Q. What would we need to do to have custody of our nephew for a while with consent from his father who has sole custody?
A: What you are describing can either be accomplished through a delegation of parental authority (power of attorney) or through limited guardianship. A limited guardianship will take longer and will cost more, but offers Court oversight and protection if mom were to become an issue. A delegation of parental authority requires no court involvement, must be renewed every 6 months, and are often not understood (or enforced) by police if mom and her visitation become an issue. It is significantly faster and less expensive. You can also do both, getting the delegation of parental authority drawn up while you wait for the limited guardianship to go through the Court process.
