My 18 year old son and his girlfriend live in my home the girlfriend is on house arrest pending trial am I able to file emergencry custody of my grandson since the mother is pending a serious trial Incase she gets convicted? My son is in agreement that I should get custody since I’m taking care of them all.
Has your son had a paternity test to prove that he is the father? If so, you can wait until she is in jail before filing with the court for anything. Once she goes to jail or prison, then you can file for custody and your son can sign the agreed entry letting you have custody. You are better off if you use an attorney to help you.
There are 2 options you could follow: 1.) as a Grandparent but only after your son is determined to be the Father.; or 2.) simply as a concerned third party. Which way you go will be dependent on a number of factors. You will need to consult an attorney experienced in this area for the best approach to follow.
