    My daughter attempted suicide and I found out she has been using drugs. How do I go about getting temporary custody of my grandchild? At this point my daughter seems not to care about anything. Any advise is appreciated !!

    You need to see a lawyer ASAP on look into the possibility of seeking an emergency order of custody.

    What about the father? That will be the first issue that comes up. Where is the child now? It would be helpful if there is a history of you providing care for the child.

    There can be a great deal of difference in how these cases are handled -even from on judge to another. You need to get an appointment with a lawyer who handles cases like this and who will know how each judge views emergency orders.
