DP has sole parental responsibility of his son.
The BM of this child has no contact with him (including no phone contact in the past few months), is heavily involved in drugs and is an unfit parent (as deemed by the courts).
DP (as per my previous posts) is facing criminal charges for a crime commited a few years ago. In a few months, sentencing will be handed down. Chances are DP will not do any prison time, BUT there is always a chance, and we want to be prepared in case that does happen. If DP is incarcerated, DP has asked me to have DSS for whatever his sentence is. I've agreed, BUT i want to know if theres a way to provide me with temporary custody?
Is it possible to be awarded temporary custody for the period that DP is in custody (Max of 3 months ish)?
I will need to be able to deal with DSS's medical needs should anything happen, be able to sign him in and out of daycare, preferably have access to family tax benifits to afford to pay his day care etc.
Any info would be muchly appreciated
