If you have a neglect charge against you does that make you an unfit mother?

No that by itself does not make you unfit to be a mother but it does mean that you will need to learn how to be a good mother. There is no rule book but you do have to follow a few rules on how to be a Mother. The most important thing to remember is that now you have a child that is totally depended on you for everything. Food, shelter, medicne, everything from the shoes on its feet to the toys that they play with. They must right now come first. Once you figure that out the rest is easy to learn. Good luck

Any mother who cannot or will not adequately provide for her child emotionally and physically. * Unfit mother (parent) is a societal term rather than legal. What some would define as unfit would not necessarily be the same as the legal definition of what constitutes neglect and/or abuse.

This is not considered an unfit mother. Where a mother lives is not anything that makes a mother fit or unfit. A mother who is a drug addict or an alcoholic that is drunk all the time is an unfit mother.

NO. only if the mother is unfit.

the only thing in my eyes that would make a mother unfit if she is uncapable of putting her kids before drugs .

You do not take custody of a child from a mother who you think is an unfit parent. You petition a court to make a determination that the parent is unfit and grant custody or a guardianship to you. See related link regarding the factors a court considers in determining a parent to be unfit.

An unfit home is a place where children are not safe. This can be because of physical, emotional, or sexual abuse. Neglect is a factor in unfit homes. The children may not be properly looked after or have their physical or emotional needs met. Drug abuse and alcoholism in the home by a parent may be constituted as abuse, leading to an unfit home.

A cheating wife is not necessarily an unfit mother, unless she is not looking after the children properly and that fact isn't only the purview of a cheating wife.

It's not a matter of being unfit, but the best interest of the children. see link below

Many many parents drink to excess and some are violent alcoholics. The definition of an unfit mother is probably a little bit more devastating than being "upsetting".

I would think you would need to prove it in court. Whatever area you think they are unfit, you will need physical proof, not just hearsay, for example: drug addiction, mental illness, sexual abuse, neglect or abandonment. I would talk to your local Social Services and ask them what steps need to be taken.

Telephone your nearest child social services.

It's always up to the mother no matter how old she is to decide that as long as she is not a unfit mother.

If she has been found to be an unfit parent. See the related question for factors a court uses to judge a parent to be unfit.

It is unlikely that the court would order "shared custody". If the mother is unfit the grandmother can petition to be appointed the legal guardian of the child. However, the father must consent.It is unlikely that the court would order "shared custody". If the mother is unfit the grandmother can petition to be appointed the legal guardian of the child.

I know a mother who takes her children on drunken orgies with other women and men. How can I report her?
