Poor parenting choices can become a matter of family law

California children may belong to the fortunate group that has an extended family to love and care for them. Sometimes, when a parent makes poor choices, he or she can lose rights to physical custody of a child. In these situations, the extended family may feel the desire to make themselves available to provide guardianship for a child. Family law courts regularly hear cases involving these issues. 

Recently, one California mother inexplicably left her young son, who was deaf and unable to communicate, at a busy train station. Law enforcement and other people at the station attempted to speak to the child using sign language, but the child was unable to respond. The strange circumstances appeared on the local news as people at the station attempted to figure out to whom the child belonged. Police tried to keep the child safe and calm as they investigated, and bought him lunch and stayed by his side. 

A family friend was shocked to realize that she knew they boy. She was able to get in touch with family members, who immediately rushed to the boy's aid. When the mother returned to the station, she was placed under arrest for child endangerment. 

When family members suspect a parent is not capable of properly caring for a child, they may want to step in and help, but worry that they do not understand family law. In these situations, it can be helpful to contact an experienced attorney. An attorney may be able to assist families as they learn what their options are and take legal action to gain custody or guardianship of a child.
