    Question Custody other than parental + kids involved in divorce?

    Arkansas


    My children are currently under legal guardianship of my parents. Will the children be involved in my up coming divorce or not due to that circumstance?

    My apologies, my computer wouldn't let me preview my post.

    My Parents have custody of my kids. I am currently in the works of divorcing their biological father. We both signed our children to my parents due to extenuating circumstances. So, What I would like to know is, will there be need to worry about including them in the up coming legalities of the divorce or not, since they are currently not under either of our guardianship.

    Are you intending to have your parents return custody solely to you once your divorce is finalized?

    Hubby can certainly pursue custody if you aren't. Or if you are.

    Unless CPS is involved?

    Mention that you have minor children in the divorce filing but inform the court that custody was determined in the _____ Court of _____ County in case number _________________.
    Parents should remember 3 things: Love your kids more than you hate your ex; when you have children the relationship with the other parent is until death; your children determine what type of nursing home you end up in.
    Nothing stated by me should be taken as giving you legal advice or forming an attorney/client relationship.

    Neither the father or I can seek custody at this point in time and probably not anytime in the near future. We have regular visitation of the kids and pay child support to my parents. Custody will be sought sometime in the next 3 years however.
