6/2/2014 - The Decision was released in February awarding a shared custody decision and joint decision making between the Family and her Biological Father giving primary care to the Family. The Decision, a very dangerous one to all fathers, is being appealed to the Colorado Supreme court. Mean while Rob and his family are trying very hard to share custody of Kaia and see her as much as possible. The visit are always challenged by the family but Rob and family still push to see her.
10/24/2013 – Time to fight to bring Kaia home to her Daddy. Full Contested hearing scheduled for December 10th, 11th, and 13th. We are prepared to bring all constitutional remedies. Baby Girl deserves to be with her Daddy... Gonna bring you home this time.
The Book is being written and in the works.
5/1/2013 – A great day… Colorado has jurisdiction as Utah fillay released it. Colorado made orders for phone calls with Kaia and visit coming on May 17th. I can hardly wait to see my little love bug…
4/7/2013 – A new order from Colorado came in last week to get Utah to release Jurisdiction to Colorado. Colorado should have never lost Jurisdiction. Court hearing on Friday to get a hold of Jurisdiction from Utah.
3/30/2013 - Things get more complicated as I miss my daughter more and more and time goes by that the family has not allowed me to see her or HER to see me. An offer to see her with three days to get to Utah made it nearly impossible to do. Is the family getting the point that I am not going away and my daughter have a CONSTITUTIONAL right to bond and be together?

How to keep you child from Adoption is a tough question? Keeping yourself prepared, knowing the laws and your rights is the most important thing a Father can do. If your unsure the best thing you can do is ask someone who has gone through this? There are many websites and Attorneys out there that will allow you to ask questions and offer help to you. I will offer you my help but I have to advise you I am not an Attorney and I can only speak about what I did and what I know about in Utah, Colorado and New Mexico.
First things first, know you want to be a Father and the fact you might be alone. If the Mother is threatening you with Adoption then you better move fast. The chances are she is working with an Agency and if it is Utah you will need to follow strict Utah Laws.
1. My first piece of advice is to HIRE an Attorney in your home state. Interview many Attorneys first before you pick one. I would look into an Attorney who does Father’s Rights and believes in Father’s Rights. Money is a big factor so make sure you find one who has a fair retainer and is at a reasonable hourly rate. $1,500 to $5,000 is a decent cost on a retainer and $150 to $225 is what you can expect to pay an hour.
2. Know your state laws and find out what you have to do to establish Paternity. Many states do not allow for Paternity before the child is born and have a Punitive Fathers Registry. Make sure you know which one your state has. In the state of Colorado there is case law and laws that allow for a Father to file for Paternity before the child is born.
3. Remember the Mother is going through so much and don’t be a pain in her side. Be her friend and do all you can to try and communicate with her. Provide her with money and support.
To be continued.
