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.

Yes, the judge can over rule the custody order due to neglect on ones behalf.

When a child is taken by the state, the parents have to follow a case plan to ensure safety of the children. Children go into state custody in cases of abuse and neglect.

If the new parents agree to it or if their parental rights are taken away due to neglect etc you can file for custody as a grandparent if that is legal in your state.

You have to petition the court for it. There has to be a big change in circumstance. Neglect, abuse ect.

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.

When trying to gain custody of younger siblings, abuse and neglect have to be proven. Some states are more third party friendly, and you will need an attorney to petition the court.

If you suspect neglect, you can call your local child services and post a complaint. You can tell them who you are and how concerned you are.

Only if you can prove in the courts that her addiction is harmful and is causing severe neglect to her children.

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.

You would have to get a court order. There is going to have to be abuse or neglect in order for them to do that.

You haven't provided any details. Generally, if the conditions that resulted in the loss of custody still exist the answer is yes. Especially if the prior findings involve abuse and/or neglect.

How long will you neglect me? Neglect will ruin a relationship. Simple neglect killed the roses.

Yes, but the circumstances would have to be extreme. Courts are very reluctant torevoke custody rights from a parent(s) unless there is substantial evidence that neglect or abuse has occurred. The main issue courts take into consideration when granting custody,(sole or joint), is the well-being of the child, not the wishes of the parent(s).

Yes, it is possible in cases such as child abuse, abandonment, neglect or if the parents are deceased and there are no other living relatives who are willing to take custody of the child. If that is the case you should consult with an attorney who specializes in custody issues and adoptions. The legal process will be complicated and you will need expert advice and guidance.

Neglect is a noun and a verb. Noun: The parents were accused of neglect. Verb: Don't neglect your children.

This is tricky. 'Care' has several meanings.If you mean the verb to care, then nurse, nurtureand protect are all synonyms. An antonym would be neglect.If you meant, for example the noun care, as in custody of a person, then protection, supervision and tutelageare synonyms. An antonym would be the noun neglect.

Salutary neglect was instituted by Prime Minister Robert Walpole. This was because he believed if the colonists were free from restrictions they would flourish.
