If A Parent Gave Up Temporary Guardian Agreement Whats The Procedure To Receiving Full Custody Back In Newyork

Q: Whats the procedure to getting back full custody when a temporary guardian agreement has been in affect over a year

A: David’s Answer: It depends – did you give up custody to a child welfare agency, or to an individual? If the former, you must contact the caseworker first about terminating the voluntary placement. If the latter, you should request custody back, and if that fails, file a custody petition along with an order to show cause demanding custody back. Call a Bronx Child Custody attorney to schedule a consult for a full assessment.
