My mother-in-law is giving my husbands, sister’s kids back to her. She needs to know How to transfer child custody without a lawyer?
1) Phone or go to the county courthouse.
2) Find the "Clerk of Court" office.
3) Ask the nice lady about the proper forms.
4) Fill them out and file them.
I Assume there has already been some court involvement. She needs to go to that courthouse. She will also need the previous case number.She will be filing a motion to transfer custody. The clerk’s office will file this (filing fee?) and a hearing date will be set. Then you appear before the judge and he makes the ruling. Oh yeah, there may be some fee for notifying the mother of the hearing date too.
