Hello. I want to know if a grandmother can take a four year old away from her custod father. Recently the father was kicked out for not respecting the grandmothers rules to the house and he swears and yells infront of (not to) his daughter. He has no place to go but may go to a shelter. The grandmother is the one that feeds her, buys her clothes, and gave her a room to stay. She pays for her to enroll in school as well. Can a grandmother take her away from her father even if he has full custody? He has no job, or money. He recently applied for food stamps. The grandmother dont want to picture her living on the street or fail to go back to school because of the father. What can she do to make sure the child is safe and/or return home without the father? What is the grandmothers rights? Please help, and let me know.
