To my knowlege the father has not filed for any type of legal rights. I just spoke with him on the phone and the only type of court proceding to date has been the mother (my daughter) filing for child support from him and some other type of government assistance programs (like daycare).
Is that our next step - filing for legal custody or guardianship for the father? He is currently living with his mother and she is willing for them to all reside in her home. The children would be safe. Who do we contact; what do we do?
your lst sentence is unclear --
'Without emergency custuody the mother would not have to grant him the right and the ability to take the children." Please clarify.
How does one file for emergency custody? Where does he need to go? Who does he need to talk to? Should we hire an attorney? Who?
