It sounds like you may need to address certain provision of your visitation order, specifically on barring the parties from degrading one another in the presence of the child. Also maybe an neutral location could be advantageous for you too. Please consider making an appointment to discuss your case and your existing order in more detailSee question

First, there are two type of custody Legal and Physical. Of these two types of custody there is Sole, Joint or Shared. The most common Custody orders will say Joint Legal with Primary Physical to one party. The Physical Custody is where you need to focus. Who has been the primary care giver for the child. What roles have each of you played in the upbringing of your baby. Due to Father's limited contact with the baby, it sounds like you have a strong case for primary physical custody. I realize he evidently fighting to have the magic word "joint" in there some where. But when it comes to legal custody whether it says JOINT OR SOLE, you both will have to provide notice of address changes and the Court will tell you that you both need to communicate for the best interest of the child and you both will be allowed access to medical or educational records. I would suggest sitting down with a local attorney in your area to assist you with this case. To hopefully propose you having primary physical custody and working out some visitation for the Father.See question
my husband received custody of my daughter 2 19 14 she been residing in NJ for over 9 months. He received custody dye to they said i had a prior child abuse history but i hired a lawyer and found out they had to rule out & rescinded what they sai...
You mentioned that the case is in Yorktown and you make a reference to 2 19 14. I am assuming what you are trying to say is that on February 19, 2014 in York JDR that Court granted custody to your husband. since that date your child has been living with him in New Jersey. So now the issue of Motion to Amend and Transfer. I do not believe you will be successful to transfer the case to Newport News as the child is not living here and has not lived here for some time. The proper venue for a custody dispute is here the child has resided for the previous 6 months or where the last order was entered.See question

As the other responders mention you need to hire an attorney. Your husband does not need to sign the decree. You need to get him served and then if he fails to respond then you can proceed without his cooperation.See question
During a divorce, can you ask the court to rule on only the assets you can't agree on (or will a court only look at the whole enchilada and then you risk having to divide or sell something you didn't want to divide or sell)?
If you both have counsel, your respective attorneys will typically inform the Court that what is at issue or what has been agreed upon. This usually entails a written agreement. Now many times though, parties will get close to a complete verbal agreement on all issues but then the last few issues unravel the successful agreement in which case does force the Court to rule on the "whole enchilada." The lesson hear is lock in what you agree to in writing and reserve the few remaining issues in writing. This will not leave anything to chance when you go before the Court. Did I mention get the agreement in writing?See question
Ex-spouse is planning to move out of state to live with her boyfriend with our 2 children (9 & 7 years old).
You absolutely do need an attorney immediately. You mention ex-spouse so I am assuming that you are divorced. So what were the terms of your divorce decree? We really need to see the prior order to see where we stand. I hope your prior order had a provision about no overnight guests of the opposite sex. Of course with regard to the relocation of your children you can object to that but by doing so you are saying that you desire for the kids to stay with you. This entails making sure your are appropriately prepared to take custody. Are you living with someone? Does your home have sufficient space for 2 kids? What school are you zone for? These are but a few of the questions that you need help preparing for.
As the other responder mentioned, you may go to the Juvenile & domestic relations district court and file your own motion to amend or petition to revisit the custody issue but it would be much wiser to have an attorney help you do that. If you are truly serious about addressing this issue then take the time and money to hire someone with the expertise to achieve your goals.See question
Was dropped by spouse they claimed the qualifying event was legal separation which is not true, there is no such thing in Virginia
Employers can drop a spouse off health insurance. Quite often employers will use a "legal separation" as a qualifying event. The problem is legal separation is not something that you have to file for. If you no longer live with your spouse, don't go out together, don't pay bills together, don't have dinner together, with the expressed desire for a divorce, then you are legally separated. This is why it is very common for an attorney to ask the court for an Pendente Lite hearing. To settle issues that need addressing while the divorce is pending. Like preventing one spouse from dropping another off health insurance.See question
I have been divorced for more than 4 months in the state of Virginia. Two days before I remarried, my Ex files a motion to vacate. If I get remarried and the motion gets approved, will I be charged with bigamy? How likely will a motion to vacat...
The bigger question is why is they are filing a motion to vacate? Most of time when these motions are filed is due to some problem is addressing property debts or support. Sometimes they are filed because the former spouse claims that notice or service was not proper. You definitely need to sit down with an attorney to review the motion that your ex filed. As far as bigamy goes, if you get remarried then after the marriage the motion to vacate the former divorce is granted then your second marriage is called "voidable" NOT "void" . Long story short, all this will be cured when the issues on the motion to vacate are resolved and the divorce re-instated. NO BIGAMY... NOW if the motion the vacate is granted prior to your second marriage then that second marriage would be void and I would have to advise you to wait to conduct your marriage ceremonySee question
This past weekend I received an open container ticket (as a passenger). I was also just hired as a teacher. Will my current employer be notified of this ticket? Is this a criminal offense? Should I tell my employer?
I am puzzled by your inquiry.
§ 18.2-323.1. States that " It shall be unlawful for any person to consume an alcoholic beverage while driving a motor vehicle upon a public highway of this Commonwealth. " but if you were not operating the vehicle. then I am curious as to what they actually charges you with.
I think you may want to consider scheduling an appointment with a local attorney to discuss your case further. If you are found guilty this offense is a criminal offense, it is a class 4 misdemeanor which is like a $250 fine. Your employer could find out this is a public record. Now the Court's will not mail anything to your employer but again.. if your employer does any sort of back ground check they would see this charge.See question
My ex and I are currently going through a separation. She decided to take our two children up to Vermont with her for the summer. She did not properly notify me 30 days before she left. The day before she left, I presented her with a note that ...
It sounds like you need to hire an attorney ASAP to file for custody. At present the proper jurisdiction would be VA but if they continue to reside up there and you do nothing she might be able to establish jurisdiction up there. So definitely need to address this issue now in the local Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court. Now as far as the paper goes, I believe that will be evidence you can use to show that she acknowledged that the children resided here with you and her transportation to Vermont was only to be temporary. The paper is NOT an legally binding ORDER but it is evidence that would aid you in getting an order. Now, having said all that you do have some obstacles to face. I have assisted fathers when the mothers run off with the kids and dealing with other states can be difficult. If you spouse refuses to return the kids, then after you have a custody order her in VA you may have to travel to Vermont and request a PICK UP ORDER to give the local sheriff authority to physically assist you in securing your children. Some states are more cooperative than others but I have not dealt with Vermont before.
Regardless hire an attorney NOW to start the process.See question
