YES, IF YOU ARE GOING THROUGH A DIVORCE, YOU NEED TO ASK FOR CUSTODY AS PART OF THE DIVORCE SETTLEMENT. THIS WOULD BE THE BEST TIME TO DO IT BECAUSE IF SOCIAL SERVICES ALREADY TOOK THE CHILDREN FROM THE MOTHER , THE JUDGE WOULD EASILY GRANT YOU CUSTODY THE CHILDREN.

Yes, they certainly can. Permanent custody can always be contested, but once parental rights have terminated, there is no challenge available.


If children have lived with their father for two years but would like to live with their mother again but the father will not let them is there anything stating they can or cannot?

I think what you're saying is that there is no court order in place. If that is the case, then neither parent has legal custody, so who ever has the children then has custody. So, if the children were to return to the mothers care, or if the mother were to obtain the children she would then have custody. This is the case in North Carolina. I can't speak to other states. However, I would like to issue a warning. It is in the best interest of the children for the parents to come to an agreement about the custody of the children. Parents who are separated should still work together to ensure the well-being a safety of their children. If the mother is a drug user, has a violent boyfriend, or anything else that might put children at risk, then be warned that if the mother does remove the children from the father unwillingly - it is likely that he will make a report to Child Protective Services. If CPS finds out that the mother is an unsafe caregiver, it is likely the department will place the children with the father and give him full custody - with a court order.

Parents who don't live together have joint custody (also called shared custody) when they share the decision-making responsibilities for, and/or physical control and custody of, their children. Joint custody can exist if the parents are divorced, separated, or no longer cohabiting, or even if they never lived together.

How could you get custody of your brothers children?

It depends on your local laws. The first thing you have to do is get the advice of a lawyer. But after that, you'll have to file papers with the courts to have your brother declared as an unfit parent, and then file for custody of the children. There will more than likely be an investigation by children and family services before the children will be removed.
