In the state of Texas. if i wanted to give a close family friend temporary custody..?
of my child how do i go about doing so?
Where is the child's father?
Consider granting a medical power of attorney, if that would suffice for your needs.
You probably need to contact your state's Dept. of Children Services.
Be very careful, though. I've heard that once you've given custody to someone, it can be very, very difficult to regain custody.
you will have to hire an atty. be advised that the courts have ruled it abandonment if they did not come back in a timely manor
Are you the only parent?
