De Facto Custody -Parenting By A Third Party

On Behalf of | Aug 24, 2022 | Firm News

Are you a grandparent, aunt or uncle or stepparent who has been left to care for a child by his or her parent or parents and do not whether you should seek custody of the child. There are factors that a court must consider before awarding custody of a child to a third party. De facto parenting can be complicated, but if you do nothing, a parent can reappear and take the child, without any waring and there may be little you can do about if that occurs and you have taken no action. My law office just successfully obtained custody for the grandparents of a child who had been in their care for several years. If you are in this situation or you are a parent who has your child in the care of a third party and are unsure how to proceed, please feel free t contact my office for a free telephone consultation.
