My sister 2nd child was murdered at 13months by her boyfriend.She was also charged for his murder.She did her time in prison and she’s still on probation and from what I was told, she may never get custody of her 3rd child even though she think she will.The father cannot get custody of the child neither because he have some things on his background.She just recently had her 3rd baby a month ago and CPS came to the hospital and placed him with my parents.I want custody of him so how can I go about getting custody because my parents already have her 1st child, due to CPS, and they don’t want to keep taking care of the kids she keep having because they are getting up in age now so they also want me to have custody of the baby.
If the child is in CPS care then before placement can be changed you would likely have to have an approved home study conducted. If CPS approves you for a potential placement then it is possible that you could petition for the child to reside with you in your home. If you have not already done so, I would highly suggest that you reach out to an experienced family law attorney in your area to discuss what you want to accomplish and evaluate your options based upon the law and the facts of your case.
