This does not sound at all like you are being played. When a person dies, everything he or she owned in his or her individual name (with no beneficiary designations) must go through a legal process called probate in order to get those things transferred to the intestate heirs (no will) or...Read more »

Grandmother is already taking care of 5 children & can’t take care of an infant. She wants to find a good family to give full custody to. Can she do this without parents signing anything also? G’mother is in Louisiana and new family would possibly be in MS
abandonment in the state of MS, and the non-custodial parent is willing to sign them, but the children aren’t being adopted by someone else, will the non-custodial parent still be required to pay child support after they have relinquished their legal rights?
No. Once the parental relationship is terminated, all obligations cease. The exception is that if the non-custodial parent had accrued a child support arrearage prior to the termination and a contempt action was brought to recover those funds, the arrearage is still owed.

The answer is not necessarily. You don’t say where the child is now or why and when custody was transferred. Depending on the circumstances, you may want to try to obtain possession of the child and then immediately petition the chancery court for custody. However, not having physical possession...Read more »
You don’t say whether or not the custody was given to you by the court through a court order or whether it is a private agreement between you and the parent(s). If you were awarded temporary custody through a court order, then you will need to go back to that court and asked that custody be...Read more »
Conservator took money out of her ward's bank account without telling her. When ward checked bank balance, she noticed money missing. conservator stated that she needed to borrow it and told her ward, "Don't worry, I will replace it".
A conservator is supposed to act in the best interest of the ward, which means that a bank account that belongs to the ward should not be used as a source of funds for the conservator, even if the conservator is using it as a loan.

You need to hire an attorney immediately in order to make sure your rights as a parent are preserved. You do not say why your son was in the hospital or the reason that the hospital called CPS, so I cannot speak to that. CPS will eventually put you on a parenting plan that you should follow. That...Read more »
