Many things are taken into consideration when determining an unfit parent. If a parent neglects their child, they are unfit.


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.


If it was intentional, and not an accident, that parent should be in jail. This question is left up to the interpretation of the circumstances.


Generally, if one parent is found to be unfit the other parent will have sole legal and physical custody. Courts favor the biological parent in regards to custody.Generally, if one parent is found to be unfit the other parent will have sole legal and physical custody.

Child protective services does no decide if a parent is unfit. A judge will decide that. Child protective services can and will however, help the judge to decide by presenting any evidence they have found that may prove the parent unfit.

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.


Yes. Leaving children unsupervised is considered child endangerment regardless of who has "full custody". That could lead to the parent being deemed unfit and they could lose custody.

Being a unfit parent and/or give up your parental rights or have them taken away, is usually not something that means you get out of paying child support.


Not unless you are a unfit parent.


Yes, if the court determines the custodial parent is unfit and the child would be better off with the father. However, he will still owe the arrears to the other parent.Yes, if the court determines the custodial parent is unfit and the child would be better off with the father.

In most countries, the government cannot ban you from producing children. However, that does not always mean they will let you keep them if you are considered an unfit parent.


The situation should be reported to the child protective services. The parent may need help and they need to be informed about child endangerment. Leaving small children under the care and supervision of a child is considered child endangerment in most jurisdictions and can result in the parent being declared unfit.The situation should be reported to the child protective services.

The most likely scenario is that the children will live with the other parent as long as that parent was not deemed unfit while the custodial parent was alive. If that parent was denied custody for cause the courts may consider another gaurdian should the non custodial parent still be considered unsuitable.


To get soul custody of your children you must prove the other parent is unfit. If they have any addictions, proving they are unfit will not be hard.


Abusive Drug Addict Cheating on spouse Disinterested


Not an issue to be raised in this context.


am i unfit parent cuz i was in c.p.s


Yes you can if you can prove the parent if unfit and can not raise the child in a stable environment.



A person can be proven unfit by proving the person is using drugs, abusing a child, and pictures of abuse or a filthy home.


It's possible, if you can substantially prove to a court that the parent is unfit. Custody would then go to the other parent, assuming there is one, they want the child and are fit to raise it. But you could certainly make a case for custody.


You would have to show that he is an unfit parent, and that it is in the best interest of the child for the mother to be the custodial parent.
