Temporary custody (3 months or less) can be granted by the parents of the minor child. Written documentation must be given by the parents so the caregiver adult can enroll the child in school, get medical care, and so forth. The date when care is to begin and end must also be included as well as financial agreements. For permanent or long term custodial rights the interested party must apply for guardianship in the appropriate state court (usually probate) in the city or county of residence. It is a given that many children live with grandparents and other relatives without means of a written parental agreement or court order. However, without such documentation it is not possible to enroll a child in school or other activities nor is it possible to obtain medical care for the child except in a life threatening situation. When such things occur, state social services usually become involved and it results in a lot of legal complications that could have been avoided if proper procedures were followed.

What kind of custody does a family member need to have a child live in their house Mon-Fri and with the parents only on weekends?
You need a power of guardianship to be certain you have rights to make decisions concerning the child's welfare. This can be a hand-written power of guardianship that the pare…nts give to you. Google to find example of power of guardianship papers.
Answer This is in regards to temporary custody only (meaning three months or less). In such a situation all that is needed is written authorization (prefera…bly notarized) from the parent(s) giving the chosen adult permission to obtain medical care and if applicable school enrollment. During their absence the parent(s) should (1) Visit at least once a week if at all possible. (2) Speak on the phone 1-2 times per week. (3) Write letter(s) weekly. (4)Provide financial support. It's very important the authorization includes the date the temporary custody begins and ends. Any situation that would be longer than three months should be discussed with legal counsel.
I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW HOW CAN I GET CUSTODY OF MY COUSIN AWY FROM HER MOTHER
stacie amember of familyshe pregnant does want child for financial reasons but as famil,y member i will be getting the baby n mine n husband name will be on birth certificate.…Is there anything else that needs to be done
yes however in some cases the adoptive parent has given family or a close friend legal gauardianship of child or children do to family and military
No. Only the Respondent has a right to represent himself in the Family Court. A family member can only give a petition in the court for adjournment in case of sickness.
No they cannot unless they have a court order that says they have temporary custody.
For them to adopt your children, you signed away your parental rights, or, because of your behavior, they were free to be adopted. Your best hope is to be on good enough terms… to visit periodically.
If such a motion is approved by the court and is with the consent of the other biological parent, yes. Otherwise, the other parent has the right to object. If the other parent… has never been legally named or is absent, their parental rights would need to be terminated by the court after due diligence is exercised in trying to find them before such an arrangement would be approved.
The biological parents are responsible to pay for their child and will have to pay child support so unless the parents take care of it the family member have to go to court an…d apply for it if the child will be staying for a longer period or time.
Yes but the proposed guardian must be appointed by the court by filing a petition for guardianship and having it approved by a judge. You need to visit the probate court in yo…ur jurisdiction and inquire about the procedure.
Can incarcerated mom give temporary guardianship to a family member if she has joint custody of child?
No, the fathers rights comes first as a custodial parent.
If the parents are unfit you have to report this to the Child Protective Service. The court will then decide where the children will go to after taking the parental rights awa…y from the parents. You can petition to be appointed the child's legal guardian.
