  • Will not notify childs father of impending birth or allow in the delivery room. How can I protect myself from his custody wrath?

    I will not allow him there due to his disrespect and disregard towards her during my pregnancy, however out of spite I know he will try to gain shared custody or control her schedule like he does w/his child from a previous relationship. He has de...

    Stuart’s Answer

    There are several issues that are all inter related. For HIPPA reasons, your privacy must be protected during birth. He has no rights to be present during birth. However, once the child is born, each party has equal rights to the child. You should be seeking counsel to be proactive in the protection of your new child. You should, if you can prove he is a threat to you, file domestic violations or peace order against him to stay away. This is a temporary patch to a long term problem of custody and access. Courts are favoring frequent visits with new born children by the other parent. This is generally the case in Prince George's County. Again, talk to a lawyer.

    I am concerned that my child's parent will use tie-breaking authority to send our child to a school far from my home and cause it to be impossible for me to take the child there and maintain the 50/50 physical custody arrangement that's part of ou...

    Stuart’s Answer

    Tie-breaking authority does not mean that a parent can take actions that will deprive the other of access. You may need to file a pleading in court to modify the current order or block the primary parent. You may want to look at https://sasitime.net to create a journal, keep records of expenses and try and work out an access schedule.

    Stuart’s Answer

    It is unclear whether you have a 2nd decree assault or a straight domestic violence petition pending. You need to hire an attorney who can act as a go between with your husband or his attorney. The Court can grant family maintenance in a DV case. There are too many issues and factors that you need to discuss with a family law attorney.
