Family Law Questions? Ask a Family Lawyer Online.
My name isXXXXX a licensed attorney. Glad to try and help out.
Sure sorry for the circumstances, truly. My heart goes out to you folks.
I commend you for wanting to help out. However, there is never, ever any "signing over" of child custody, despite some common misunderstandings. Rather, that decision is always and only left to the discretion of the Court. If you folks want to proceed with your plans, you need to schedule a consultation with a local family law attorney to file your case.
I am sorry.
If you have a follow-up question or need clarification, please just say the word by using "reply" to reach me.
I hope all works out and wish y'all a very happy new year!
