Temporary Concurrent Custody Attorney in Orlando

Helping Family Members Share Custody of a Child

There are times when a child may need to temporarily move in with a member of his or her extended family: an aunt, uncle, grandparent, stepparent, or other extended family member. Florida now has a way to do this without the parents giving up their custody rights. This is known as temporary and concurrent custody by an extended family member.

For personalized legal advice, call our firm at (407) 634-1830 today.

At Nix Law, P.A. in Orlando, we help families in central Florida obtain the legal authority they need to care for a child in their home. Attorney Mikaela Nix has extensive experience dealing with all types of child custody and parenting matters.

What Is Concurrent and Temporary Child Custody?

Temporary custody means you are giving a member of your extended family temporary custody of your child. This will give your family member the legal right to make decisions concerning your child's medical care, education, and other issues while the child is in your custody.

"Concurrent" means that you are not giving up your own rights as a parent. You and your extended family member will have parenting responsibility and decision-making rights at the same time.

Does My Extended Family Member Need Temporary Custody to Care for My Child?

Without a court order that states otherwise, your family member would not have the legal authority to make parenting decisions that would otherwise fall to you as the parent. Obtaining temporary and concurrent child custody through a court order gives your family member the legal right to make decisions for your child.

Your family member needs the consent of both parents to obtain temporary and concurrent custody of your child.

Some common reasons a family member may need to obtain child custody are:

  • You need to be out of the country or the state.
  • You have a serious illness or injury and are unable to care for your child.
  • You become incarcerated.
  • You are dealing with personal problems.
