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.
If the reason they took the others are still there or if there are other reasons you are found unfit to be a parent, yes they can.
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.
how can you lose custody of your children?
Yes, they certainly can. Permanent custody can always be contested, but once parental rights have terminated, there is no challenge available.
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.
When both parents are deemed unfit by a court and social services, it is possible for grandparents to get custody of the children under a judge's order. The grandparents wishing to get custody of minor children should petition a court for a hearing on the matter.
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.

No, not until they are released from DHS by the court that issued the order.
That is impossible to know without knowing WHY they are involved and all the circumstances. I suggest you ask your lawyer.
If you and your husband have been separated for over a year and he is not paying child support, you must consult a lawyer and have a custody agreement before taking the children out of state.
Unless someone proves it's a lie, yes.
You will probably need to take it to court, or report to child services. You have to have evidence if anything if you are going to gain custody. Now this may not be a accurate answer, but that's what I would do.
There are three types of joint custody.Joint Legal Custody Similar to sole custody, whereby one parent still retains primary residential custody and control of the children.Joint Physical Custody Otherwise referred to as Split Custody, each parent has residential custody and control of the children 50% of the time.Bird Nest Custody The children remain in the family home and each parent resides there for a designated period of time, then switch.
Depends, why are they asking you to submit to a drug test? If it's just a random test for no reason, there's not much they can do. However, if there is a history of neglect or abuse then they have the power to petition the court for custody of ALL of the children in your home.

The non-custodial parent can go to court and request custody of the children. A judge will decide which parent should be awarded custody of the children.
