Best Answer

It depends on how truly unfit the living situation is. If you believe the child's welfare is in danger, you should have your local department of children and families initiate an investigation. There has to be clear evidence that the child is in jeopardy for him or her to get taken out of the home.

Can custody of a child be stated in a will?

If you live in the US... Children are not property and therefore cannot be 'willed'. You can state in your will who you would like to receive custody, but the court is not required to abide by it. For example, if Mom has custody of a child, she dies and her will states that she wants her sister to receive custody, but Dad wants custody...Dad gets custody, unless he can be proved unfit, because Dad has first legal right to custody (Mom's wishes don't change that).

Can you receive child support if you have physical custody but the other parent has legal custody?

If you have physical custody by a court order then you should be entitled to child support payments. If you do not have physical custody by a court order then the physical custody order should be modified so you can receive child support. You should visit the court and ask to speak with an advocate. If that's not possible then you should obtain a copy of any custody and/or child support orders and review them with an attorney.
