I am the plaintiff suing for custody. I have already been granted in forma pauperis. Can the defendant also get it too in this case. Like if he files for a modification or something.
Makes for an interesting child
Custody ass to which section a transfer this question
Yes, why would your IFP status in any way affect his ability to be granted IFP status?
Both Plaintiff and Defendant can be IFP throughout the life of the case. However, I am assuming that you have an upcoming Conciliation or are working on negotiating a mutually agreeable Custody Order? My strong suggestion would be to develop a comprehensive agreement that would reduce the likelihood of a Modification being filed in the near future. The sooner that custody can be satisfactorily resolved, even if unpleasant feelings between parents must be set aside, the sooner the child can settle into a secure familiar routine.
I am not sure why the defendant would be precluded because the plaintiff filed for IFP.
Understand that IFP typically only helps with filing fees.
