I'm getting married soon. The sticking point I have for the new wife is that I want her to have full legal custody of the children prior to our getting married so that I can adopt them once we have exchanged our vows.
The birth father has paid ZERO support, education anything since last January, though the court ordered him to. The kids live with us, exclusively, I pay for all support and schooling.
What paperwork do we need for this? I appreciate any help or advice that you can give that will make this process relatively unconfusing.
i think your best bet is to actually talk to a lawyer.....
He needs to sign them over to her mate I think.....will he be up for this do you think?
Riddle me this brother can you handle it
Your style to my style you can't hold a candle to it

He'll want sum filthy lucre to do that KK
but yeah,,,,that's wot's needed
possibly unwise to marry a Thai woman who has already got a Thai hubby 'n kids
u like living dangerously I guess Stretch
Stretch says, "Yeah man, but it's complicated"
good luck Stretch
The lawyer is the only way really to be sure. How much would the scum bag want? Could you just pay it depending on how much? but make sure he signs the necessary documents and have witnesses. Then later when the kids are older they will know how much you really wanted them and how little the scum bag did.
Good luck, Jake
PS I take you are 110 percent sure about the mother right?
so a birth father can be sued in this country for child support? what enforcement mechanisms are in place?
...you get what you need.

now now expatwannabe - play nice. i was asking about the Thai dad/Thai mom/Thai kid scenario....
well, if he is some poor alcoholic issan fart, you may want to bribe some police help. I know one situation where that worked. Otherwise, the lawyer to draw up an agreement where he relinquishes custody... good luck there though

Prices are possibly higher for these " experts " at this moment in time due to the upcoming exercise of enacting ones franchise by the Thai population on December the 23rd 2007.
They would probably suggest that if he (ex husband) wanted to continue his habits (like breathing) an unconditional surrender would be in the best interest of all parties concerned,and of course no further contact at all with said ex lady wife and the children.

And then you'll have about a three year process of adopting your wifes children. I hear its a much easier process if you go back home with the kids. Perhaps 6 months.
Not as easy as that, the father has to authorize the child's travel plans,can't find the blighter can they ?
