Thank you, I.
At this point, the biological parents
have natural rights to the child. She has extended her natural right to you via the POA.
You continue to have this right via the POA until
the Court states otherwise. The Court's order overrides the POA. So if the court awards him custody via a temporary or permanent order down the line, then the POA is voided. But until/unless that happens, the POA has you be the guardian of the child, arguably.
So until/unless he receives a court order, the POA controls and gives you the right to be a guardian to the child. However, he may seek a custody order which (if granted) would override your POA.
I hope this helps and clarifies. Good luck.
