I am getting ready to move into a new home and would like my parents to take temporary custody of my son until I get everything settled.
Would that be possible? How long does temporary custody last?
While I am not licensed to practice law in your state and cannot give you legal advice, I can give some general observations on this issue based on the jurisdiction where I practice.
You could set up a temporary guardianship that expires on a specific date. The expiration date could be in one month or six months, depending on what you and your parents agree to. You need to be very careful, however, about opening yourself up to a custody action from the child’s father during this period that you are not exercising direct custody.
Family law is based on statutes that are state specific. I am licensed to practice in Nebraska and am not able to give specific and detailed legal advice regarding your situation. You need to contact an attorney licensed in your state who specializes in domestic litigation.
