Legal Answers
1 Questions Answered
Q. Can you lose custody of your children if you live with your cousin
A: A Court will often look at the best interests of the child when determining whether a parent should be awarded custody or retain custody in a modification. If you are awarded custody in a prior court order, the burden for changing custody is often much higher. Each case is unique. Whether a parent loses custody is dependent on the specific details of your particular case. I recommend that you speak to a licensed and experience family law attorney to discuss the unique issues that pertain to your case.
