Please take all legal papers re the father and any court documents and see "Child Welfare." They can help to answer your question. Good luck Marcy If the father was the abuser, CPS will monitor the familyn a regular basis, including interviews with the child, relatives, teachers, etc., until said child reaches the age of majority. If the father was not the abuser there may be followed ups for a short period of time to see how the child is adjusting. If there are no specific terms cited in the custody order,there will be no monitoring by CPS/DFS unless a "just cause" claim is presented to the agency of jurisdiction.

Can a non custodial parent get full custody if the custodial parent is charged with neglect?

Being charged with neglect means there has not yet been a final determination. If the custodial parent is found guilty of child neglect the court can terminate their custody. Child neglect is an element of child endangerment and is one of the factors a court considers to find a parent unfit. Unless the non-custodial parent has also been determined to be an unfit parent they would be the next choice to whom the court would award legal custody.The non-custodial parent should consult with an attorney who specializes in custody issues as soon as possible. The attorney can review the situation and explain the options and how to proceed.See related question.

How can your child's father's mother get emergency temporary custody of your child with no proof of abuse or neglect or endangerment?

To my knowledge, if a state agency is not involved because of negelct or abuse, your mother-in-law can get temporary custody if you go to family court and ask that she take temporary custody until you are ready to take them back; it could be because you are having financial difficulty, hospitalization or other issue that you need to deal with As far as your mother-in-law getting custody against your will, I don't think that can happen. If it is happening, you need to contact your local Child Protective Services.
