If the child is living in NE now, there is a strong chance you will have to pursue a modification in NE under the UCCJEA. You would need to file a Complaint to modify the existing custody decree.
The Court will have to decide what is in the best interests of the child. There appear to be three logical choices: 1. Remain with mom, who might be going to prison for a long time. 2. Stay with grandparents. 3. Move to TN with you.
It sounds like there has been a temporary hearing, but I'm not 100% sure. I'd have to get more case info.
I can help you with that. Feel free to call me at 402-321-0580.
You would need to file a request to have a custody modification take place, but it will be in Nebraska. Not much else to do at this point. If you do not have a legal custody order then you could file it in TN. Hope that helps. Give us a call we can help. We do offer a free consultation to assist people accused of offense(s). Give us a call at (402) 455-1711.
