Default fast help please

My daughter tells me she is leaving her husband. She is taking their child and coming here. Her husband knows about this. My question is, even though he knows she's leaving..can he still file abandonment charges on her?

She's packing now, and never called the lawyer her momma told her to call. I'm trying to get ahold of one real quick, b/c I don't want her doing anything to risk her losing her son. If anyone knows, I'll thank you ahead of time!

I'm sorry, I wish I could help you. I'm not familiar with what the laws might be in your state. I hope you find something out though.

Is he abusing her? Obviously I'm not a lawyer, but she's better off to stay put unless there is abuse. I did have a link to a legal forum around here. I'll post it in a few, if I can locate it.

Thank you both! I'm waiting on a call from an attorney now.

I found the legal advice link. I have never used it, but here it is.

Thank you Aug...I just got off the phone with the attorney and my D. He CAN file abandonment if he chooses. She didn't think that that makes a difference to most judges, but that would be the ones around here...and it would have to be filed in Tulsa. Different.

I gave my D the information. Now she's got some real thinking to do. I told her unless she had a very compelling reason to leave (abuse), then she needs to contact an attorney yesterday. No telling where this is going.

The last thing I'd heard they were going to go to MC, forgive and forget the past (her EA and possible PA with someone else), and fix things. That was two days ago. Now this. My children are making an old woman out of me.

I understand. Unless she is being abused she needs to stay there and face the music as the old adage goes. It sounds as though her husband has a right to be upset. This isn't going to get fixed by her running home to momma anyway. Hopefully everything will calm down.

She needs to do this the right way. If she wants to leave, then file for a legal separation and let a judge tell you what you can and can't do. Men are enlightened these days...the days of taking the kids and running home are over.

That looks like an excellent forum, Aug. I've bookmarked that one, I have a feeling we're going to be needing more of it.
