Legal Answers
Q. How likely is it my kids would be taken if this was reported?
A: It is unlikely that your children will be taken away from you simply because you have a condition which requires you to take medication. Many people in society have bouts of anxiety and depression and society, including family court, understands and does not condemn people who are going through their share of troubles. Continue in your therapy and take your medication since the court is going to want to know that you have help. Additionally, it is important to get on the offense so that the picture is not painted so grim. Look for an attorney who is going to protect you and your kids and give you some peace of mind so you can start your next chapter in your Book of Life.
Q. Is it illegal to share an Alabama custody order in a Florida case that does not involve the same clients
A: It may be illegal to share an Alabama custody order in a Florida case where the clients are different if the Alabama custody order is considered confidential by law and a motion that will allow it to be presented as evidence before the Court has not been granted. However, if the foundation has been probably presented before the Court, the Court may find that the information is relevant even if is it not the same child or parents. The Rules of Evidence are complicated so I urge you to seek legal counsel as soon as possible.
Q. Me and my child’s father are unmarried with no court orders. Can I move out of state with my child?
A: Yes, an unmarried biological mother has all the rights to a child born out of wedlock. However, the father may petition the court to prevent the relocation by filing a paternity/timesharing case.
