Get Custody Back From Grandmother
by Pauline from Miramar, Florida, Broward County
How do I revoke temporary custody from my mother? I just turned 25 years old. I had been facing some very hard times.
My mother had begged me before hand to give her custody of one of my children so that when she dies they can get social security and she also asked my sister for 1 of her children.
Unfortunately, I soon needed the help and accepted her temporary custody, and she has now put me on child support and giving me problems about getting them back. What do I do?
Answer to Florida Child Custody Question
According to Florida Statute 751 Temporary Custody of a Minor Child by an Extended Family Member:At any time, either or both of the child’s parents may petition the court to modify or terminate the order granting temporary custody.
The court shall terminate the order upon a finding that the parent is a fit parent, or by consent of the parties.
The court may modify an order granting temporary custody if the parties consent or if modification is in the best interest of the child.
The statute also states that the Order for Temporary Custody should specify a duration of time for the temporary custody to be in effect.Notice:
