The courts prefer the child be placed with a member of the family if they are fit to look after this child. However, as Godparents you do have rights to fight this and if you have spent a great deal of time with this child and the 3 of you have bonded I'd go for it and fight it in court! Good luck! Marcy

How can a parent give up custody rights of incorrigible children?

To give up your children to the state means giving up your parental rights, not just custody and the state will not allow that if it's just because the children are not obeying. Children who comes from good homes do not benefit from ending up in fostercare. It's not a miracle solution. You contact the socialworkers and they make a visit and see what is going on and if the court find it justifiable they will let you give up custody to them. You will most likely still pay child support and not get parental rights back.

That depends entirely on where you live.

Check your state child custody laws. If you live in a joint custody state, you'd have to gain his permission or fight for a court order that gives you full custody.
