Vistation


#1

Is he providing financially for the kids?
Did he tell you he wanted out of the marriage?
Has he seen the kids at ALL since he left?

If you say yes to any of the above, I don’t think he’d be guilty of abandonment. You can offer all kinds of visitation, but you can’t make or require them to do so.

Now if you’re getting child support, and the number of overnights is compromised because of his lack of visits, then tell the court.


#2

Is there another court date set for you to go back to court? Was this a temporary or a permanent custody order?

There are no specific charges you can bring against him for abandonment, however if he goes long enough without seeing the children you may be able to move to terminate his parental rights.

If we have to go back to court, it will probably be for child support to intervene to have payments taken directly out of his paycheck.

It was a temporary order to become permanent on the 1st day of the 13 month if no modifications are made?

What is the difference between the order starting out as a temporary order as opposed to being written as a permanent order?

How long would he have to go without seeing the children before his parental rights can be terminated?

My soon to be ex and I signed a consent order on August 7, 2008. My soon to be ex signed up for visitation with the minor children three (3) weekends out of the month. He has failed to do any visitation with the children since this time.

What happens when we go back to court?

Can he be brought up on charges of “abandonment” for not visiting with the minor children?

What does this mean since he has failed to do any visitation?

Let me know. Thanks.
