It might be possible if the court decides that the parents of the minor are unfit to properly care for the child. Before a guardianship petition would be accepted from any adult concerning custody of a minor the minor's parents would have to voluntarily relinquish their rights or the court would have to permanently terminate the rights the parents to the minor child. In some cases a minor is placed in the home of a relative temporarily while an investigation is completed by child protective services or while the judge is deciding what action if any should be taken in regards to the minor child's welfare.
The Aunt would need to file a motion for custody of a child in need of care.
Yes because the mother had no custody over the child
If the niece is an adult, her aunt can take her anywhere she wants to go. If the niece is a minor and the aunt has custody, she can take her anywhere she wants, as long as conditions of the award of custody do not limit travel or relocation. If the aunt is not a custodian of a minor niece, then she can take the niece out of the country only with the permission of the custodian or custodial parent.
If the aunt is not agreeable, it will require a custody challenge, including demonstrating that child support was paid during the time period.
File a child in need of care motion
The Aunt can be named a guardian, however this dos not prevent a custody challenge by the other parent.
Only with approval by the court of a Motion for Custody of a Child In Need Of Care.
yes the aunt could if the little girl had been taken away from her mother from child services and the father has no intrest. but she can not if the father decides to take custidy then no
In the US... NO, and if she attempts it she can find herself facing criminal charges. The only exception would be if the court has awarded the Aunt custody and the only way that will happen is if the parents are proven to be unfit, and it takes A LOT to prove unfitness.
When they are 18.
The courts would prefer to find some other competent relative such as a grandparent or possibly an aunt or uncle of the child, in such a case. If no such relative can be found who is willing to take custody of the child, then the child will become a ward of the state.
Ya if your aunt does not have custody you can leave with bio moms consent, now your aunt might threaten and try to keep you there but without custody she has no legal rights to make you
appeal to the court
Only if the child or children are placed in custody of the uncle and/or aunt
Yes, but she first has to go through court and if the judge thinks the father is unfit, or if the child is old enough to choose who they want to live with, then the judge could give custody to the aunt.
Through the courts.
Your aunt is your child's Great Aunt, so your child is her great niece or great nephew.
A relative. Someone like an aunt, uncle, or grandparent.
A child of your aunt or uncle is your first cousin.
Their 'great aunt'
A minor can move to a different state to live with an aunt as long as they have permission from their parents.
To your child, she would be a great great great aunt. If she is your mother's great aunt, that means she is your great great aunt, making her a great great great aunt to your child. I would just stick to calling her auntie or Aunt ______. :)
You yourself cannot choose to move in and live with your aunt. However, if your parents and aunt agree that you should, then you can. If they can't agree and you, as a child, are endangered in your parent's custody, then a court will decide where you will live and who your legal guardian will be.
You father's aunt is your great aunt.
None, unless appointed by a judge
