In Texas, if a child is 14 or older, he/she can choose to live with a grandparent as long as permission is given by the custodial parent.
The child have to be 18 in order to choose where to live but in some states the grandparents do have the right to seek custody. But unless the parents are found unfit I can't see that you would get custody.
Only with parental permission. Minors can not choose where to live.
Yes if the child of the grandparent has traces of it.
At the age of eighteen.
A grandparent can collect child support if they are the legal guardian or custodian of the child.
I imagine the child is fond of his grandparent. Talk to the police so they can talk to the grandparent and explain the law to them. The grandparent might then change their mind.
Yes. Depends on the circumstances.
Minor's are not allowed to choose with whom they wish to live, although the judge may speak with the child and take his or her opinions into consideration when making custodial decisions. Likewise, the grandparent who has temporary custody cannot release the minor into the custody of any other person including a parent without first obtaining permission from the court.
A fourteen year can live with a grandparent if her parents are not opposed to it. If one parent is opposed, then the child cannot move unless the courts orders so.
A 16-year-old cannot leave home without parental consent. If they do and the parents call the police (and I'm assuming they would) then the police will pick the child up and return him/her home. Despite the fact that you are family, it is possible that you (the grandparent) could be charged with something along the lines of harboring a runaway/interring with child custody/contributing to the delinquency of a minor/etc (the exact charges depending on where you live). The grandparent can petition the court for custody, but unless they are able to prove the parents to be unfit in some way...
child is slow grandparent is slower and parent is the fastest.
yes, as long as the parents agree to allow their child to live with their grandparents its fine as long as the grandparents can support the child.
Yes, so long as the grandparent is able to care for the child and he/she has the permission or rights to take care of them as a guardian.
a 14 year old has the right and responsibility to chose where they live.
if you are the legal guardian and custodian of the child
It depends on your jurisdiction. In the United States the parents are required by law to support their children. If the grandparent has custody the child support payments must be paid over to the grandparent. It's your child and you should support her.
If a child wants to live with the child's boyfriend, then the child needs to be 18.
Yes, as far as our law here in India is concerned. In the US a child can not choose where to live until they have reached the legal adult age, usually 18.
The judge will consider what the child wants but will not do what the child wants. The judge will make a determination based upon what he/she believes, within the framework of law and reason, is best for the child. A fifteen year old may have the right to say what he believes is in his best interest, but he does not get to make the final decision.
The minimum age that the child can decide who he wants to live with is 18 years.
i can help you! you can come live with me and we can be room ates!!!!! ok!!!!!
The parents pay for their child.
If the grandparent likes the child a lot to a point they can do what ever they want to do .
Yes the biological parents should pay child support for their child if the grandparent has physical custody of the child pursuant to a court order.
