Grandmother asks “Is this Legal?” in Child Custody on

Okay Grandmothers, grandfathers, grandparents, aunts, uncles and all Caring Relatives…once you have been court-order some kind of #ChildCustody or Visitation Rights you are now entitled to substantive due process and procedural due process and have a right to your day in court about these issues.

A Grandmother asked on whether “it was legal” for another relative to take Child Custody away from her without letter her know. There are legal processes that allow for that at the very beginning of a case but you are entitled to either retrieve copies of those documents from the Courthouse or “be served” with copies.

Long story short, it’s not legal to take Child Custody away from a Caring Relative without going through the correct process and giving that Caring Relative an opportunity to make their case for what’s in the best interests of a child or children.

More importantly, though, just asking “is this legal” isn’t going to do you any good. You’ve got to take action, (just like the Other Side did) if you are going to get anything done. Being armed with information is important, but it only does any good when you’re prepared to pull the trigger.
