Third Party Custody Arrangements

In some situations, children will not remain with either of their parents but will instead live with a third person, such as a grandparent, aunt, or cousin. A court typically awards third-party custody when:

  • The parents do not want custody (considered deliberate desertion/abandonment)
  • Child abuse/neglect is suspected or proven
  • Substance abuse is suspected or proven
  • Parents are unable to provide basic necessities such as food, shelter, and clothing
