can I get custody?

My niece is in a bad situation.

Dad (my brother) is on his 4th DWI, cannot drive, is on drugs, currently serving time in jail.

Mom (they are not married), is an addict, had multiple dwi as well, does not work, had primary custody.

My niece is neglected, eats like shit, her teeth are rotting out of her head... the only time she brushes is when she is with my parents on the weekends...

This is just a summary.... doesn't nearly begin to tell the whole story.

My mom is going to talk to a family lawyer to see what we can do to get temporary to permanent custody.

Anyone have experience with this?

Try talking to her mother and see if she will agree to give yu temporary custody first.

I don't know but I really hope you get her out of that horrible situation. She deserves so much better than that.

I thought about that but am not sure how she would react

The worst thing she can do is say "NO", then you can take it from there with the Attorney.

Nothing happens if you don't try.
