No, but the non-custodial parent has a pretty good case for getting custody in court.
Yes, this could happen.
you have to apply through the courts
Have sufficient evidence that: 1.) You are a fit parent and/or 2.) The guardian of the children is an unfit parent and then: present the information in front of a judge in a court of law.
No. Losing your job is not in and of itself grounds for losing custody of your child. The parent who wants to gain custody would need to file a motion for custody and convince the court that the custodial parent is unfit and that it would be in the best interest of the child to award custody to the other parent.
Non-parent custody is granted only under certain circumstances and through specific procedures. The rules vary by state, generally you must follow specific court procedures and provide clear proof that harm will come to the child if the non-parent custody is not granted. It is best to consult an attorney.
How can you best gain custody of your children who are currently living with their mother and the mother is a drug dealer
Yes unless they are found to be unfit.
You have to prove your case and convince the court.
Absent the consent of both biological parents, it is very hard to gain custody of a child that is not biologically relate to you. An adult who wants custody of a child but is not their birth parent faces an uphill battle. Courts rarely grant non-parents these rights because it is believed that the birth parents provide the best guidance and most attachments to the children. It is only possible for a non-parent adult to win custody of a child if they can show that they are:* psychologically the child's guardian, or* the biological parent(s) are unfit to be parents.Both of these hurdles are extremely difficult to clear and even if they are met, the non-parent custody must still be shown to be in the child's best interests.
No. A step parent can only gain rights to step children by going to court and file for adoption or in some cases, custody.
No, because it is considered bribing, and even if you could, I doubt a parent would give up a child for money if they are suing or have custody in the first place. If you want said child, you can sue for custody of the child. If you cannot gain custody, then the next best thing to do is sue for visitation.It's not legal to pay a parent to relinquish custody of a child in any state! But if the parent in question has a child support award, he or she will be free of paying child support or being in any way responsible for the child from that day forward.
That is dependent on the circumstances.
If the parents are unmarried the father must establish his paternity legally. Once he has established his paternity he can petition for custody, visitation and a child support order can be established. Unless you can prove the mother is unfit to be a parent, it is really hard to take custody away from the mother in Kentucky. However, a father may be awarded joint custody or/and a visitation schedule. He should seek the help of an attorney who specializes in custody issues.
That depends entirely on where you live. Here in Florida,the mother is assumed to have full natural parental rights and can move her children as she pleases, with or without the father's consent unless there is a contradictory court order. Check your state child custody laws. If you live in a joint custody state, you'd have to gain his permission or fight for a court order that gives you full custody.
The word custody means possession. Example: John and Melissa and divorced and have three children, John took Melissa to court to gain custody of the children, the Judge gives custody to Melissa due to John's hidden drug charges."
The noncustodial parent would have to call the state's child abuse hotline and report this to them, and then await their instructions on how to gain custody of the child if they should be taken away from the parent.
You will probably need to take it to court, or report to child services. You have to have evidence if anything if you are going to gain custody. Now this may not be a accurate answer, but that's what I would do.
The court would be unlikely to reward the non-support of a child by taking custody from the custodial parent and granting custody to the delinquent parent. There must be a compelling reason for the court to make such a drastic change in the child's living arrangement. You should consult with an attorney who can review your situation and explain your options.
you will go to jail
It's dependent on the distance.
Not enough unfortunately. Usually, if the child is removed from both parents' care before legal guardianship is established, the child is remanded to the custody of the state. At that point, it becomes more difficult (and expensive) for grandparents to gain custody. There are heartbreaking stories all over the place of grandparents trying in vain to get custody of their grandchildren.
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 away from the parents. You can petition to be appointed the child's legal guardian.
