I was awarded sole legal custody of my grandson in April 2013. There was no visitation ordered for the parents. (parents drug addicts and homeless) Very little contact with the child by parents, their choice. This is NOT temporary custody but my order also does not specify permanent either. My question is, if one or both of the parents complete drug rehab, get housing and jobs, can they re-gain custody? I think it would be in the child"s best interest to remain with me and not removed from the one stable home he knows for the past 6 yrs. The child is 7 yrs old. Thank you for your advice/answer.
