Thank you for your for your follow up.
Was the custody approved or ordered by the local family court?
Was the child custody ever reviewed by the family court?
Thank you for your follow up.
Were there any court proceeding related to custody before your son was given to you?
Did the court order any custody prior to the voluntary transfer of custody?
Thank you for the clarification.
Generally, the way to change custody, is to file Petition to Modify Child Custody with the local family court that had ordered the original child custody and has jurisdiction over the minor child and the judge will review the petition and response from the other parent and will hold a hearing at which a decision will be made by the court whether to modify current child custody and generally the judge will make such decision based on the current law and also what is in the best interest of the minor child.
I wish you the best of luck!
