Emergency Custody – Securing Immediate Custody of Your Child

Unfortunately, sometimes it is not safe for a child to live with one or both parents or guardians. In these cases, the concerned parent, or other loving family member, can seek emergency custody to quickly remove the child from its dangerous circumstances. In emergency custody situations, a court will place a child in a safe environment until a more permanent arrangement can be made.

How The Courts Decide When to Grant Emergency Custody

Before a court grants an emergency custody order, the child must be exposed to circumstances that present immediate danger. In any other other circumstance, a court will generally expect the parties to go through regular custody processes, which usually take more time.


Some of the most common circumstances under which a parent or other loving family member can seek an emergency custody order, are:

  • when one or both parents or guardians has physically or sexually abused the child, or threatened to do so;
  • when one or both parents or guardians are involved with substance abuse; or
  • when one or both parents or guardians have abandoned or significantly neglected the child.

Emergency custody may also be necessary when both of a child's parents or guardians die or are so seriously injured they cannot care for the child.

What Happens After Emergency Custody is Granted

Emergency custody is always temporary. In almost all circumstances where an emergency custody order has been granted, the court requires a further, permanent custody decision to be made. Many times the court will want to work with the child's parents or guardians to ultimately reunite them in a healthy, safe environment.

Taking Immediate Legal Action to Protect Your Kids

If you believe you need to secure emergency custody of your child in order to protect their well- being, your unbundled attorney will discuss with you whether you have the legal basis to proceed. Your unbundled attorney can then assist in demonstrating to the courts why granting you immediate emergency custody is in the best interest of your child's well-being.
