Las Vegas, NV asked in Family Law and Juvenile Law for Nevada

Q: If my daughter lives with my mom but I still have full custody of her, who is legally responsible for her?

My husband, my daughter and I were living with my mom. My adult son also lives there. My mom kicked me and my husband out but my daughter stayed because we have no place and are now homeless. My mother is not taking my kid to school or making her do her work. We told my mom when she kicked us out we could not come over every day and take her to school or pick her up. Who will get in trouble if she isn't going to school?

A: Unless there is a court order giving your parents either guardianship or custody of the children, both parents are still legally responsible for the children.
