I have been granted emergency custody of my 2 grandchildren

I have been granted emergency custody of my 2 grandchildren in TN. My soon to be ex wife is now in a better position to take care of them. She lives in Iowa. Can I transfer emergency custody to her? Neither my daughter or their daddy's have filed any potinions in regards ***** ***** children. They are all drug addicts and tho I will keep the kids with me I know long term they will be better off in Iowa with their grandmother.

I have joint custody 50/50 of my 17 year old son. He does

I have joint custody 50/50 of my 17 year old son. He does not want to spend time with his mother, as far as living with her half the time. He goes to school where I live, she lives 35 miles away and continues to insist he go there for weekends etc. I really dont want a lawyer battle as he will be 18 in June, my question is can she legally make a 17 year old go to her house?? Thank you

I currently live in Tennessee, and I am needing to move to San Diego. My divorce happened in IL. I have joint custody with primary residence (he is actually with me all week) father gets him on the weekend. The papers say the child cannot be permanently removed from the state of Illinois pursuant to Chapter 750 ilcs 5/608 without further order of the court.Can I leave the state of Tennessee to move to California without legal repercussions since we both moved to Tennesse? Will I get into trouble does the parenting agreement switch to Tennesse ? Or is this a loophole for which I can move.

I have an autistic daughter and my ex, my daughters primary

I have an autistic daughter and my ex, my daughters primary custodian, is now stating she cant work and care for our daughter. She has mentioned wanting to modify the order for increased child support if she stops working... can she do this?
