When to Seek Emergency Temporary Custody Orders

As the name of these orders implies, emergencies are typically the basis for seeking emergency temporary custody orders. More specifically, the circumstances that can lead to people needing to petition the courts for these types of temporary child custody orders can include (but are by no means limited to):

  • The threat of a parent kidnapping a child
  • Valid suspicion that a child may be a victim of abuse in his or her home
  • A child being neglected at home
  • The parent(s) of a child being arrested or passing away (meaning that a child has no parental supervision at home).

When these or other emergency circumstances arise and endanger the safety and wellbeing of a child, any of the following people may take immediate action to try to obtain emergency temporary custody orders:

  • Another parent of a child
  • A child’s grandparents
  • Aunts, uncles and/or cousins
  • Siblings who are at least 18 years old
  • Non-relatives who have a close relationship with the child.
