    Question Forced Custody???

    What is the name of your state? Ohio

    I am a single mother in the middle of moving to North Carolina with my 7 year old son. I heard that there was a way to force temporary custody on his dad until I become in a stable enviornment. Is this true? A friend of mine said that she had to do that to her daughters father because she is in the military. If so, how do I go about doing this?

    Never heard of "forcing" custody on someone.

    I'm curious to know why you need to "force custody" on someone else just to make a move? Why not take your son with you. Children experience moving all the time. Just think, if you were married to his father and were moving, you'd have to take him with you....

    There would be no one else to "force" custody on. We can't all send our kids away anytime we make changes. That's not reality.

    My response:

    You know, if you can't handle parenthood and need to "get yourself together" without your child, there are plenty of Orphanages who will take your child and adopt your child out to loving parents. That way, you can deal with your alcohol and drug addictions, get yourself together, and never have to worry about your child again. But then, you'll probably breed again to make up for that whole in your heart.

    I agree with everyone else. We DO HAVE KIDS here in NC too you know. And even have good schools. Why would you want to force your child off on anyone? THAT IS YOUR SON!! Act like it.

    Today women continue to serve in the military after childbirth so there are times when they may be deployed or in the event of death. Guardians are appointed prior to the necessity, this is different than what your are asking but what may have been the case with your firend. Both my son and DIL were in the Army together, I was the appointed Guardian in the event that both were deployed at the same time. During their tours, both were deployed at different times, each one becomming the primary care giver while the other was deployed, I never had to assume guardianship.

    Please if you are uncertain about your future, please consider your child's best interest. If your child has a visitation schedule with their father and shared custody you should be able to schedule visitation during a move, but if you are so unstable as to require a change in custody, try to remember to do that in a way that doesn't over stress your child.

    Has paternity been legally established by dad signing the birth certificate or signing an acknowledgement of paternity? Were you two married when the child was born?

    Are there custody orders in effect now?

    Why not just ask dad if he wants temporary custody? Is there some reason you have to "force" him to take custody?

    How sad, I would never "force" my children on ANYONE!! If dad didn't take them willingly, I wouldnt want him too. And just remember, it is easier to give up custody, than to get it back!
