Ocilla, GA asked in Family Law, Child Custody and Child Support for Georgia

Q: Can CPS make my hsbd pay cs to his daughters uncle if there is no existing order and hes filed for legitimacy/custody?

Filed Aug 17th ..Havent got a court date since we filed and its been over a month. Now cps is calling a meeting and dna test tomorrow. Child was place w maternal uncle by cps bc mother is mentally unstable to say the least and abuses drugs. She has an older sister as well, that doesn't belong to my husband. Her father has to do dna test at same time for cps...We do let her come whenever her sister comes over and love her like our own too. I understand not separating them but my husband wants his child and we would make sure they saw each other ,our houses are 4 min away from the other. What chance do my husband and I have at getting his child?

A: As long as the child is in care, the department can seek financial support from the biological parents. Your husband should consult legal counsel to determine his options to have the child placed in his care.
