Temporary Custody of Minor Children
Sometimes parents are able to recognize that they are not in a good place to be able to care for their children and want to allow a family member or close family friend to care for their children for a specific amount of time. When everyone agrees to this arrangement they often forget or do not think about needing legal paperwork to authorize the family member or close family friend to care for the child. However, without the proper paperwork, the caregiver will experience difficulty enrolling a child in school, obtaining needed medical services for a child, and other obstacles. When everyone is in agreement, it typically only takes a few weeks for the appropriate paperwork to be filed and a court to approve the temporary arrangement, call our office today to assist you.
