:Document incidents miticulouly on paper and preferrably have credible witnesses present at the time the exchange is supposed to occur. Unless you are certain the child is in immediate physical danger, do not involve law enforcement in the presence of the child/children.

After compiling documentation, hire an exceptional attorney and take the ex to court.

Judges are more inclinded to assist you if you have documentation and witnesses. Judges also will appreciate the fact that you went out of your way to not disrupt the child's life by involving law enforcement in the presence of the child. Having a cop tell either mom or dad that they cannot pick up or take a child is devistating to a child under any circumstances. Don't fall into the trap of using the children even if it is obvious that your ex is doing just that. Don't stoop to that level. Your child/children will eventually know the facts.

Take him to court! (Have you tried talking to him and asking? If so, and he said no, then you have to take him to court. If there is an order he has to listen to it.)

That non-custodial parent has no right to "keep" the child. A parent who refuses to bring the child back to the parent who has physical custody or joint custody is in contempt of court and risks losing custody.That non-custodial parent has no right to "keep" the child.

Since you haven't included any details the following is general information. The parent needs to rectify the circumstances that resulted in their losing custody in the first place if custody was taken away by a court. If the parent voluntarily consented to the change in custody they can petition the same court to end that guardianship and restore custody in the parent.

Not take but they can petition for custody in court. Unless the parent is unfit the most they will get is probably shared custody though.

If the case involves the teen's parents and custody of the teen then she/he has no standing to petition the court. A parent must do it for the child.

User Avatar

If you are divorced and granted custody that court order is valid unless the other parent (or the state) get custody for whatever reason (if both parents become unfit etc). And custody lasts until the child is 18. You can not get a guarantee from the judge that you as a parent will have custody until the child is 18. There are 2 parents and according to the law both are allowed to seek custody of their child.

No. The custodial parent cannot give custody only the court can do that. Her relinquishment of custody would require that the court allow a guardianship and appoint the guardian. If she petitions the court to appoint a guardian you should be notified by the court and will have the opportunity to object or consent.No. The custodial parent cannot give custody only the court can do that.

No, you can not choose until you are 18. If your parent wants custody he/she has to go to court and modify the court order. The court will decide if your parent is fit to take care of you.

The court would have to modify the custody order. You need to discuss it with your custodial parent.

Parents often have joint custody with one parent having physical custody. Generally, the parent with physical custody receives child support from the non-physical-custody parent. There are other arrangements whereby the parents share physical custody. States are required to have child support guidelines and the guidelines will control who pays child support and how much. The court will issue a court order to that effect.Parents often have joint custody with one parent having physical custody.

No. Only parents are granted custody of their children by a court order. You cannot assign custody to a non-parent nor will the court. When a party other than the parent gets "custody" of a child it is done via a guardianship and must be obtained through a court. The person who requests the guardianship is appointed the child's legal guardian, the child is deemed the guardian's ward, and the case will remain under the jurisdiction of the court.

For the grandparents to get the custody over the parent, they have to go through a court case and prove to their case to have custody.

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.

In most places the surviving parent will automatically be considered to have custody. If there is a reason that this should not happen, the court will appoint a guardian. Others could petition the probate court for custody.
