No, the minor is there by court order and cannot arbirarily move from the residence until they are at least 18. In Alabama and Nebraska the age would be 19, and in Mississippi and Pennsylvania it would be 21. Even when the minor reaches the state age of legal majority, it may be necessary to have the court that issued the original placement order confirm the minor as being an adult.

Legal Custody is different than Parental rights. The courts decides child visitation, etc. and parents could pay child support to grandparent. It is all up to the courts..

In less than 15% of of cases will family services consider it, so it will require a full custody challenge. see links

Grandparents do not have any legal rights to custody of the grandchildren but if you suspect the environment is bad for the child you should contact the CPS and then you can say you want to foster the child if the mother refuses to kick him out or move.

Contact a social worker and the CPS. The court decides where children will stay and parents can not just hand them over willy nilly. If you want to foster the child you can let the CPS know. If the child have a father the custody will most likely go to him or another relative if he is unfit.

A 14yo can not move out on his own but have to have a guardian and someone who have custody of him. If he is abused he can call the police or CPS and they can help him with a group home or foster family. If he wants to move to a relative he will need parental consent to do so. If you need to speak to someone your own age you can go to teenlineonline.org or call their number.

Contact CPS and let them know what the situation is. They are going to have to follow the laws of due process and do a complete investigation.

No. At 19 you are legally an adult whether married or not.

A minor can not choose where to live. Your grandparents can apply for custody after the parental rights have been given up or taken from your parents by the court. If you are living in a unsafe environment you have to tell someone or call the CPS.

The best thing you can do is call CPS (Child Protective Services) and file a report with them. If you are related to the child you can try to obtain custody after CPS investigates.

Your state CPS undoubtedly has regulations covering this question. Refer to your individual state's agency as I'm certain that the rules differ from state-to-state.

If the child is in any kind of danger you have to call the CPS. You can then tell them you can take the child until the court have decided. It can lead to them not terminating their parental rights though. it depends on what the CPS think about the situation and what you mean by parents not being "active". If the court find them unfit you can petition for custody.

Cps called and made threats. The mother left the state to live with a family member because of that two days after the threat was made. Does cps have authority in another state if they cannot find the mother?? Depends on a few additonal factors like was/is she the custodial parent? Is she running from a criminal charge as well? Does she have a prior judgment giving her sole custody? And then ~ which state did she leave?

You will be taken into custody. Since CPS is giving the drug test you must all ready be on probation or have a problem. You will be taken to juvenile court and held in the juvenile justice system.

When CPS or other child welfare authorities take custody of a child, they must file a suit, usually in juvenile court. This is often referred to as a deprivation proceeding. The father would have to file notice in the suit and seek custody from that court.

the child is in cps custody and is telling everyone that they don't want to return to the abuse in the adoptive home and wants to live with their biological mother does the twelve year old have rights here in Arizona

User Avatar

You contact the CPS and tell them you want to give up custody. They see if there's reasons enough to do so.

User Avatar

If there is a CPS order to remove the child for his/her protection and if the parents are arrested for something the child can be taken in by CPS and the police.

If you are thinking of calling CPS on someone, think twice. Children 6-1 are abused more often in CPS care that with in-home family preservation. For more information, look at www.fightcps.com

The answer to why a particular person does something would have to be gotten from that particular person. Hypothetically, most people contact CPS because they fear for the health and safety of a child.
