for medical reasons, i got full legal custody of a non-relared 16 year old girl. she and her mom no longer want her to live here. how can i cancel custody and give up legal responsibility?
You cannot "cancel" a custody order. However, you or the mother may petition to have the order modified as the result of a material change in circumstances. If both you and the mother agree to the modification, then the matter is fairly simple. It would involve opening the case, submitting a petition, and an agreed order signed by the parties. You should contact a lawyer to help you.
If you found my answer instructive, I hope you will consider marking my answer as "helpful" of "best." Please be advised that attorney answers to questions are for general purposes only and do not establish an attorney-client relationship.
