If you have a valid court order you may take the children into your care. If the situation warrants the assistance of the local police you should contact them and show them the custody order. It would be better for all involved, especially the children if it could be handled w/o police assistance or negative confrontation.

Who is getting custody of Michael Jackson's children?

Michael's mother, Katherine, has temporary custody right now. (Today--7/21/09). However, Michael's family is currently speaking with Debbie Rowe, the biological mother of two of Michael's children, regarding custody agreements. The court hearing to determine who gets custody of the children has been delayed twice because the two parties are trying to make a settlement outside of court.

What are parents rights when children are taken into temporary protective custody?

None except to appeal the decision. They may be granted limited access, after a period of time, until a hearing before a judge to determine the reasons and long term plans for the children. If the circumstances do not warranted this action, the parents will need to treat this case as a father would trying to get custody from a mother. Detailed records need to be kept and evidence compiled.see links

If your ex husband has no blood relation to your 8 year old daughter will not sign divorce papers and now is trying to get custody does he have a chance?

Depending on the state and his relationship with the child, yes. In Pennsylvania, a man won custody even after the mother married the bio dad. If the children are better off with the stepfather, that overrides what's best for mom.

What percentage of children that are removed from parents are given to grandparents for permanent custody?

Not enough unfortunately. Usually, if the child is removed from both parents' care before legal guardianship is established, the child is remanded to the custody of the state. At that point, it becomes more difficult (and expensive) for grandparents to gain custody. There are heartbreaking stories all over the place of grandparents trying in vain to get custody of their grandchildren.
