Can a grandparent get coustody of their 16-year-old grandchild if the child wants to live with the grandparent and does the child have the right to move out of the parents' home?
A 16-year-old cannot leave home without parental consent. If they do and the parents call the police (and I'm assuming they would) then the police will pick the child up and return him/her home. Despite the fact that you are family, it is possible that you (the grandparent) could be charged with something along the lines of harboring a runaway/interring with child custody/contributing to the delinquency of a minor/etc (the exact charges depending on where you live). The grandparent can petition the court for custody, but unless they are able to prove the parents to be unfit in some way...

Grandparents do have a right. . I think the grandparents have more of a right then any other family member. I've heard about grandparents taking in their grandchildren if t…he parents do not want the children.
Although a minor's input MAY be asked by the judge, in the end it is the court who decides who the primary custodial parent will be. The child has very little input on the dec…ision.
11. Depends on why...I think a child saying they don't want to visit grandparents/relatives could be a red flag...ask why they don't want to visit...

Answer: . Yes, if the mother is absent or found incompetent the judge can take away her maternal rights at which point the next of kin will be asked to raise the child.
The parents of a 10yr old has had drug and alcohol addictions the child has resided with the grandparents for almost 2 yrs and does not want to go to the parents can she stay with the grandparents?
The answer is that most times the courts will prefer that a child be with the parents. The drug addiction may well be a factor that will be considered to reversing this typica…l finding but I think you will not find a hard and fast rule.. Seek the advice of an attorney, give you state in your question, it will help.
Then the child wants to live with a grandparent, but needs the legal guardian's or parent's consent.
If grandparents were married before a grandchild is born does the child become step grandchild or grandchild of the grandparent with no children?
Biologically, the grandchild is a step-grandchild to the grandparent that had no children. In matters of the heart, however, the grandchild is whatever the grandparent feels i…t is.
File a court motion.
If the grandparents want to adopt the child that they already have custody of do both parents have to sign or can just one parent sign off their rights in adoption?
Both need to testify in, or provide documentation to, the court that they approve this adoption. Everything needs to be clearly documented, and clearly defined boundaries set… to avoid future problems. Or, interference.
Yes, but DCS is usually not that cooperative.
The non-custodial parent can file for custody.
Tell them to stop. Dont be hard...there old people!
In Children and the Law
If there are grandparents right laws where you live. Some states have them and then the court decides.
