Yes. Child custody is decided on what's best for the child. So if its best for the child to go with him/her, then that is what the judge will decide. * It's possible, but the non custodial parent will still have to be notified of the proceedings and given the opportunity to object to the act. Considering the cited circumstances that hardly seems fair, but it is, in the US the law.

You should visit the court immediately and file a motion for contempt. If the custodial parent is violating the visitation order then they are in contempt of a court order. If the violation continues they could lose custody. The court will schedule a hearing on the motion for contempt and the custodial parent will be required to appear and explain their actions. If you don't already have a visitation order in place then request one from the court as soon as possible.

Both full custody parents/guardians have say over the child. However, just because you are someones guardian does not mean that you have full custody of that child all of the time. It simply means you have say so in the childs life. This is how it was when my grandmother had full custody of me, however, my uncles were my guardians. I do not belive this particular law varies from place to place.

How can a family get custody of a child who is a ward of the state?

A responsible adult in the family should try to contact the childs social worker and express their interest in becoming the childs permanent guardian. That person would need to file a petition to be appointed the childs guardian in the probate court. That step should not be taken lightly but only if the adult wants to provide the child with a loving, stable home, financial support, address medical, emotional and education needs and step in as the childs parent.If possible they should consult with an attorney who specializes in custody and guardianship issues. An attorney could help the process go more smoothly and possibly more quickly since they would be familiar with the court and the process.
