  • Leaving country for 30 days without minor child Georgia

    I am scheduled to leave the country for 30 days beginning on June 1. The trip is for a college study abroad course. My 3 yr old daughter is to stay with my fiance, who has also been the closest thing to a real dad shes had in 2 years. Im concerned that her biological father, who is on the birth certificate and was legitimized, could show up and take her while I am gone. He has never supported her, nor have I heard from him in a year. Is it legal for me to leave for 30 days and leave her with my fiance? Could her biological dad take her, legally?

    If you have not heard from him in a year how will he know his child is not with you?

      Her father and I have a couple of mutual friends that have already told him that I am leaving. Though he has never cared about supporting her, he is admittedly spiteful enough to try and take her to cause me pain.

        Your fiance would not be able to legally stop him from taking his child

          It depends. Unless he can prove he's the father and that he has custodial rights, I think it could be considered kidnapping. Even parental kidnapping is illegal.
          I don't believe what I write, and neither should you. Information furnished to you is for debate purposes only, be sure to verify with your own research.
          Keep in mind that the information provided may not be worth any more than either a politician's promise or what you paid for it (nothing).
          I also may not have been either sane or sober when I wrote it down.
          Don't worry, be happy.

            Unrelated to the OP, but do you at least have a child support order against him? Even if you never actually get the money, he should have that hanging over him for the rest of his life.

              He could easily file an ex-parte order and get temporary custody.

              That happens not infrequently.
