Thank you for your follow-up.Provided that CPS does not block your ability to sign over guardianship to the other party, and that party is deemed to be "fit" and able to care for the child, that may well be the best decision. CPS would be unable to continue their investigation unless they also deem or believe that your other children are somehow in danger, and their case against you should be closed. This is a very legitimate decision to make if you are trying to make CPS no longer a part of this investigation or review.Good luck to you!
Thank you for your follow-up.The 'interstate legality' would be for the other parent to initiate the request in California courts, and the other parent (the mother), agree to the change in custody. Such a petition, if not contested, is granted almost as a rubber-stamp request. This would not eb 'abandonment' since the child is being clearly transferred under the care of an another parent. What it can create is an obligation from the mother to pay child support to the other parent for the child, and of course if child support is being paid by the other parent, that support would cease.Good luck.
