Hello and thanks for using JUST ANSWER. I'm sorry to hear about your family's recent tragedy. The temporary custody order which was in place prior to your daughter's death was not voided by her death. The court that issued it still has jurisdiction over the child. In order to change that, or to seek visitation rights, you will have to petition the court for that.
I hope that this ANSWER is helpful and that you will now enter a positive rating so that I will be credited for assisting you. Thanks for using JUST ANSWER.
