The person with whom the child currently lives may file a petition for custody in the state where reside. Contact the clerk of the family or domestic court of jurisdiction to obtain information concerning the issue. Or if possible obtain the assistance of a qualified attorney.

Of course not. The temporary guardian had to be appointed by the court and only the court can appoint another guardian. Only courts can appoint guardians or award custody.Of course not.

He could if he has sole legal custody and you have no parental rights. Otherwise he would need your consent and she would need to be approved and appointed by the court as a guardian.He could if he has sole legal custody and you have no parental rights.

Either the biological parents have custody of a child oranother adult is appointed by the court as guardian. Generally, a court must remove legal custody from the parents in order to appoint a guardian. If the grandmother has custody she would be the legal guardian. Generally, parental custody and legal guardianship cannot run together.Either the biological parents have custody of a child oranother adult is appointed by the court as guardian.

No. Only parents are granted custody of their children by a court order. You cannot assign custody to a non-parent nor will the court. When a party other than the parent gets "custody" of a child it is done via a guardianship and must be obtained through a court. The person who requests the guardianship is appointed the child's legal guardian, the child is deemed the guardian's ward, and the case will remain under the jurisdiction of the court.

YOu need to be over 18 years of age, and petition the probate court for custody in the county the child lives in.

It is unlikely that the court would order "shared custody". If the mother is unfit the grandmother can petition to be appointed the legal guardian of the child. However, the father must consent.It is unlikely that the court would order "shared custody". If the mother is unfit the grandmother can petition to be appointed the legal guardian of the child.

No. Nor does she have the right to accept any court ordered child support payments. She must petition the court to be appointed the child's legal guardian. If the deceased mother had full legal custody a guardian must be appointed or you must obtain legal custody through the court.

She would have to petition the court to be appointed the temporary guardian. If the biological mother has joint custody or is available to take the children the custody will automatically go to her unless she has already been deemed unfit or consents to the guardianship.

Joint custody is two parents sharing physical and or legal custody of minor children.Guardianship is when a person who is not the legal parenthas physical and legal custody of the minor. However, a guardian can be appointed for a person of any age who cannot manage their own affairs.

Bail is the property or money given as surety that a person released from custody will return at an appointed time.

The rules of visitation rights are included in the original custody agreement. If the exact wording is not present, the law presumes the noncustodial parent will adhere to the wishes of the primary custodial parent in such matters, or be in violation of a court order. If there is a joint custody order in place it should stipulate which parent is the managing conservator.

When it pertains to custodial issues related to minor children all US states have laws that allow for sole and joint custody by the biological parents.

Joint custody is a court order whereby custody of a child is awarded to both parties. In joint custody both parents are "custodial parents" and neither parent is a non-custodial parents, or in other words the child has two custodial parents.

Of course not. Mom and Dad (assuming they have custody) get to decide where you live.

Both parents must consent. The god parent must petition the probate court to be appointed the permanent guardian of the child in order to obtain legal custody.

What is the intent and does it involve married or single parents?

User Avatar

A guardian must be appointed by the court pursuant to a petition for guardianship and has the legal authority to care for another individual's person and/or property. In the case of minors, a guardian is someone other than a parent. In the case of an adult, a parent can be appointed as their guardian.Custody, in this sense, refers to the care and control of a child awarded by the court usually to one or both parents. The parent who is awarded custody of a child is not referred to as their guardian.
