Recent Temporary Custody questions

My brother and s girlfriend had their child taken away at a

My brother and his girlfriend had their child taken away at a week old due to injuries that were sustained. Nobody supposedly knows where they came from. He is almost a year now. There is a hearing scheduled in December to find out if the parents will get him back or if he will go up for adoption. My brother went to jail yesterday for domestic violence. His girlfriend had her 2 daughters taken away as well. I just found out this nephew exists. Is there any possibility that I can adopt him, take custody or guardianship of him if I live in California and am merely the aunt? Will they get him back?

I went out of the country weeks travel. I informed the Dad

Hello, I went out of the country for 2 weeks for international travel. I informed the Dad and our Son's Minor's Counsel but both claim that proper notice was not given. So the Minor's Counsel filed an emergency motion asking Court that a) I return immediately, b) Father to have temporary physical custody until the next court hearing date which is on 6/26.I returned. We already have a custody plan in place. On 6/26, will the original custody orders remain or do I have to fight for custody all over again?

My wife and I are currently separated and she has left the

My wife and I are currently separated and she has left the marital home (6.28.16) and has yet to inform me where my child resides at night. She filed an EPO and PPO against me and during the court hearing (7.19.16), the judge dismissed her claims. Since the hearing she has made it challenging for me to see our daughter and refuses to see me on a daily basis. She disconnected the phone and disallowed contact with my daughter, until I secured a prepaid line. Am I able to petition the court for a restraining order against her for emotional abuse? She suffers from diagnosed manic depression and anxiety and I am concerned with the safety of our child.

My husband and I were granted temporary custody of our 2 yr

My husband and I were granted temporary custody of our 2 yr old grandson 8 weeks ago. The putative father, who lives with his sister, was given supervised visitation every other weekend. The father and his sister, who is named as a supervisor, are not following the guidelines of supervised visitation with the excuse that until they have "the papers" they don't know what the rules are and noone has explained anything to them.

My husband and I have agreed to separate, though we haven't

My husband and I have agreed to separate, though we haven't done it officially yet.He is living separately, but still treats my house like it is his when it suits him - he lives in an RV on my driveway right now.I have three children and I work full time. I own the house I live in, and my name only is on the title.I am a British citizen (and permanent resident of the US) and would like to take my kids back to the UK to live. He hasn't been opposed to this, but I get the idea that if I tried to have him sign something, he would fight me.He has no interest in our children.He is on 100% disability from the Navy, and is going to school through the GI bill.How can I protect my kids?Thanks,K
