I got custody of.my nephew while.my sister was incarcerated 13 years ago. She now wants custody of him. What are.my options?

If you have custody pursuant to a court order, she would have to sue to modify that order, and she would have to prove a material change in circumstances adverse to the best interest of the child has occurred in your home since the date of the most recent order, and that modification of custody is in the best interest of the child. That is a difficult burden of proof to meet. It is not enough for her to show that her own situation has improved. Consult a local attorney to discuss this further.
