Temporary Custody by a Relative

Temporary Custody Attorney Serving Brevard County, Florida

Temporary custody by a relativeLife can be complicated. There are times when a parent cannot care for a child. A good parent should recognize their limitations and abilities and ALWAYS decide what is best for the child. Addiction problems, recovery challenges, medical issues, military deployment, etc., can interfere with a parent’s ability to care for a child.

Temporary custody by a relative allows a parent to transfer custody to another loving family member who can undertake parenting responsibilities TEMPORARILY, without relinquishing parental rights. Depending on the circumstances, grandparents, aunts, uncles and other extended family may need to take care of a child for some time, which can be difficult if they do not have legal custody of the child.
