Can Someone Other Than The Parent Obtain Custody?

A common question that I get is can someone other than the parent obtain custody of a child. The answer to that is yes, but that’s going to depend on a number of different factors and circumstances and then often requires a judge to make that determination.

These situations can arise for a variety of reasons and the non-parent custody can be obtained by an aunt, uncle, stepfather, grandparent, or one of the parents new spouses.
