You can consult with an attorney for him and if hired he can visit him at the jail. Some areas will not transport prisons from the jail for civil or domestic relations hearings so it would be important for a local attorney to know the customs and practices of the area where he is being held.

    Is there any way to get the money I put in back?

    Arkansas is a community property state, so 1/2 of what you have is hers and 1/2 of what she has is yours. There is to many other factors to determine how this would play out, but that provides some advice.

    Kevin’s Answer

    Motion for Change of Custody is appropriate. You could also send her an Agreed Order to change custody which is cheaper and quicker and would avoid having to go to Court. That could be sent via email and she'd just have to sign it in front of a notary public to assure it was actually her that signed it

    My wife recently left home without telling me her reasons or where she was moving. She comes in to pick her stuff as she pleases. Her strange behavior has made me feel unsafe especially as she carried along some of my effects and some money have b...

    Kevin’s Answer

    You can't get in trouble for changing the locks, however she still has the right to go in the house, so if she breaks a window or door to get in there is likely nothing you can do about it, which will be added cost to make those repairs.

  • Ex parte

    Can I get Ex Parte if my Ex wife is not following custody papers and is mentally abusing my son. She is un fit and we have some proof. She has full custody, but leaves him alone with his siblings who are under the age of 5 to "run errands".

    Kevin’s Answer

    Ex Parte orders are a Circuit by Circuit practice. Some will do it and some will not. It has to be an emergency where the child(ren) are in danger. Without more info on your proof and without knowing the Circuit Court well it is difficult to say
