Child custody requires a court order. What happens when a parent with custody drops the child off and says he/she now no longer wants custody? Just because the parent with custody of the child drops the child off and says he/she no longer wants custody, that won't prevent the parent from later demanding the return of the child. Custody orders remain in force until they are modified by the court with jurisdiction over the child. Visit www.wtylermoore.com for more information or call 713-322-3950 and ask for W Tyler Moore.
I've had inquiries from parents and other relatives who have been placed in that postion. The fact that the child was dropped off and left is very helpful to fight the demanded return of the child, but court orders are necessary to make it stick. Modification of child custody is not a DIY issue. It requires an experienced child custody attorney.
