That depends on the legal custody agreement in place. If no custody agreement has been hammered out in court, you should contact the family court in your county of residence, or an attorney, for information on filing papers to assign temporary guardianship of your child to your sister. You may both have to appear in court so the judge can determine whether or not such an arrangement is in the best interests of the child. In other words, cover your bases. Fathers do have rights and if he finds out that you are violating his rights, you may be facing a custody battle.
There are no black and white answers to questions like this one. It would all depend on why the mother doesn't have custody, why the sister does, why the father doesn't, and your state's laws.
She needs the permission of the father and/or the court.
If the court approves.
Custody is granted by the courts, and that's where you need to go.
The sister must make an appeal to the courts to gain custody of her brother. The judge will weigh the reasons each guardian believes she should have custody of the child and then make a decision in the best interest of the child.
If you're saying can you ignore and violate the court orders? Yes, but then you would be in Contempt of Court, resulting in change of custody order being made permanent and not just temporary.
Yes, you should be able to have your attorney draw up guardianship papers. It shouldn't be expensive, but you do need the papers to give you the rights that you need.
That depends on the judge. Normally in the US the mother is given custody. Although there is a trend of joint custody. It's no different than being married to a US citizen. My sister was married to Canadian and she was given full custody. It is always best to work out the arraingment with the ex.

If the original decree gave full custody to the father, then only the father can relinquish said custody. You will need to hire an attorney to figure out the legal implications required to take on such a task. But is it possible to give away custody of her without going to court? All my mom did was sign papers and send them to my dad who has not even filed them.
No, not unless her parents give the adult sister a written and notarized statement granting temporary custody (3 months or less). Any other arrangement for the minor to leave the custody of her parents would have to be done through prescribed legal procedures.
Yes you can gain custody of her.
no because your sister has custody of you your mom doesnt have to know she is no longer your parent or gaurdian
Yes. Technically 18 year olds are adults. A minor could not have custody of a younger sibling. But an adult can.
If the custody order is done through a court of law, the sister will receive (and needs) child support.
No but your sister have rights still and can still have visitation. Both you and the cousin had equal rights in court.
A grandmother can be a temporary guardian, or the husbands sister if they are divorced. In thecase of M ichael Jackson his mother and sister Janet Jackson are guardians like that.
Ask a laywer.

Guardianship, but not custody. The father can still challenge. see links
If the father has been found unfit and does not have custody the aunt can apply for custody in court like any other relative but she has no special rights.
Probably, it depends on the state. The best chance would be to convince the father that the child is being neglected - if he signed a waiver agreeing to custody to you then it would aid in the situation to convince a judge that the mother is unfit and that custody should be turned over to you. Legal Aid in your area should be able to help with this as well or any type of legal volunteer agency.
Yes, it is illegal for a brother and sister to get married.
