ok I let my daughter stay the weekend with my 19yr old brother and his live in girlfriend now he says he wants custody of her!!! wtf he think im just gonna give my 9yr old daughter to him..he has no kids...what would you say???
I think that if I had a family member who wanted to raise my child I would tell them thank you for the compliment that you think my child is wonderful - but I kind of like having my child around. If a family member continued to harp on it then I would say, respectfully, "I understand you love my child and I appreciate it but if you really think that you have a legal claim to raising my child you need to hire a family attorney and take me to court." Or you can just do the snarky thing (I wouldn't recommend it) "Sure, you hire an attorney, pay his fees, pay the court fees.....but adoption is around $13,000 to $20,000 on average. Do you have that? Because I just can't afford for you to adopt her right now. I hope you can. But thanks for the offer." See where that gets him.
