You need a power of guardianship to be certain you have rights to make decisions concerning the child's welfare. This can be a hand-written power of guardianship that the parents give to you. Google to find example of power of guardianship papers.

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.

It depends on the state, usually the state takes the children into custody, or the closest family relative.

not without your parents permission, but if they do, they should lose custody rights.

Yes. I am a family member that has full legal custody of a my grandychildren because both parents were found unfit by a Juvenile Court and Children Services agreed because of "best interest of the child" The parents were given 22 month to work a court order caseplan, but failed to comply so I was given custody of the children. The parents have visits on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of the month and no overnights. The parents were also ordered to pay monthly child support.

No. This is the hirearchy in the usual situation for custody rights for a minor (child under 18 years of age), but there are exceptions (abusive family, etc.) Parents The Parents immediate family (excepting children) Adopted Guardians, or a sibling over the age of 18 See: Discussion page.

Often, a family member assumes custody of the child, either on their own (in which case they need to get legal custody ASAP) or through the State's child protection/child welfare agency.

No. Your parents must come to an agreement and change the custody order filed in the family court.

An intact family can't do that. A juvenile detention is related to the commission of a crime, so only the court does that. You can give up the child to family services, but the other parent can challenge for custody.

The Axel Freeman order is a custody and visitation schedule and is used when a child is young and the non custodial parent is busy with work and not involved in the day to day care. An example would be alternating custody on weekends and one night a week with the non custodial parent.

Generally, yes, unless the case was impounded for some reason. You can visit your local child and family court and check the index under the names of the parents or the child in the case of custody via a legal guardianship.Generally, yes, unless the case was impounded for some reason.

You are a grandparent since you have not adopted the child but your role is to do what a mother does as well. The biological parents can very well have visitation. You and your grandchild are definitely a family.

Yes, joint legal custody means joint decision making regarding a child's medical treatment and care. Consult your custody documentation or an attorney familiar with family law in your area for more specific information.

If the parents want to move, the girl must go with them unless she is 18. If she is old enough and responsible, some parents let their kids live with a trusted family until they finish high school - but that is totally up to the parents because they are legally responsible for their kids. Another family cannot get custody of a girl just because they don't want her to move. A judge won't take a biological daughter away from the family for a stupid reason like that. If the girl is abused, neglected or just just lives with her friends, they have a better chance of attaining custody.

No. If this is a case where you want to live with the non-custodial parent, then the non-custodial parent can petition for a change in custody. If this is a case where you want to live somewhere other than with a parent, that won't happen without your parents permission unless your parents are proven to be unfit (it takes A LOT to prove unfitness) and even then you may end up in the custody of the state, instead with whomever it is that you're wanting to live with (for example, the court will not award custody to your boyfriends parents, but they award custody to one of your family members).

The biological parents are responsible to pay for their child and will have to pay child support so unless the parents take care of it the family member have to go to court and apply for it if the child will be staying for a longer period or time.

Possible, but difficult if other family members are available to take children.
