yes she can * The state does have existing laws that forbid cohabitation of non married individuals. Therefore the non custodial parent could file a complaint with social services or preferably with the court that issued the custodial order. The state does not recognize common law marriages with the exception of the city of New Orleans which allow domestic partners to live together without benefit of marriage. The non custodial parent should present evidence as to why the living arrangements of the custodial parent present an unsuitable environment for the minor child/children before social services will become involved. This applies also if the non custodial parent chooses to bring the matter before the court, which would be the best option if he or she wishes to have the situation addressed.

It indicates that one parent has the child or children less time than the primary custodial parent. For example the children may reside with the mother the majority of time, and have visitation with the father on weekends, holidays, etc. The parent with primary custody is the one who has specified rights to make decisions such as schooling, medical care and so forth. Joint custody indicates each parent has equal rights as to how the children are cared for in the above mentioned instances, and other contributing factors. Sometimes the court specifies such rights in the custody order, sometimes they are only implied.

Custodial parent has suddenly passed away Father with joint custody has tried to retrieve his children but the grandmother will not let him remove them from her house What can he do?

If the mother had primary residential, than the grandmother has a right to the children, but this not not preclude access rights. This is why this needs to be addressed in the custody decree. You may need to file a custody challenge to be granted primary residential. But, if you are being denied access, that's interference with custody, which could become a police matter.
