My son's father died of cancer. I just found out yesterday when I received a letter from the child support office that he passed away a MONTH earlier. Apparently, my son has been living with my estranged parents for at least 3-4 months, and now they're seeking custody. As of today, they've filed a petition, but I haven't been served, because "they didn't know where I lived."
What is the legal process in contacting a non-custodial parent when a custodial parent dies?Wouldn't it be considered parental interference to assume custody and NOT inform the non-custodial parent that the custodial parent is deceased? Do I have the right to show up at my estranged parents house and take my son and his belongings home with me?
