Q: My two grandchildren have lived with me from birth but my housing complex said that i need custody of the children to add them to my lease . They’re parents are hard working single mothers and are not on drugs or anything just need help with a stable place to stay and help watching the kids while they work the grand children are 6 and 10 years old.
A: David’s Answer: Well, this would have me confused – are the children actually living with you, or do they merely stay with you while the mothers are at work? The Court would only grant you custody or guardianship if the children are in your household the majority of the time (unless other factors exist). Call a Bronx Child Custody attorney to schedule a consult for more info.
