What Is Temporary Custody?

The purpose of temporary custody is to place a divorcing couple’s children in the custody of a trusted, non-parent for a set period, usually until the divorce and permanent custody terms are finalized. Usually those granted temporary custody are extended family members, like an uncle or aunt, or the grandparents.

The person or people granted temporary child custody will have temporary parental rights, including:

  • Permission to provide consent for medical treatment
  • Access to education information, birth certificates, medical and dental records
  • Ability to do anything necessary for the child’s care
