Child Custody

questions & answers

Question: My friends want to give me custody of their 2 year old son, since neither is stable enough at the moment. We all agree that if we can do this, that they should still be in his life as his parents. How would we be able to go about this? Would we be able to have joint custody between the parents and a non-parent?

Answer: You would need to begin by filing with the courts your intention of Guardianship.  Go to:  http://www.azcourts.gov/selfservicecenter/Self-Service-Forms/Filing-for-Minor-Guardianship
