Actually it depends on the wording of the custody paperwork. It may be possible to do so. I know it is possible in Ohio under certain circumstances when it is an agreement.Either way, she clearly has/had standing and Mom can't just change her mind willy nilly after the fact.

I understand what happens in my state is irrelevant BUT I mention it only because I have not searched the caselaw in PA to determine if it is possible. OP should probably review with an attorney the custody paperwork to see if there is a way mom can have it reversed. Because the first time around it doesn't sound like she had counsel.If Mom is able to do what you suggest = not willy nilly. My statement stands.
And you of all people would be the first to say, "what happens in your state is irrelevant".
Good thing you remembered her, the little thread deleter. *ETA: Whoops, I see upon re-reading that LdiJ ALSO remembered the little thread deleter. My apologies, Ld.Let's not forget that OP came here for a reason in the first place. This time she came back to clarify her standing with regard to the court order. I can't remember what the first time was about, but there was more of a reason.
She went into much detail about the mother's lack of a job and lack of mothering skills when she lived with OP. I can't remember if/when she moved out, or how old she is. I do remember that the mother seemed to be making strides toward independence through working. I also can't remember how the father figured into the equation.
There were changes in circumstance with regard to the mother, though I understand those may not affect a custody modification.
Baby does not call us mommy and daddy.she is teaching the child to call her mommy and her husband daddy.
I wish it had gone in front of a judge.Finally, since mom voluntarily gave them custody that makes the situation a little different than if the judge had ordered it over mom's objections.
We had to as mom had bowed out.OP REALLY took to looking after the child.
Don't know Trissa."Trissa" thread. Poor illiterate Trissa.
Irregardless whether you are serious or not this made me lol.No truce.
Not in a million years.I remember wondering if PPD was involved, as well as whether Mom felt coerced. I don't think OP is as much in the clear as she seems to think she is...
How would you know if Mom felt coerced?
No. I had PPD when I had my son. This was definitely not the case.But - did PPD ever occur to you?
Why would I give up my life to care for someone elses child if I did not have the childs best interest at heart?you have the child's best interests at heart,
When and if she gets it together that is on the table.you will want the mother to regain custody of her child at some point
