This is purely research for a novel I'm writing and I'm not sure how to research this on line, so I'm asking here.
The main character of my book gains custody of his niece and nephew after his sister and BIL are killed in a car wreck via their will. Babies were taken by c-section before mom died. With the will in place for him to take custody, what paperwork would he have to fill out and what court procedures would he have to go through? Are they automatically his legally, or would he have to adopt them? What about the birth cert? His name or the bio-parents?
Any help would be greatly welcomed!! Thanks in advance!!
