Third-Party Custody

Assistance With Third-Party Custody Actions

At Lutz & Associates, P.S., we understand the problems of children living in unsuitable family environments. We offer experienced legal representation to help clients in third-party custody actions to protect children with unfit parents. Attorneys David Lutz, Jorge Ramos and Adam Teal help clients understand third-party or nonparental child custody and the circumstances under which it is permitted. There are many family circumstances in which it is in the child’s best interest to be raised and cared for by another family member, such as:

  • A parent is in prison.
  • The child is abused or neglected by the parent.
  • A parent is not ready to care for a child on his or her own.
  • A parent has a drug, alcohol or substance abuse problem.
  • Other situations that show the parents are not suitable custodians of the child.
