Temporary custody (3 months or less) can be granted by the parents of the minor child. Written documentation must be given by the parents so the caregiver adult can enroll the child in school, get medical care, and so forth. The date when care is to begin and end must also be included as well as financial agreements. For permanent or long term custodial rights the interested party must apply for guardianship in the appropriate state court (usually probate) in the city or county of residence. It is a given that many children live with grandparents and other relatives without means of a written parental agreement or court order. However, without such documentation it is not possible to enroll a child in school or other activities nor is it possible to obtain medical care for the child except in a life threatening situation. When such things occur, state social services usually become involved and it results in a lot of legal complications that could have been avoided if proper procedures were followed.

Can my grandson move out and live with another family we have custody of him now and his parents have passed on?

You haven't provided his age or the details of the "other family". He can make that decision when he reaches eighteen years of age. If he is still a minor the parents in the other family would need to establish legal custody in the court where you obtained custody. You would need to relinquish custody.


If a Woman lives with a man for 10 years who also has custody of his 12 year old child the man dies what happens to the child?

If you're in the US, living with someone gives you no legal rights at all. The mother of the child would automatically receive custody, unless she's unfit, in which case custody would be awarded to a legal family member (grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc). But even if you were married your rights would be limited, because in most states step-parents would have no right to custody in this situation unless no other family member wanted custody. You need to talk to a local attorney for advice.
