Ok
Assuming there is no danger in allowing her to live with her bio mom, and she is given a POA temporary guardianship, the parents can consent to her living there.
It would only be a real legsl problem if it presented a danger to the child or was done without the permission or consent of the parents.

The adopted child’s mother is very controlling I doubt she would allow it if she just showed up with out us interfering with her arriving her could we get in trouble
In “trouble”? No.
But the bio mom would simply call the police and have the minor brought back to you as a runaway and you would be required to take her back in to your home while she is a minor.
The bio mom has no legal obligation take her in to her home.

She wanted to live with bio mom the adopted mom would be the issue
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I’m married to bio mom
The adoptive mother could force the child’s return, but the adoptive mom would only have a legal issue if she hid the child from her adoptive mom or otherwise violated police or court order to return her.
If the police were never called, then there is not an issue.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
