No, not unless the custodial parent gives permission,and makes the proper arrangements concerning the care of the minor child. If the parent(s) oppose the move, the relative wishing to take custody of the minor may petition for guardianship rights in the appropriate state court. Unless there is proof of serious neglect and/or abuse of said minor, the court will not terminate parental rights nor guardianship to another adult.

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.

Friends should be left to friends. If her and her aunt are friends, it should not provoke jealosy. When I have to choose between a friend and another friend, you know who I choose? The one who does not make me choose. I would rather have friends that understand that I need a lot of different people in my life.

Nothing you can choose to call your auntie/aunt anything you want really

If your sister or brother had a grandchild, and you were a woman, you would be a grand aunt to that grandchild. Some people say great aunt, instead of grand aunt.

No. The parents always have the right to choose their child's name.

I don't know the answer yet, but it's "Aunt Alexandra," not "Aunt Alexander." Besides, I would know; that is my name.Mustache! :{)AHA

The Aunt would need to file a motion for custody of a child in need of care.

The parent is the legal guardian so no she can't choose. Unless the court rules in favor of the girl. They decide what is in best interest of the child. In the meantime, the police are required by law to return the child to their parent. There are other options though. First, if the environment with the father does not meet the standards set by the court or DCFS, it is possible that the judge would rule that the child live with her aunt. Also, depending on the city and state, sometimes after a parent dies the judge will allow the child to choose, if the parent and aunt are in agreement - or, obviously, if the father gives up his parental rights. Lastly, the child could become emancipated at 16 and choose to live where she wants.

Dill's aunt. they live next door to the "Finch" family (Scout, Jem, Atticus). improved : although i do not really understand ur question, but it is certain that Aunt alexandra was not Dill's aunt, but Scout's aunt, Atticus' sister. (Aunt Alexandra was Atticus' sisterโ€ฆI decided she had been swapped at birth, that my grandparents had perhaps received a Crawford instead of a Finch. P.88") .

Vanna White might be an Aunt, but not to anyone that is actually part of her family and instead part of her biological father's new family. That is why she has her new father's name since she was young.

It has to be the legal guardian so only if your aunt is your legal guardian and not your parents. Only the legal guardian is responsible for you.

Aunt Alexandra means that the Cunninghams are poor and they are not as high on the "social ladder" as the Finch's. They are not good people. Then if they choose guilty then the defendant will go after them.

Hi Iโ€™m 11 and my sister is 6 and my niece is pregnant so we might be the youngest great auntie in the world :0

If the dad's sister's aunt is also your dad's aunt, then your dad's aunt is your great aunt. However if she is not your dad's aunt, then she is your aunt's aunt and not necessarily related to you.

There is no different, but just a term that some countries use to call their Aunt Sue, Auntie Sue. An Aunt is the sister of either your mother or father. In England they say 'mum' instead of 'mom' or 'mother' like we do in the Western part of the world. It's a play on words.

Your mother's aunt is your great aunt.
